  • Notices

    Most of the excursion is on flat terrain, but guests must have a level of physical fitness and certain degree of flexibility to participate.

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.

After our little skiing trip, we’ll take a break beside a bonfire, where you’ll be served a hot drink and some lefse, a sweet flatbread snack.
