'Norwegians are born with skis on', goes the saying, and it follows that the national sport of cross-country skiing is a must while visiting. Our trip is suitable for complete beginners that have never tried skiing before, so this is a golden opportunity to take in beautiful scenery while getting to the heart of Norwegian culture and also learning to ski!
After just a 5-minute transfer a guide will teach you how to cross country ski in easy but stunning terrain at the top of Tromsø Island. The cross-country ski tracks are well prepared, and reasonably flat, especially to begin with. Your guide will ease you through how to take skis on and off as well as basic cross-country technique once you feel ready. When you feel comfortable your guide can teach you further skills and give you instructions on how to tackle small up and down hill slopes.
