Level 3: Medium
Meals during the excursion: Hot beverages and lefse, a local Norwegian snack.
Clothes: Wear warm clothes, including a wind-proof jacket/pants, a hat, and mittens (essential because you quickly cool down when taking a break); winter clothing is not included on this excursion. Rest rooms are available. Most of the excursion is on flat terrain. Participants should be flexible and in good general physical condition.
On this excursion we take you cross-country skiing along flat terrain, most of which is on prepared trails. Take in the beautiful scenery as you gently cross-country ski along the top of Tromsøya Island, just a short drive from Tromsø's city center.
First, our experienced ski instructors teach you some fundamental ski techniques: how to put your skis on and take them off, getting back up after a fall, and how to glide across a completely flat surface. As you become more accustomed to the skis and gain confidence, the instructors teach you other techniques, so that by the end of the tour, you may want to challenge yourself on small hills. After our cross-country ski trek, we take a break, and you are served a hot beverage and a traditional Norwegian snack called ‘lefse’.
