CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING: KVITAVATN

Just back from a fantastic trip. I'd not been cross country skiing before and found the variety of this trip exceeded my expectations. Although the accommodation is described as basic as it is a youth hostel, it was very comfortable, warm and clean. The food was consistently excellent and plentiful with a hot 3 course dinnner every evening, being just what was needed after a day out in the cold.

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.

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.

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.

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.
