Itinerary

icon Day 1 : Start Kvitavatn. Evening briefing with the group before dinner.

Location: Kvitåvatn

Meals: Dinner

Start Kvitavatn.

icon Day 2 : Start of six days of cross-country skiing 

Location: Kvitåvatn

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

We prefer not to specify in advance where we will ski each day. This is to
enhance the flexibility and adapt to weather and snow conditions and to some
extent the ability of each group. The next few days is a guide. 
Beginners will start on a flat area of land next to lodge where it’s safe
to get a feel for the skis and the basic techniques. More experienced groups
will head out into the local area, just to get our ski legs back.

icon Day 3 : Cross-country skiing around Kvitavatn 

Location: Kvitåvatn

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

There is an endless range of skiing possibilities with 80km of varied tracks
through forests and open country, as well as a good selection of downhill
runs. The off-track touring is excellent and takes us above the tree line
where there is a vast expanse of wilderness to explore - the summit of
Ornenipa can be reached and the Heddersfjell moors can be explored, both at
around 1300m. 

icon Day 4 : Venturing further afield 

Location: Kvitåvatn

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

By now beginners will have mastered the basics and the days are spent out
exploring the rugged mountains and dense forest. More advanced skiers will
venture into the stark wilderness above the treeline. Skiers of all abilities
will fall in love with the sheer magnificence of the beautiful Norwegian
winter landscape. 

icon Day 5 : Free day

Location: Kvitåvatn

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today is free, you can either venture out with new friends to ski in the
area, or you may choose to take to some downhill skis, or explore the forests
by snowshoe.

free day on this day.

Tea and coffee are available all day at no extra charge. Vegetarians are extremely well catered for. Beer and wine can be purchased at the Fjellstue but alcohol in Norway is expensive due to high taxes with 0.5ltr [approx 1 pint] of lager costing about GBP 6 so many visitors bring their own supplies.  However Norway's strict licensing laws mean that you have to drink these in your own room, and only alcohol purchased from the Fjellstue may be consumed in the dining room and other public areas.

We were largely off track ski ing and the area is wild and beautiful.

Once off track we rarely saw another skier.

We saw more animal than human tracks.

We warmed up outside every morning to the amusement of the locals and then stretched in the evening before taking a sauna.

The only downside was that some people got jealous of the special desserts they made for me each day (as well as soya ice-cream)We had a great group and had lovely sunny weather although a bit hot on a few daysConditions were great the first 2 days then a bit warmSkiing was harder than a remembered but enjoyableHardest bit of the trip was knowing what and how much to wearI packed lots of thin long sleeved items and a few bike tops which proved very useful.

I found liner gloves were really helpful too; ....less

Enjoyed it immensely [apart from the classic 'third day 'when everything ached and nothing worked!!] By the end of the week the last 3 days comprised quite a lot of of track skiing and suddenly I was managing to stay upright, turn and stop going down hill!The enjoyment was enhanced by the generally superb weather, mainly clear blue skies and sunshine.
