Skating - Norway's new winter activity

(2-3 hours + possible transport) - 995, - per person (min 4 people)

Vansjø is just as nice in summer as in winter. An eldorado for the outdoorsman. On snow-poor, cold winters, this is a favorite place for touring skaters. This is an activity with a strong focus on safety, and an activity that can only be done when the ice is good enough. The reward is a fantastic and unique nature experience with locally known guides / instructors. Here you get the good stories, the background for old place names and Vansjø's history. Stop along the way with a campfire and real old-fashioned campfire coffee. You should have some experience on skates, and you must bring your own ski shoes / boots with either NNN or BC binding (Regular cross-country bindings) and a complete change of clothes. Own transport to the meeting place (The ice decides where we start).

The price includes two locally known guides / instructors, a backpack, helmet, skates, poles, cast line and ice spikes.
