About the Trip:
Our weekend getaway packages are perfect for people living in European cities that wish to escape the noise and fast pace of city life. We organise everything for you from the time you step off the plane in Bergen.
What awaits is pristine Norwegian wilderness, an untouched winter wonderland. In town, we take the time to relax and have a beverage of your choice, while soaking it all in. We are a company that cares about the little things that make your trip unforgettable.
Mountain cross-country skiing or Fjellski is a fantastic form of transport during the winter, we ensure you become knowledgeable about the equipment, teach you how to use cross-country skis properly, teach you the technique to get you up and down the mountain in good fashion.
There is so much cross-country skiing here that with this trip, it barely scratches the surface. But we will give you an inspiring glimpse into our way of life and the views you can enjoy in good company.
