(Nordic Walking, Rollerskiing and Cross-country Skiing clothing and equipment suppliers)
(page down for 'Partners')

There is a wide range of clothing and equipment available from leading, quality international suppliers. Whilst I do not supply products directly to customers, listed below is a personally recommended selection of high quality and reliable suppliers, and links to their websites where you can buy online/source local retailers.

Dependent upon your budget, or fashion desires, please remember that better quality products will not only last longer, they will enhance your exercise and therefore enjoyment of Nordic Fitness sports. For Cross-country Skiing, you need the following clothing: jacket (non-Alpine skiing), pants (non-Alpine), thermal underwear (top & bottoms), gloves (non-Alpine) and hat.

Ski School Sjusjoen – This 68 page book is about removing the mysteries that seem to surround Cross-country Skiing in the minds of people from milder climates. Questions like: Would it suit me?
