Description

An incredible TRIP between the mountains and the sea. Join me on this amazing ski touring experience in the Lofoten Islands in Norway!

The Lofoten is an archipelago in the Nordland province of Norway. It's well known for its wild natural beauty, with stunning peaks and beautiful beaches.

During these days, we will stay in a Rorbu, a traditional former fishermen's cottage, really comfortable and warm.  Besides, there is a great skiing atmosphere in the Lofoten Islands, between the mountains and the sea, with exciting ski touring spots.

I propose an 8-day ski touring program to enjoy the best ski runs, choosing every day the best spot according to snow and weather conditions.

This trip is really amazing, combining beautiful landscapes with granite walls into the sea and amazing snowy peaks. It's also a great opportunity to traverse on your skis the wild scenery of the Norwegian winter. All of these make these islands one of the most spectacular and unique ski destinations in the world.

If you want to join this trip you must have prior experience skiing in  varied terrain as well as knowledge about ski touring techniques, even on glaciated terrain. Also, you must be in good physical shape, as to make some short climbs.

We will have an altitude gain of about 800 to 1000 m a day. Depending on the peaks  we choose to climb, I will often propose a second trip during the day. If you are tired, you will be able to rest then, otherwise you can keep on skiing. As for your day pack, you just need a light bag to take the day picnic, some snacks and your safety equipment.

You will find bellow the next departure dates.  However, you can ask me to organise the same program on different dates, in case you can't attend the following.

So don't hesitate to contact me if you want to join me on this fascinating ski touring adventure. I will be glad to be your guide in this trip and help you discover such a beautiful place! 

I also guide other great ski touring trips in countries like France, Italy, Switzerland, and..also in Iran! You should check them out,

The Guide did not even know I'am on splitboard. Everyone else was on skis, I was the only one on board. Guide has no experience on board, so the daily trips was designed for skiers, not borders. I would like to know which company is responsible putting me in a ski group, Azimut or Explore-Share? If you don't know the difference between what is doable with skis and splitboards, you would not sell trips for splitboarders! In the only day I could enjoy somehow, I did very hard time to stay on my feet on icy steeps, because I should have had a crampon, but I did not have it, because the list of necessary equipment does not mention it. All the skiers had one. The guide anyway did what he could to help me, all the respect for Rafael. But the whole trip was a fuckup for me that way. I really want to know who is responsible!?

the trip did not correspond program description which forced me to leave on the second day, with huge financial losses. the guide checked and confirmed ny capabilities to ski - indeed after it was failed off road asked me to make a decission to give up. When I asked the agency to organize a transfer at least back to the meeting point (from the middle of nowhere) they pretended they can't do it (indeed, it was included to the program...) the worst every trip in my life. And explore and share instead of any invistigation simply did not care.

Had a great trip. Unfortunately the guide was not fluent in English as written in the description. That is something that could lead to a very tricky situation if there would‚Äėve been a dangerous situation. The selection of the group by azimut was not the best as at least one person was physically not capable of doing this trip. However, the service by explore-share was great!
