The Kvitavatn Fjellstoge is a comfortable mountain lodge comprising a number of traditional-style buildings in a little hamlet.
The main building has a lounge and large dining room offering fantastic views of Gausta, as well as free Wi-Fi and a public computer for internet access.
The standard accommodation is in good quality 3 or 4 bunk rooms with washbasin, located in a separate building, known as Arne's House, 30m away.
The shower, sauna, toilets and drying room are shared.There are a small number of 2 bunk rooms available on request, for a supplement, and stylish twin bedded rooms with private facilities (supplement payable) in an adjacent building, known locally as Odd\'s House.
All meals included.
Five days of gentle walking on snowshoes at a relaxed pace, from a comfortable base with good facilities.
Sometimes our routes keep to the shelter of the birch and spruce trees, occasionally crossing frozen lakes and climbing low fells, making our own tracks across the snow. We include one free day for extra self-guided snowshoeing, optional downhill skiing or cross-country skiing.
Walking Conditions/Activity Details
Grade: A/B Your safety
Low level snowshoeing
Normal group size and age
Min. 5, max. 14 Minimum age 16.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Relatively full days, with 3-4 hours of physical activity, although occasional longer or harder days may be involved. Previous experience is not necessary, but you should be confident of your fitness level.
Walking & Trekking: Trips are wholly trekking-focused or simply include a significant number of walking days during the itinerary.
Winter Activities: It's about seeking out alternative ways to have fun in unspoilt locations, you won't find standard skiing or snowboarding breaks here.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
