We are the only adventure holiday company to be recognised by the British Association of Snowsport Instructors as a Nordic Ski School. Cross country skiing is our passion and we work with professional fully qualified ski instructors. We offer cross country skiing in 3 styles; 'classic' which resembles walking or running on skis, 'skate' which is the same motion as ice skating, 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', or 'ski de fond'. Ski 'lifts' are not used and it is your own efforts which propel you across the landscape. For a greater understanding refer to our Guide to Cross Country Skiing or Frequently Asked Questions.
On our trips you will have first class instructors who ensure that learning is fun. The emphasis on excellent instruction is 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 suits your experience, expectations and level of fitness and we will do the rest.
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.
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!
Excellent spa hotel, delicious Italian coffee, and wonderful ski tracks. Cogne offers first class cross country skiing making it the perfect location for your first experience on 'skinny' skis. It really is the perfect winter break!
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.
The gorgeous Obergoms Valley in Switzerland has just got to be the best for improving your 'skate' ski technique. Wide trails, lots of flat terrain, sunny, and with lots of coffee stop potential. In addition, you have a train to take the strain. Perfect week for those who have always wanted to master 'skating'.
