We have a passion for cross country skiing and are one of the few British companies employing professional qualified ski instructors. We offer cross country skiing in three styles; 'classic' which is what most people recognise as 'cross country' and resembles walking/running on skis, 'skate' which is a skating motion, and 'off track' which means skiing where there are no groomed or prepared tracks. At the bottom of this page you can select the type of skiing holiday you would like to book.

Cross country skiing goes by many names such as 'nordic skiing', 'langlauf', or 'ski de fond'. With all of these disciplines 'ski lifts' are not used and it is your own efforts which propel you across the landscape. For a greater understanding please refer to our Guide to Cross Country Skiing or our Frequently Asked Questions.
On our trips you will have first class instructors who ensure that learning is fun. The emphasis on excellent instruction is perhaps no surprise as both our co-founders hold the highest cross country ski qualification awarded by the International Ski Instructors Association. Simply choose the trip which most suits your experience, expectations and level of fitness and we will do the rest.
All our trips are available for private groups. If you would like to travel on different dates, or with family or friends on a bespoke trip, then please get in touch giving your preferred dates and itinerary.
This trip is a 'combination' of our two long-weekend winter holidays. Our Italian Ski Break in the stunning valley of Cogne, and our Snowshoe Long Weekend, based in the world famous Chamonix Valley, France. These trips are aimed as introductions to cross country skiing and snowshoeing, both fabulous ways to explore the winter wonderland and activities which are steadily increasing their following. Go on have a go!
If you've been wanting to do a journey on skis, then this is the one for you. Stunning scenery, excellent tracks, and cosy hotels with saunas to welcome you in from the snow. The perfect introduction to cross country touring in Norway.
Excellent cross country skiing in Norway with over 140 kms (87.5 miles) of tracks and wonderful views to the Rondane mountains. Wild reindeer roam the slopes of the magical mountain of Muen, moose feed in the forest, and occasionally the Northern Lights dance in the sky.
