April cross country skiing in Troms

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADepending on snow conditions, you still may have a possibility to cross country ski. We have plenty of snow here at the moment and we hope it will stay here for some time.

Tromsø covered in snow is so beautiful. We have a rich ski trails network on the island with the main Lysløype lit up until midnight. Trails on the top of Tromsøya are good for sunbathing in warm April sun, while on the other side of the straits, in Tromsdalen, you can ski hidden from strong Arctic winds. For more advanced skiers Kvaløya is a great choice and the ones looking for mountain adventure can try to ski all over the trail from Snarbyeidet to Tromsdalen.

If you want to learn basics of cross country skiing, our afternoon cross country skiing trip for beginners is a great choice.
