Description of Mosstrond cross country skiing in Norway

If you've never been cross country skiing before, Norway is a great place to start. Not only does the country boast pure and simple isolation but you'll also find a small group ready and waiting to make your acquaintance as you explore together around the frozen shores of Lake Mosvatn close to the realm of Hardangervidda National Park.

This week of cross country skiing is ideal for solo travellers and fairly fit lovers of the great outdoors who are looking to make the most of snow covered Norway during the winter as well as strengthening technique and building confidence in some seriously serene surroundings.

Over the course of the holiday you'll be cross country skiing on six out of eight days with new routes and lesser known trails providing ample chances to ski without a soul in sight other than the beady eyes of elk and reindeer peering across frozen lakes or from out of snow-bowed pine forests.

Holiday information

Small group tours:
Small group travel is not large group travel scaled down. It is modeled on independent travel – but with the advantage of a group leader to take care of the itinerary, accommodation and tickets, and dealing with the language. It’s easy to tick off the big sights independently – but finding those one-off experiences, local festivals, travelling markets and secret viewpoints is almost impossible for someone without the insider knowledge gained from years in the field. Those with a two-week holiday, a small group tour will save valuable planning time.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

UK office
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies in place, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.

Group size
This tour operates on a maximum group size of 12, which ensures a low impact on the community and allows us to stay in the unique and characterful boarding house accommodation that would not have benefited from tourism due to their limited size. We always ensure our operations do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people.

Activity
Our selection of alternative winter activities seeks to make the most of the natural environment in its pristine state, rather than changing it. Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and dogsledding are best suited to remote wilderness areas and the development of these alternatives is key to the long-term survival of many mountain communities.

People

Leaders & local suppliers
Our cross-country skiing holidays in general avoid large alpine ski areas, and are less dependent on snow cannons, graded pistes and ski lifts, creating significantly less environmental impact than alpine skiing holidays. On this trip, we are even further away from the winter resorts and skiing in this area brings tourism into a very small community. Situated in the centre of a lake where road access is impossible during the winter, our base is a renovated boarding school that offers a warm welcome from our hosts who are also experienced cross-country skiers. Thanks to the limitless amount of trails available every day, there is no need to use any transport during the week so the only imprint on this pristine environment should be our cross-country ski tracks.
