If you are looking for an amazing ski mountaineering experience in a unique off-the-beaten-path destination, I have the perfect plan for you. Join Matheo Jacquemoud, an IFMGA-certified guide and top ski mountaineering athlete, on this 7-day adventure and discover the spectacular slopes of the Lofoten islands, an archipelago in northern Norway, far above the Arctic Circle.

This unique wilderness location offers a rare combination of sharp peaks and deep fjords, making it a true skier’s paradise. Matheo really love skiing in Lofoten and will make sure you enjoy the best runs here. You will enjoy epic descents from the top of the mountains all the way down to the sea.

Our base during this week will be a comfortable lodge in the fishing village of Henningsvaert. We will have breakfast at the lodge every morning, a picnic lunch and dinner at a restaurant in the evening.

From Oslo we will fly to Narvik, where we will rent a car. Then we will have a 2-hour drive to Svolvaer, and from there we just have 25 minutes to our lodge.

In order to join this tour, you need to be in good shape and you must have previous ski mountaineering experience. Take into account that you will have about 1000 to 2000 meters of elevation gain every day. A maximum of 6 people are allowed on this trip.

Lofoten offers a truly unique skiing experience. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to discover this spectacular destination in northern Norway. Send me a request and book your trip! Matheo will be thrilled to guide you here.

What People are Saying about Caroline Freslon

 

Great experience, but definitely favored toward elite runners. One of our guides, JC, was amazing. He cared about every runner. The other guide seemed only to care for the elites (and himself). On top of Col des Montets, I asked if we had time to put on warm layers. The guide said \"of course,\" but then quickly proceeded to run off with the entire group while I stood bare and freezing with my gear unpacked. Total lack of consideration for the well-being of his runners. Otherwise a great tour.

Pour moi le trail c\'est avant tout la découverte de nouveaux territoires, les rencontres et les échanges avec d\'autres passionnés, le respect de la nature. Mes 3 stages avec Caroline m\'ont permis de retrouver ces fondamentaux dans un cadre toujours bon enfant, mais pas moins professionnel. Caroline est une passionnée de montagne et de tout ce qui y touche (sport, culture, gastronomie) et elle sait comme personne transmettre sa passion et ses bons conseils, toujours avec le sourire. Je garde un excellent souvenir des rencontres avec les autres stagiaires et mais aussi avec les autres encadrants, Guillaume, Seb, Cédric, Lydie et tant d\'autres rencontrés au cours de ces stages.

J\'ai fait deux stages avec Caro, c\'est devenu une amie, et chacun de ces stages m\'a laissé des souvenirs inoubliables. Le premier stage en 2014 en Haute Savoie à l\'occasion du Trail du Gypaète. Le Deuxième stage en 2015, dans les Calanques de Marseille. Ces stages auront été parfaits à tous les niveaux: Paysages grandioses (on sent qu\'ils ont été choisis avec soin), des échanges techniques avec des \"pros\" (un grand moment quand Caro inspecte les sacs à dos...), pleins de conseils nutrition - mode de vie etc... La découverte des autres stagiaires mais aussi des autres encadrants (très bon contact avec Guillaume Lenormand par ex.). Des conditions matérielles top (hébergement, repas, organisation etc...). Seule critique: le temps passe trop vite, c\'est toujours trop court! Donc au final quand c\'est fini, on n\'a qu\'une envie... c\'est de repartir pour un autre stage! Et vu le nombre de personnes que l\'on croise sur les stages qui en sont à leur n-ième participation, je peux affirmer que ce sentiment est partagé!
