We are pleased have now confirmed our new cross country ski tour to Sweden.
Skiing entirely on groomed trails we will be leading a tour in the charming Dalarna region. Our itinerary offers a true taste of the region both on and off your skis. The trip starts with two warm up days around Sälen, exploring both the tracks and wilder mountain trails then progressing onto a fairly luxurious four-day point-to-point tour along the route of the historic Vasaloppet. All whilst travelling at a comfortable pace. There is also time to visit the capital of Stockholm.
Sälen is home to 250km of prepared ski tracks and start of the ‘Vasaloppet’ 90km considered to be the oldest, longest, and biggest cross-country ski races in the world.
Our Swedish Vasaloppet ski tour offers 120kms of relatively easy to moderate skiing over 6 days. We have graded this trip at 'Intermediate' level. This is the perfect introduction to classic ‘track touring’ as well as time to make improvements to your technique along the way. The four-day Vasaloppet tour also allows for a preview of the racecourse for a possible future challenge!
The trip at a glance:
4 nights in an historic hotel in Sälen with spa facilities
120km of reliable track skiing
Perfect introduction to track touring
Ski the Vasaloppet trail at a leisurely pace - 20kms per day
