Locations and Accommodation – a brief summary

Our Wadahl/Cross-Country (track) Skiing Skills holidays and Telemark Skiing Course are all based on the Wadahl Hotel, Gålå (full board) high in the mountains of Gudbrandsdalen, 80 km north of Lillehammer. Whilst boasting some of the best cross-country skiing in Norway, the added attractions of its own alpine slopes, race training, dog sledding and a nerve-tingling toboggan run, are all helping to turn Gålå into a popular destination for a wide cross-section of skiers of all ages and nationalities. Gålå was also the venue for the second phase of the 2014 Norwegian national cross-country championships.
