Experience the magic of winter with a cross-country ski trip from mountain lodge to mountain lodge in Rondane. We transport your luggage while you ski or snowshoe from accommodation to accommodation. The trip is self-guided, allowing you to go at your own pace and take breaks or detours as you wish. In the evenings, you can relax by the fireplace and share stories from the day`s adventures.

Bring your family, friends, or enjoy the trip on you own. The terrain at Høvringen is gentle, and the tour is suitable for most. The stages are 6 – 12 km in well-prepared tracks, with the option for longer trips if your energy allows. The hosts at the lodges are well-acquainted with the area and can provide you with the best skiing options tailored to the weather conditions and your preferences. After completing each day`s stage, you`ll arrive at the mountain lodge, where the welcoming host awaits you with made beds and a delicious three-course dinner based on local ingredients. Accommodation is available in family or double rooms, with shower/WC.

Høvringen offers a fantastic network of well-groomed ski trails and snowshoe tracks that take you through the amazing winter landscape. If you choose to go higher in the terrain, off the beaten path, you`ll be awarded with panoramic views of Rondane. The towering peaks of the Rondane mountains are an impressive sight in winter with rocky formations emerging from the snow. The contrast between the rugged mountains and the pristine snow is a feast for the eyes.
