Inspiring adventures
Hut to hut cross country skiing in Norway

Norway is one of the least densely populated countries of the world and has one of Europe’s larger marked hiking trail networks (20,000 km) and arguably the world’s most extensive cross-country skiing track networks (7000 km). There are 460 cabins in the hut networks across the country ranging from self catering to luxury private accommodation.

The Norway Trekking association was established 140 years ago and their website is a great resource for planning your Norwegian adventure with suggested hikes, waymarked ski routes  and guided tours.
