Join us for a skiing holiday to explore this last frontier of culture, nature and more.

Our 9-day road trip starts in Bergen, otherwise known as the Gateway to the Fjords. From here we travel through the spectacular landscapes of Western Norway – a varying nature that combines scenic farmland, vast plateaus, towering mountains and crystal clear rivers.

FAQ

When does your season start and end?

We begin skiing once the snow blankets the mountains, and we keep at it until the snow tapers off! Typically, this spans from early December to late April, but it's entirely up to Mother Nature!

What should I bring with me for a ski tour?

Before your activity, you will receive a detailed list of recommended items to bring, including appropriate clothing and gear for the activity. This typically encompasses recommended clothing and gear such as:

Ski jacket and pants, hardshell, gloves, hat, hiking boots
Woolen underlayers and socks
Backpack
Snacks & water
Skin protection against cold

Do I need to be physically fit to go skiing?

We suggest that all our guests have good physical health for skiing activities.

If you have any medical concerns but still wish to go skiing, we advise consulting with your doctor beforehand for your safety. Remember to always ski according to your own skill and fitness level.

Do any of the skiing trips cater to seniors?

Our winter tours have no maximum age limit; as long as you're physically fit, and you are enthusiastic, you're welcome to join!

Can I bring my own gear, such as skis or a helmet?

Yes, but only if they have a touring binding that enables releasing the heel for uphill hiking using skins.

Will using a split-board affect performance?

No, in powder, most riders don't experience a performance drop compared to a solid board. However, on hard, icy snow, there's certainly a noticeable difference.

Is this tour suitable for snowboarders?

Yes, it is!

You'll need to hike uphill using snowshoes and carry the board on your backpack with sturdy straps and attachment points.

We highly recommend split-snowboards as they're much more efficient for the ascent.

Should I tip my guide?

Tipping isn't customary in Norway, as it is e.g. in the USA. Our guides put in considerable effort to ensure your experience is both enjoyable and safe, maintaining the high standards set by Outdoor Norway.

While tipping is recognized as a standard practice in the industry and is always welcomed, it's never an obligation. It's entirely up to your discretion whether you choose to leave a tip. Your appreciation for the service provided is greatly valued either way.

Do I need to sign a waiver?

Yes.

Upon joining any activity, a waiver acknowledging risks must be read and signed. For minors, a parent or guardian is required to sign the waiver.
