Description

Try out skiing on sparkling cold mid-winter snow or spring's very first snow crust, whilst we help you discover Abisko National Park. It is made clear that there are wild animals as our skis cross their tracks. We get a feeling for snow in varying terrain, surrounded by beautiful views.

We familiarize ourselves with ski gear and learn basic techniques before we start skiing. Newly learned skills are soon put to the test as we skate-ski up steep slopes, glide across frozen lakes and keep our balance skiing downhill. The guide points out some favorite spots and talks about the surroundings, Sami culture and wildlife as we ski back to the station.
