Short Version
Cross country skiing is the national sport in both Sweden and Norway for a reason. It is fun allright. But people need to understand that this is peace of mind. You take one step at the time, glide on the snow. Following the movement is like meditation, you forget the rest of the world. Maybe the sun will shine on your smiling face. You need to explore it. Then you will understand.

What to bring on this excursion
Clothing during skiing: It’s an active excursion so don’t dress too warm, but bring an extra layer for when standing still! It’s best to have clothing that dries up quickly, so avoid cotton if possible! Wool and polyester (often seen in sport specific clothing) are best. Dressing in many layers is recommended over having one thick layer. This provides better insulation and it’s easier to take off one layer when you’re too warm. See list:

Awesome Experience - A must do!
I had always wanted to try cross country skiing and stumbled across Green Trails online. Incredibly happy that I did, it was a great experience and I'm pretty sure next time I am back in Stockholm I will have to do one of their other activities, Nordic Ice skating in particular looks incredible. Thank you very much!
Fantastic experience cross country skiing - highly recommend!
Very well planned, great guide - Pieter, absolutely stunning views and the skiing was really easy to pick up quickly. Definitely a day to remember.
