- Fantastic variety of terrain
- Stunning remote scenery
- Unique accommodation
The island of Hovden is home to the Mosstrond Turisthytte, the perfect place to indulge your passion for cross-country skiing. Our setting is Lake Mosvatn, on the edge of the Hardangervidda National Park in a beautifully remote part of Norway. The terrain is unrivalled, and all on your doorstep. Setting out across the frozen lake we explore the majesty of the winter landscape, and have the chance to develop both confidence and skill whilst discovering new routes and trails every day. The skiing will be predominantly off track, as the location suggests, with the only tracks you are likely to see being those of elk or reindeer. The hospitality and local knowledge of your hosts Philip and Maiken Yatman will ensure you make the most of your week in this spectacular region.
What makes this trip responsible?
Our cross-country skiing holidays in general avoid large alpine ski areas, but on this trip, we are even further away from the winter resorts as we ski in an area that brings tourism to a very small community. Situated in the centre of a lake where road access is impossible during the winter, our base is a unique and characterful boarding school that was would not have benefitted from tourism if it was not for our small groups of just 12 travellers. Thanks to the limitless amount of trails available every day, there is no need to use any transport during the week so the only imprint on this pristine environment should be our cross-country ski tracks.
