Skiing av Snow Cave trip
Join our ultimate winter trip and experience the best of the Norwegian winter wonderland;
a three days winter trip with cross country, mountain lodge and snow cave.
The first day of our trip we’ll be skiing with cross country skis to a mountain lodge in Sirdal/ Ryfylke, a two hour drive from Stavanger. After we’re lodged, we spend the rest of the evening with indoor or outdoor activities.
The second day you will experience to build your own snow cave which you will sleep inside the next night. When we’re done with the snow cave, it needs to be approved for safety reason. Rest of the day would be spent outside with activities, and preparing ourselves for a night in a snow cave.
Waking up in a snow cave is a wonderful experience, and makes you feel close to the nature in winter wonderland. After a good breakfast, we’ll start skiing back to civilization. Mostly with a smile, after the great achievement.
