Description

Skiing in Norway is something that anyone who loves skiing should do at least once! With incredible snow and outstanding views, this country is perfect for this winter activity. On this occasion, I invite you to join me for a  ski touring week in Lofoten.

Lofoten is an archipelago of islands in the western coast of Norway that covers 1,226 square kilometers. Its most important islands are Moskenesoya, Flakstadoya, Vestvagoya, Gimsoya and Austvagoya. It is a famous spot for activities such as fishing, skiing, climbing, watching the Northern Lights and much more!

For this adventure, I’ll take you skiing to the exciting vertical routes that abound in Lofoten. The mountains and snow are as impressive as those in the famous European Alps.

The weather in the northern region of the country is not as cold as countries in the same latitude as Greenland or Alaska, but it can be chilly year-round. Therefore, make sure to review the list of equipment detailed below. If you don’t have everything, we can help you rent whatever you are missing.

Are you ready for an exciting skiing adventure in Norway? Then send your message and let me organize an unforgettable week for you!

This trip must be booked at least one month prior to the requested departure date.

If you are looking for more trips in Norway, follow me to the Lyngen Alps or Senja!

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm an AEGM-certified mountain guide from Spain.

My work and my passion for the mountains have taken me all over the world.

I spent 8 years leaving in my van as a ski bum in La Grave, in the French Alps, enjoying the steep skiing there.

I also spent 5 years guiding ski touring, alpine climbing and rock climbing in Norway (Lofoten, Senja, Lyngen Alps, Kvaløya, Stetind), where you can feel the power of nature like in very few other places on Earth!

But it was in the Spanish Pyrennes, my own backyard, where I grew as a mountainer and skier. Here, you can enjoy some tapas and a good wine after a crazy heliski day!

You are very welcome to contact me to enjoy an amazing trip or adventure in the mountains!
