Once in Norway you cannot leave without trying our national sport! If you have never tried skiing before, or are hesitant, this is your opportunity to learn cross country skiing in a scenic and relaxed environment.
Departures twice daily at 9.00 and 13.00
We ski in flat terrain, mostly on prepared trails on the top of Tromsøya island, a short drive away from the city center (about 5 minutes).
First, we teach you how to put the skis on and off. Then we begin to ski using basic techniques in a completely flat area. After some training, we introduce some different techniques and by the end of the tour you should be able to challenge yourself on small hills!
We ski towards the northern part of the island in a scenic area with birch and spruce forests. During the tour we take a break where you will be served a hot drink and lefse (a local sweet snack).
As the weather can change rapidly in Northern Norway to join this tour it is obligatory to wear warm and windproof clothes. Winter clothes are not included in the price of the tour, but can be rented separately at our rental center upon prior arrangement.
From mid-February onward the sun can be surprisingly strong, especially because of the reflecting snow, so we recommend you also bring sunglasses and sun cream with you.
