Introduction to Cross-Country Skiing

Get your tickets here

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.

Ski along existing trails or create your own. Cross-country skiing is a great way to exercise and you will feel a real sense of satisfaction once you overpower the track! This tour is appropriate for both beginners and intermediates.

In addition, at the basecamp, we have more than 80 friendly Alaskan huskies that love to interact and meet new people. Each of them with their own name and personality. They love to cuddle, so don’t be afraid to give them a hug or two.
