5M Cross-Country Skiing (Tromsø)

5M Cross-Country Skiing (Tromsø)

Once you’ve picked up a few basic skills from our experienced ski instructors, we take you skiing along flat terrain, most of which on prepared trails. Take in the beautiful scenery as you gently ski along the top of Tromsøya Island, just a short drive from Tromsø city centre. First, we teach you some fundamental ski techniques, from how to get your skis on and off, getting back up after a fall, to gliding across a completely flat area. As you become more accustomed to the skis and gain more confidence, the instructors teach you additional techniques along the route, 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 where you are served a hot drink and a traditional Norwegian snack called lefse.
