We have a true passion for cross country skiing and are one of the few British companies employing professional ski instructors. We offer cross country skiing in three styles; 'classic' which is what most people recognise as 'cross country' and resembles walking/running on skis, 'skate' which is a skating motion, and 'off track' which means skiing where there are no groomed or prepared tracks.

Cross country skiing goes by many names such as 'nordic skiing', 'langlauf', 'ski de fond', 'telemark', etc. Most of our trips are 'classic' involving a running/walking motion, we have several 'skate' trips, and we also offer 'off track' touring which is away from prepared ski tracks and in remoter areas. With all of these disciplines 'ski lifts' are not used and it is your own efforts which propel you across the landscape. For an understanding of the disciplines please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions.
On our trips you will have first class instructors who ensure that learning is fun. The emphasis on excellent instruction is perhaps no surprise as both our co-founders hold the highest cross country ski qualification awarded by the International Ski Instructors Association. Simply choose the trip which most suits your experience, expectations and level of fitness and we will do the rest.
We have introduced children as young as 8 to the sport, and encouraged octogenarians who have dreamed of a ski journey across the Norwegian wilderness. Many of our previous 'beginners' are now joining us on long distance ski journeys. It is a joy to witness!
All our trips are available for private groups. If you would like to travel on different dates, or with family or friends on a bespoke trip, then please get in touch giving your preferred dates and itinerary.
If you've been wanting to do a journey on skis, then this is the one for you. Stunning scenery, excellent tracks, and cosy hotels with saunas to welcome you in from the snow. The perfect introduction to cross country touring in Norway.
This trip is a 'combination' of our two long-weekend winter holidays. Our Italian Ski Break in the stunning valley of Cogne, and our Snowshoe Long Weekend, based in the world famous Chamonix Valley, France. These trips are aimed as introductions to cross country skiing and snowshoeing, both fabulous ways to explore the winter wonderland and activities which are steadily increasing their following. Go on have a go!
A unique experience in the forests of Finland as we ski along the Finnish-Russian frontier. Immerse yourself in local tradition, learn the history of this fascinating area, and if we are lucky the Aurora Borealis will light up the skies! A great combination of several days instruction at Finland's top cross country ski area, and then a three day journey along the frontier.
