Always dreamed about exploring the untouched powder outside the slopes but need some more confidence? Get yourself familiar with beacon, probe and shovel during a backcountry introduction with avalanche course. Backcountry ski’s are a bit wider and the technique is surprisingly easy. The guide teaches you how to handle the ski’s/skins and sets the destination of the day depending on the weather conditions and abilities of the group. For sure you will get the hang of it soon! Why not top off this day by relaxing in our outdoor wood-fired sauna and hot-tub?
The iconic musk ox has its natural habitat in Dovrefjell National Park which is easily accessible from Hjerkinn, about a one hour drive from Rondane River Lodge. Accommpanied by a knowledgeable guide and a sturdy pair of snowshoes, we traverse the snowy plains in search of this curious creature. There are good opportunities to spot also grouse, arctic fox and maybe even a flock of wild reindeer.
Days 4 & 5:
Prepare yourself for a 2-days expedition with snowshoes or backcountry ski’s (preference to be indicated when booking). Take only what’s essential and be ready to carry some food and common stuff as well. Then you set-off for an expedition straight through the Rondane National Park to a remote mountain cabin. The standard is quite simple (shared rooms and limited sanitary facilities) but you will definitely enjoy the authentic feeling. Everyone helps with heating the cabin and preparing the meals. After breakfast you return to Rondane River Lodge.
At the dogyard where you will be welcomed energetically by your furry friends. After some basic instructions on how to handle the sled(dogs), you set-off for a dogsled safari through snow covered forests and into the mountains. This is an experience to be remembered for a lifetime!
Tasty breakfast at the lodge restaurant and time to say goodbye to the Norwegian mountains.
