Description of Kamben cross country skiing in Norway

Kamben, slap bang in the middle of Norway, conjures up the ideal spot from where to embark on a week of cross country skiing with small groups invited to settle in amongst snow bowed pine forests in a locally owned hotel that also boasts private cabins hidden deeper into the woods.

The location, just north of Gol, offers access to the wide range of nursery slopes and posted cross country trails which surround the Golsfjellet ski resort. These include options to ski to Oset, the Tislei River and experience Golsfjell’s six summits from where views over Jotunheim National Park and the Hardangervidda always outweigh any excessive exertion as well as helping to increase your appetite in readiness for delicious meals ahead.

This week in Kamben is ideal for all levels of cross country skier with gradual climbs, daily tuition and an excellent range of trails, leading through snowy wooded glades and across undulating plateaus interspersed with birch, pine and conifers, offering every excuse to get out and explore.

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.


Accommodation and meals:
We stay in a locally owned hotel Kamben Hoyfjellshotell, set amongst Norwegian pine trees and private cabins. Like many hotels in Norway the hotel has an active approach to responsible tourism. With a strong emphasis on protecting the local environment, this is done through high levels of recycling, low energy lighting, fossil-free energy supplies through solar panels and sourcing local produce.
The hotel has a restaurant serving a perfect mixture of local cuisine including lamb, salmon, cod, homemade soups even the beer is brewed locally. Packed lunches are made up from the buffet breakfast and the hotel offers to fill thermos flask with tea or coffee free of charge. The tap water in Norway is very good and the hotel doesn’t sell bottled water, so be sure to bring a bottle or camelback to fill.

As we spend the week cross-country skiing, we have a very low impact on the environment. Erosion on and adjacent to popular paths is a growing problem in certain places and therefore our trip leaders encourage clients to stick to advised routes in order to minimise this. We believe in leaving no more than footprints, however we do want toleave behind a positive cultural exchange by engaging with locals and using local businesses. By hiring our skis locally and using transport in the area, we are immediately having a positive effect on the community.

Group Size:
This small group tour has a maximum of 16 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people.

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, 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.


Local Craft and Culture:
Due to the remote location of Kamben Hoyfjellshotell there is little opportunity to purchase local crafts. Although handmade woollen socks can be bought from reception as well has popular Norwegian snacks, traditionally associated with outdoor activities like skiing and hiking. Staying here you will immerse yourself in Norwegian culture. The communal lounge and dining room date back to 1922 and are decorated in the traditional styles of rural Norway, while the remote location also means the hotel receives few international guest, further enhancing the local experience.

A Fair Deal:
We have established a long term partnership with our local operator who is committed to boosting rural economies through tourism. They work in partnership with our UK leader who are both committed to responsible tourism and helping to preserve the way of life in this area. The leaders will give a briefing on Responsible Tourism issues to help you understand how you can help reduce your impact and maximise the benefits to the local community from your visit.
