Cross-country skiing, starting at Høvringen - the gateway to Rondane National Park. You ski in 800 - 900 meters altitude, with spectacular views of the Rondane Mountains, which include 10 peaks beyond 2000 meters.
The tour runs from north to south and ends at Kvamfjellet. This part of Rondane offers spectacular scenery, varied skiing terrain and traditional accommodation. You stay 2 - 3 nights at each destination where you have time to enjoy miles of groomed tracks and great skiing alternatives.
This trip fits experienced skiers in good shape. On certain parts, the trails are groomed daily, on others only when necessary. The weather can be rough, with heavy snowfall and winds. Under such conditions it is difficult to maintain the tracks, and you must follow marking and use maps and compass.
This trip fits experienced skiers. You need to master the use of maps and compass and be prepared for all kinds of weather.

We recommend good cross-country skis with half steel edges. There are opportunities for ski rental at Høvringen. Hire in Norway will normally be on 'waxable' skis. The stable Norwegian snow conditions mean waxing is easy to pick up and you'll soon feel the benefits of a faster glide on a well-waxed ski! The skis at Høveringen are half-metal edged with Back Country boots and bindings. We advise that if hiring, you hire skis AND boots, rather than hoping your boots will fit the bindings.
We can customize the trip for groups of min. 8-10 people, both with and without luggage transfer and tour guide.
