Having selected a morning or afternoon excursion, meet your guide at the central Tromso meeting point at the designated time. From there, travel to the lesson site just outside the city.

Upon arrival, listen as your guide offers an introduction and then practice walking slowly with your skis. When confident, begin skiing over flat terrain.

Continue practicing and, if you've built up your confidence, tackle some small hills. With a maximum group size of 10 people, your guide is always available to assist.

After the short journey back to Tromso, your tour concludes with a drop-off back at the departure point.
