Breivikeidet: Introduction to Cross-Country Skiing

2. Breivikeidet: Introduction to Cross-Country Skiing

The tour departs outside the Scandic Ishavshotel where you will be picked up for a scenic 50-minute transfer to our camp in Breivikeidet. Upon arrival at our camp in Breivikeidet, situated in a picturesque valley close to the sea, you will be welcomed by your tour guide. We will provide you with thermal suits, boots, hat, mittens and cross-country gear (skis and poles). Before heading out on this adventure, we will teach you some basic skills: how to move, how to put your skis on, how to fall and get back on your skis. With these techniques under your belt, you will then trek through the beautiful alpine landscape together with the guide. Trust us - you do not need to have any previous experience - you will get it during the day along with the instructor. After the tour, you are invited into our lavvu (traditional sami tent) where you can warm up by the campfire with some hot drinks and cake. In addition, our basecamp is also the starting point for dogsledding tours, so there are about 80 huskies on the location ready to meet people and be cuddled with. After you have had some time to relax and warm up, you will be driven back to the city with hopefully great memories of your cross-country adventure!

It was amazing! The instructor was extremely kind and helpful, and it was an overall fun experience. We rode with the dog-sledding tour, so we got to meet and cuddle the huskies at the end, which was an added bonus. The activity was just the right amount of time, and it was organized very well.

Our instructor Dima was just lovely. we were lucky that it was just myself and my partner, we learnt a lot and was able to practice in a beautiful setting. The guides made sure we had everything we needed and rounded off the visit with a hot drink, muffin and husky cuddles.

This was even more fun than I anticipated! The sledding was a unique experience in a scenic location, the reindeer were so cute and fun to feed, and the lunch and culture tour were very informative! Highly recommend :)

Beautiful and long sled tour. Plenty of time to feed the reindeer. Good stew lunch in a pleasant atmosphere. Very friendly and informative staff.

The trip was great, amazing experience the reindeer are friendly but they fight for food I strongly recommend great
