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,
