Full description
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!

    My daughter and I really enjoyed this introduction to cross country skiing. Our guides Magnus and Julie were very patient and helped make the experience a positive one. The equipment provided is excellent, the actual skiing took around 1.5 hours, which is plenty for a first time. We had the chance to visit the Alaskan Huskies which are based at the same activity centre. Tea, coffee and cake was also provided. A very professional and efficient operation run by polite, friendly staff.

    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.
