Located in the charming valley of Salazar (Navarra) and very close to the well-known Irati forest, is the Abodi cross-country ski resort.

This Nordic skiing paradise has about 22km of ski slopes and is also part of the Nordic 6, a large space consisting of six cross-country ski centers in Navarra, Aragon and France.
Kvaløya Island, Tromsø (Norway)
There is a place in the confines of Europe where skiers come to experience strong emotions. In Norwegian Lapland, beyond the Arctic Circle, is Tromsø. Nearby there is a very succulent destination for lovers of trips to snow and mountain skiing: the island of Kvaløya.
This island is immersed in a paradise of fjords where you can ski with direct views of the sea, the great Norwegian water valleys. Getting from Tromso to Kvaløya is easy, 25 minutes by car is enough, although a good option is also to stay at Kvaløya itself.
