Activity description

Skiing is a combination between balance and technique. Once you reach our basecamp, we will teach you some basic skills: how to get started, how to put your skis on, how to fall and then get back on your skis. With these techniques under your belt, you will then trek through the beautiful alpine landscape together with the guide. Trust us - you do not need to have any previous experience - you will get it during the day along with the instructor.

The experienced guides will be there for you, teaching you the important techniques to know when cross-country skiing. Cross-country is all about enjoying nature, combined with keeping your balance and techniques in check.

Really enjoyable

Very enjoyable for two first-time cross-country skiers.
  • 5 / 5

As we hadn't done cross country skiiing before, this experience was a great way to learn in a safe environment. I would imagine it would be quite boring to anyone that knew how to ski already as the pace of the skiing is restricted by the slowest person in the group.
