What can I say about his trip? I was a little apprehensive prior to he trip as I had read several reviews detailing how the bobsledding was quite rough on your body due to 5G and up to 120kph speeds, I needn't have worried, it was probably the most exhilarating activity I have ever taken part in! It is fast but as long as you have a reasonable level of fitness you'll just enjoy the ride. This is however only a small (if indeed the main) event in a fantastic weekend. The tobogganing was superb and the airboarding on Sunday morning was possibly my favourite, as you got to experience several runs from various heights - providing you could keep climbing the steps to get back up!!
Watching members of my group take the skeleton down the bob track. I have nothing but admiration for those who were brave enough, I sadly wasn't that brave but if you have the guts I think it is an opportunity not to be missed.
Bente was a fantastic leader. She was very knowledgeable about Lillehammer and the surrounding area and made the trip all the more memorable by ensuring the smooth running of all the activities.
Do not hesitate to book this trip. I would go on the trip again in an instant. If you think it may be dangerous don't worry, as long as you follow he instructions from all of the instructors and drivers you will be fine.
I would love to see a longer version of the trip. Lillehammer has all the facilities to take part in many other winter sports and I think a 5-6 day trip filled with bobsled, tobogganing, airboarding which the addition of downhill skiing, cross country skiing, curling, ice skating and husky trekking would be the most spectacular trip!
Bob sledging and tobogoning was brilliant. As this is the first time exodus has run this trip since 2008. I think that some thought needs to be done on filling up time from activities no longer included from 2008. As this was sold as an adrenalin filled weekend we found ourselfs sitting around a lot.
The bobsledging, Feeling the speed and the G force.
Very knowledgable about her town.
If you're planning on drinking, purchase from duty free on the way in. One beer = £10 a pint!!!!!!
This was a life long dream fulfilled, the best fun ever, I would do it again tomorrow, it is all that exodus say and more.
I suppose I expected the Bobsled to be 'toned down a bit for tourist', but not a bit, it was exaclty as it is in the olympics, and I was lucky enough to do it twice. The snowmobiles were great fun a full 2 hour guided run in woodland with crisp snow, everyone was really helpful and friendly and our Exodus guide was excellant, throughout. I am in my late 50's and loved every minute.
Our group leader was great, he was local, so had helpful local knowledge, friendly without being overbearing, had a great sense of humour, and was also a paramedic which was reasuring considering the activity we were doing.
Don't think your to old for this, just do it.
The best fun I have had in years, just waiting for that call from the olympic bobsled team!!!!! A very well organised trip.
