Experience the best of the Rondane National Park during this winter week program. Stay in a cosy hotel room or comfortable log cabin at Rondane River Lodge and enjoy activity packed days in the Norwegian mountains. The package includes a dogsled safari, avalanche course, a backcountry skiing introduction and a 2-days snowshoe or backcountry expedition with overnight in a remote mountain cabin.
The hosts welcome you at Rondane River Lodge and inform you about the week program. For sure you will be charmed instantly by the cosy lodge and the snowy forest around. Relax in your comfortable hotel room or log cabin and enjoy a home-made 3 courses welcome dinner in the restaurant.
After a tasty breakfast you will be transferred to 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 15km dogsled safari through snow covered forests and crossing several frozen lakes. A tasty lunch will be served halfway in a traditional hunters cabin. This is an experience to be remembered for a lifetime!
Always dreamed about skiing the powder outside the slopes and want to feel confident? Get yourself familiar with beacon, probe and shovel during an avalanche course. The afternoon can be spent at one of the frozen lakes around Rondane River Lodge. Indulge yourself in another favourite outdoor activity for Norwegians: ice fishing. Try your luck and bring your catch back to the lodge where it can be prepared by the lady of the house. Some energy left? Enjoy some tobogganing from the hill on the opposite side of the road. Fun guaranteed for young and old.
Rondane National Park has unlimited possibilities for cross country skiing. During this introduction course you leave the groomed trails and conquer the powder snow with specially adapted backcountry ski’s. These are a bit wider and the technique is surprisingly easy. A professional guide teaches you how to handle the ski’s 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! Put on the stove in your cabin upon return or relax with a drink next to the open fire in the lounge.
Days 5 & 6:
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.
Time to say goodbye to the Norwegian mountains.
