Cross-Country Ski Course
This might be the perfect start on your Norwegian winter holiday. With our beginner course we will make sure you know all the techniques and skills needed to venture out on your very own little adventure.
There’s a saying that says Norwegians are born with skis on their feet, we might not get you to this level but you will learn how to put on the skis and standing up, to how to fall safely and move more efficiently. And last but not least; going down hill! When the course is complete we will head back to the office for some home made waffles and briefing with the guides, now’s your chance to get some recommendations for your next solo adventure!.

We meet at Lyngen Adventure HQ at 1045 and try equipment. By 11:00 we are headed out the door and jump in our van for a 5 minute drive towards a nice and easy beginners track. Our track allows for much variation so there should be plenty of fun challenges for everyone. From fun downhills to technique training on the flat.
