The tour starts in Kvitavatn. Take your time to settle into your accommodation before we start our skiing adventure tomorrow (D).
We prefer not to specify in advance where we will ski each day. This is to enhance the flexibility and adapt to weather, snow conditions and the group's ability. The next few days is a guide. We will will start on a flatter area next to the lodge, where it is safe to get a feel for the skis and the basic techniques or rediscover our ski legs.
Later we will venture off track to learn, or refresh our memories, about how to adapt our skills to this terrain (B/L/D).
There is an endless range of skiing possibilities with 50mi (80km) of varied tracks through forests and open country, plus a good selection of downhill runs. The off-track touring is excellent and can takes us above the tree line, where there is a vast expanse of wilderness to explore – depending on the conditions the summit of Ornenipa can be reached and the Heddersfjell moors can be explored, both at around 4,265ft (1,300m) (B/L/D).
By now, beginners will have mastered the basics and the days are spent exploring the rugged mountains and dense forest. More advanced skiers will venture into the stark wilderness above the treeline. Skiers of all abilities will fall in love with the sheer magnificence of the beautiful Norwegian winter landscape (B/L/D).
Today you can either venture out with new friends to ski in the area, or you may choose to hire some downhill skis, or explore the forests by snowshoe. Cross country skiing is also provided for those who want it (B/L/D).
We're back on the skis for another day exploring all the beauty this area has to offer (B/L/D).
We enjoy a final day of skiing, this will be a full day out with a picnic lunch in the Norwegian wilderness (B/L/D).
The tour ends after breakfast. We'll say goodbye to our mountain lodge, which may feel like a second home by now, and begin our return journey home (B).
