Introduction to Cross-Country Skiing


Embark on a cross-country skiing adventure in Tromsø, where you can glide along existing trails or create your own snowy path. This tour suits to both beginners and intermediates, offering a perfect opportunity to exercise and experience the satisfaction of mastering the tracks.

The journey begins outside the Scandic Ishavshotel, where you'll be picked up for a scenic 50-minute bus drive to our camp in Breivikeidet. Nestled in a picturesque valley near the sea, our basecamp provides a stunning backdrop for your skiing experience.

Upon arrival, your knowledgeable guide will welcome you and equip you with thermal suits, boots, hat, mittens, and cross-country gear (skis and poles). Before venturing into the alpine landscape, you'll receive instruction on essential skills such as movement, putting on skis, falling, and getting back on your skis. No prior experience is required, as you'll grasp the basics during the day.

As you glide through the breathtaking terrain with your guide, you'll immerse yourself in the beauty of the surroundings. After the skiing adventure, step into our lavvu, a traditional Sami tent, where you can warm up by the campfire and indulge in hot drinks and cake.

The basecamp is also home to around 80 huskies, adding an extra layer of excitement. Take some time to meet these friendly companions and enjoy their company. Once you've relaxed and warmed up, you'll be driven back to the city, leaving with cherished memories of your cross-country skiing escapade.
