Fairy-tale winter adventures

This tour is on request, please contact us for information and booking

This week you will experience nature and winter at its finest. Go cross-country skiing and snowshoeing on your own and maybe spot a moose. If you are not so familiar with cross-country skiing, you can take part in a beginner's course before you enter the well-prepared trails or make your own tracks through the untouched snow.

You will spend your nights in cosy wilderness cabins and enjoy delicious meals in unique places - in our Gamme and perhaps an outdoor barbeque. Experience the silence and the beautiful stars of the winter sky. Even the northern lights can surprise us on a clear night.

Enjoy a special time with your family behind a sledge, with dogs eager to give you an experience you will not forget.
