Join Will, a UIMLA-certified mountain leader, for this epic week of nordic skiing across the majestic Norwegian tundra.
* Learn how to ice climb.
* Spend a day dog sledding across the tundra.
* Camp under the stars with the chance to see the aurora.
Join me for this epic, 1-week cross-country skiing expedition in the pristine beauty of western Norway!
For the first part of the week, we will go over all the necessary skills to safely and successfully cross-country ski in such a cold and potentially dangerous landscape.
Along the way we will also try our hands at ice climbing a frozen waterfall and even spend a day racing along the tundra on dog sleds. When we are not honing our winter sports skills, you will have plenty of time to explore the quaint and idyllic town of Hovden. We will even spend one day in the spa, relaxing after a day out on the hills.
For the last two days, we will go out on an overnight expedition. Weather permitting, we will spend the night in a snow hole at 2.400 meters above sea level. Here we will have an excellent chance to see the northern lights!
By the time our trip is over, you will have received a taste of several different winter sports and hopefully had the chance to take in the majestic northern lights. Whatever the case, this will surely leave you yearning to book another nordic adventure soon.
So what are you waiting for? Book now for this eclectic and exciting 1-week cross-country skiing expedition in the breathtaking western Norwegian wilderness!
If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my 1-week hiking expedition in the Dolomites!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
