Cross Country Skiing Holidays

OFFICIALLY RECOGNISED B.A.S.I Nordic Ski School

We are the only adventure holiday company to be recognised by the British Association of Snowsport Instructors as a Nordic Ski School. Cross country skiing is our passion and we work with professional fully qualified ski instructors. We offer cross country skiing in 3 styles; 'classic' which resembles walking or running on skis, 'skate' which is the same motion as ice skating, and 'off track' which means skiing where there are no groomed or prepared tracks.

Welcome to our winter wonderland

  • Enjoy first class ski tuition from excellent qualified instructors 
  • Learn to cross country ski in stunning mountain surroundings
  • Ski in unique locations; Lapland, Czech Republic, Poland and more
  • Join us on our epic long-distance ski journeys along world famous routes

Cross country skiing goes by many names such as 'nordic skiing', 'langlauf', or 'ski de fond'. Ski 'lifts' are not used and it is your own efforts which propel you across the landscape. For a greater understanding refer to our Guide to Cross Country Skiing or Frequently Asked Questions.

On our trips you will have first class instructors who ensure that learning is fun. The emphasis on excellent instruction is 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 suits your experience, expectations and level of fitness and we will do the rest.

Swiss Skate Skiing

Switzerland

The gorgeous Obergoms Valley in Switzerland has just got to be the best for improving your 'skate' ski technique. Wide trails, lots of flat terrain, sunny, and with lots of coffee stop potential. In addition, you have a train to take the strain. Perfect week for those who have always wanted to master 'skating'.
