Skiing trip Coastal Expedition Norway HGR 136607 Agurtxane Concellon
  • Ideal for beginners who want to learn the basics of cross-country skiing.

  • Practice on easy, flat terrain with soft snow.

  • Enjoy fresh air, marvelous scenery, and maybe even the magical Northern Lights!

  • Relax by the bonfire with a hot drink and local snack.

This tour is a fantastic introduction to cross-country skiing. First, our experienced skiing instructors will teach you some basic techniques, from how to get your skis on and off to how to ski across a flat area.

Once you’ve mastered these basic skills, we’ll take you skiing along flat terrain on trails suitable for your level. Enjoy the beautiful scenery as you gently glide along the top of Tromsøya Island, a short drive from the city center.

As you become more accustomed to the skis and more confident on the snow, your instructors will introduce more techniques along the route. By the end of the tour, you might even be able to navigate up and over small hills.

During the trip, we will have a stop where the guide will offer some warm juice and a piece of local pastry.
