  • Explore the stunning Lofoten Islands, one of the most beautiful places on earth

  • Ski from summit to sea in the company of a local guide

  • Itineraries can be adapted to your level and that of your group


Ski touring in the Lofoten Islands is definitely an amazing experience! The mix of mountain, sea, ice, granite and snow make this Norwegian paradise one of the most unique ski destinations in the world. So why don’t you come and join one of the ski trips I run?

I live in Lofoten with my family and I also have my company here. I guide in the Lofoten backcountry from February, 1st till the end of May. Based in the fantastic Lofoten Ski Lodge, we have quick access to the terrain in Lofoten.

Here are the ski programs that I offer:

  • Ski touring trips for all levels of difficulty,
  • Avalanche courses,
  • Ski touring courses with base camp at our lodge.
  • Ski mountaineering courses,

But I’m not alone: I work with a group of certified guides. We all have a broad experience in many countries, as well as local knowledge to find the greatest powder snow on the Islands.

I can help you organise the trip of a lifetime! We can arrange a private guided ski itinerary according to the length of your stay. If you are travelling from abroad I suggest you plan a 5 to 7 day ski trip. That way, you’ll maximise your time in the area. Besides, you will have the opportunity to truly explore the terrain.

In addition, I can adapt trips to skiers of all capabilities, from first time ski tourers to professional skiers. Lofoten has a lot of skiing for all skill levels!

Please get in touch with me if you want to receive more information and discuss about a program. It will be my pleasure to guide you around the breathtaking Lofoten Islands. 

If you are alone and want to join a group, please send me a request through this page 6-day Lofoten ski touring trip (join a group); if you are looking for a private 6-day ski touring trip, please send me request through this page 6-day Lofoten ski touring private program.  I also organise other trips in Norway, like ice climbing and winter alpine climbing.

We will meet in Lofoten. To get to Lofoten, you can fly into Svolvær with SAS or fly to Evenes with Norwegian or SAS. The cheapest is to fly to Evenes but you'll have to drive for 2.5 hours to get to Lofoten. This is a beautiful drive so if you arrive in the daylight it's a plus.

Seth was an excellent guide with a wealth of knowledge and very interesting to chat to. I was nervous about the climb but felt incredibly safe under his instruction. The day was fantastic, I highly recommend it to anyone who can stomach the heights!
