Once you arrive at Trondheim Airport (TRD), our guides will pick you up (must arrive before 16:00) and drive 45 min to the village of Meraker which is considered the world's capital of cross country skiing where you’ll check in and take a breather. Our team will brief you on the upcoming few days of your journey, after which you get to indulge in a little taste of Norway by having dinner at the hotel.
Today we will have breakfast at 8:00am, start packing our stuff and head off with our skiis into the wilderness having lunch mid way. We usually ski only 3-5km the first day to reach the camp not too tired. This day, we will go through every detail on how to put up your expedition tent and prepare for a comfortable night outdoors. By the end of this day you will have learnt: • How to put up and secure your tent in the worst weather conditions • How to organize your tent for safety and comfort • How to light and repair a stove, melt snow for water, food/nutrition and sleeping systems • You will be encouraged to be responsible and self-going with the camping routines for the rest of the trip Usually on day 2 we will have some time in the evening for a night skiing trip with headlamps or even making a bone fire in the woods to share stories and experiences.
We wake up early today and have breakfast in out tents then start packing the campsite back on our sleds. This day we will do a longer skiing tour (around 10-20km) with our sleds to our next camp site. This afternoon you will hone your skills in putting up the tent, organizing your stuff and preparing for yet a comfortable night outdoors. Today you will realize how much you`ve already learned and that things are starting to be more natural and easy. You feel safe and more comfortable and your routines are done with a lot more self confidence and efficiency.
Wake up at 7:30 today and have breakfast in tents after which we pack all our equipment in our sleds. This day we will do a longer skiing loop with our sleds back to where we started. Today we will improve our skiing technique and feel at home with the routines of 50min of skiing/10 min breaks just as we do on expeditions. You will enjoy skiing through the stunning landscape but also looking forward to the short breaks of hot chocolate, water and snacks. In the afternoon we`ll come back to the lodge, unpack out sleds and put our equipment set out to dry. After a warm and well deserved shower we`ll chill out and debrief over a cold soda/beer and celebrate the course over a very nice meal.
We wake up for a hearty breakfast at our cozy lodge as we debrief our past couple of days and go over the lovely memories and all what we have learnt. We will then pack our stuff, check out of the lodge and take a 45 min ride back to Troneheim airport. Your flight out from Trondheim Airport (TRD) should be after 13:00
