Description

One of the most exotic skiing destinations we can find in Norway are the Lofoten Islands: amazing sunsets, magical aurora borealis, skiing to the very edge of the sea, incredible fjords and majestic mountains that rise from sea level!

My invitation is to discover this magical place by skiing the different amazing peaks that can be found here. In terms of technical difficulty and depending on participants’ wishes,  we will choose which mountains to ski every day: Varden (700 mt), Stortind (731 mt), Rundfjellet (803 mt), Torksmannen (755mt), Breitind (672 mt), Kistbergtind (661 mt), Trosadelen (996 mt), … and more!

Every morning we will have breakfast at 8:30 and leave in our vehicle to the chosen area for that day. We will start ascending at less than 100 meters of altitude, in many cases a few meters from the shore of some fjords and always with the sea in the background!

We will meet at the Oslo airport. Once we arrive to the Lofoten Islands, participants will get transported to the beautiful town of  Henningsvaer to the comfortable fishing huts where we will be staying all week. After a long day of ski, nothing better than to rest and enjoy the typical Norwegian food made by the hands of a local chef!

If you like, one day we can rent some kayaks and go for a ride in the company of a local guide. And, if you are interested, during our week there will be different workshops of laps, foraging techniques, rowing and more!

So if you are ready for this amazing trip in the Lofoten Islands, request to book this trip!

Itinerary

Day 1: Meeting point in Oslo airport

– Meeting at the airport in Oslo, we check in luggage and pick up the vehicle and go to Henningsvaer where we will stay in beautiful cabins near the port. This will be our base camp throughout the week.
– Breaffing of what will be the week, the expected weather and conditions.
– Preparation for the next day’s departure.

Day 2 to 6: Skiing in the different amazing peaks of the Lofoten Islands!

These days will all have a similar operation, breakfast at 8.30, leave to the chosen area and be back at 5:00 pm.

We will choose ascents depending on the weather conditions. There we have more than twenty mountains less than an hour’s drive, all of them with slopes of less than 1000 meters, so we can make different combinations and peaks each day depending on our wishes.

In all of them there is a curious factor in common, we will start the activity at less than 100 meters of altitude and in many cases a few meters from the shore of some fjords, and always with the sea in the background!

Day 7: Last day!

– The logistics of this last day will depend on the flight schedules to Oslo.
