We start skiing as soon as the snow is on the mountains, and up until the snow falls ends! This is usually between the start of Dec to the end of April. It’s all depending on Mother Nature!
An explicit list of what to bring will be sent out to travelers before the tour. In most cases, it includes a recommended clothing and gear lists like:
- Ski jacket and pants, hardshell, gloves, hat, hiking boots
- Woolen underlayers and socks
- Snacks & water
- Skin protection against cold
We recommend that all of our guests be in good physical health.
If you have a medical issue but you still want to go skiing, we always recommend you check with your doctor first.
Inquiry with us if you have further questions.

Tip is not a regular thing in Norway as it’s in USA. Your guide works hard to ensure that you have a fun, yet safe skiing adventure and always committed to the Outdoor Norway high standard guided tour.
Tip is widely accepted as the industry norm; and tipping is always appreciated but never expected. It stays totally at your own discretion.
