Developing Cross-Country Skiing in Iceland

Under the banner of the FIS Solidarity programme, the Icelandic Ski Association hosted a successful summer training camp for cross-country skiers from 8th-11th June 2017. The initiative aimed at bringing athletes aged 12 years and older together for a fun and effective training camp on roller skis.

25 girls and boys from all over the country participated in the camp which included the presence of the national cross-country team and offered the talented youngsters the opportunity to train alongside the country’s best athletes. The training sessions were organised by the national team coach and club coaches from all over Iceland had the opportunity to work with him and learn new training methods.

The training sessions took place in Reykjavík, the capital city of Iceland, and at Bláfjöll, the local ski area.
