Backcountry Skiing Experience

An 8 day backcountry skiing tour in the magic winter scenery of Nord-Østerdalen. On traditional wooden skis we glide quietly through an untouched winter world, discover forests and mountains deep with snow. The nights we stay in a cosy farm house. Adventurous ones may spend a night outdoors around a campfire under a starry sky. We get back to nature and a simple life.

The skitours lead through varied terrain, over snow-covered plateaus, onto sunlit mountains tops and through wooded valleys. On the day trips we learn how to navigate by natural signs and clues and how to comply with the elemental forces wind, weather and snow. Occasionally, we also track animals and gain insight into their lives.

We get accommodation at a secluded mountain farm in the middle of the woods. Whoever is seeking for a little adventure can spend one night outside in a snow camp under the brilliant starry sky, beside a warming fire or in the shelter of a large spruce. A week rich of lasting impressions that promote our connection with nature.
