CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: KVITAVATN

The balance was just right between active days that always encouraged you to push your skills a bit further and very comfortable and sociable evenings

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: KVITAVATN

An exceptional trip with inspirational instruction....even for a rank beginner with no skiing experience at all.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: KVITAVATN

Best bits: the guides were fantastic, especially Ilsa who was a brilliant teacher and so obviously skilled on skis.  They were so friendly and helpful.  Food brilliant and plentiful.  Company great, so friendly.  Accommodation warm.  Great drying room.  Great sauna (prepare yourself for a nudist experience).  Scenery beautiful.  Friendly accommodation hosts - they allowed you to put your own alcohol in the hostel fridge.  Perfect 1st cross country ski trip and perfect way to spend a Christmas. Not so best bits:  showers poor; tepid temperature and poor water flow.  Plus you had to keep pressing the button to keep the shower on and the water flowed for only 15 seconds!!  The communal sitting area, whilst warm was not really very cosy.  The fire was lovely, but could only accommode about 8 people sitting around it.  A real shame that the ambience wasn't as cosy as it could have been.  Some nice rugs and sofas would make all the difference.  Bunk rooms small.  The holiday information could do a bit more to ensure travellers realise the basic nature of the accommodation and that it is, in fact, a youth hostel.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: KVITAVATN

Both the track and off-track skiing were excellent. This was certainly helped by the amount of snow, but the terrain was always good because it was challenging. The main leader and instructor (Ilse) was excellent - patient, attentive and always helpful.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: KVITAVATN

This was an excellent holiday, accommodation was good, food was excellent, teaching, terrain and company all siperb.  The staff are very friendly the instructors Chris and Ilse are very experienced in XC skiing and taught us well and went the extra mile to making sure we had fuind and learnt XC skiing at the same time.  With additional stretching after a hard day, in the mountians or on the recognised routes and XC lessons in the evening.The scenery and history is tremendous and this brief glimpse of Norway that will have me coming back for more.Will definitely be back.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: KVITAVATN

Due to the lack of snow at the end of the season, the advertised corss-country skiing turned into a winter walking holiday.  Whilst the company was very pleasant, this was a far cry from the winter activity holiday that everyone had expected.

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: KVITAVATN

A  holiday that was physiclly challenging but not so much that it was too much.I liked the idea of being ''offroad' most of the time. The trip leaders were excellent, empathetic, and flexible. Highlight was summiting out on a gloriously clear day

It was wonderful to be back at Kvitavatn again.  I felt the location was better than ever with really good facilities at the Fjellstoge and superb food and kindness.  Mary and Ilse are the best instructors ever and make every day a positive experience.  You finish on a high (literally!).
