About The Event
Norway winter multi-activity week
This program incorporates a mix of ice climbing for a day when you will learn how to put on and use crampons and wield an ice axe, dog sledding for a day and of course along with a partner you will command your very own team of dogs, then there is the main event of cross country skiing training for 2 days and sleeping in an igloo for one night near a mountain hut (just in case we want respite). The week begins with skiing training over two days when you will learn the basic skiing and emergency techniques necessary to equip you with the skills to get you through a two day one night ski tour to your overnight igloo destination just 12 km from our lodge accommodation. During your training you'll learn and practice how to build an emergency snow shelter equipped with just your skis and a shovel, recognize avalanche conditions in a safe environment and be given presentations most evenings on mountain safety and techniques on winter survival.
On returning to your cabin next day at the lodge, you will be preparing for your dog sledding trip with your partner through the forest in Heroes of Telemark country, commanding your very own team of six dogs, stopping for a lunch of stew and hot chocolate in a teepee, whilst your furry friends eagerly await your return to the sled for the second half of the journey. At the end, you'll de rig the dogs, give them a final hug and we are off back to the hotel for tea.
