    This Narvik ski touring week is ski touring the way it should be! Indeed, if you’re looking to experience genuine mountain culture in the middle of Scandinavia’s best ski touring area, this is the program for you!

    We will be staying at Trollviken Lodge by the Ofotfjord in Norway. My partner and I own and operate it.

    From the lodge, hundreds of amazing ski touring summits are within reach. We’ll ski down some amazing slopes that run all the way down to the sea. Furthermore, you won’t find the crowds of neighbouring areas like Lofoten or Lyngen! Thus, it will be your own private paradise!

    From the lodge, we’ll discover a different summit every day. In the evening, we’ll go for a sauna and also a swim in the fjord right before dinner. Then, we enjoy a good meal and sleep comfortably to the waves’ smooth rhythm. On the other side of the fjord, we’ll appreciate the Narvik lights reflecting on the water.

    The lodge is strategically located on the north side of Ofotfjord. It is only 30 minutes from Evenes (Narvik Airport).

    Join me on this incredible Narvik ski touring week. It is an experience no ski touring fan should miss out on. So contact me now!

    Itinerary

     
    • Day 1Arrival

      Arrival day. We pick you up at the airport. The easiest is to fly to Evenes airport (also called Harstad / Narvik Airport).Drive to Trollviken in half an hour. We go through the equipment, talk about avalanche safety and do some avalanche training.

    • Day 2Spanstind

      Drive to our “home mountain” Spanstind. I has a great view of the fjord from the summit and offers many opportunities to ski down. Spanstind is 1,460 meters above sea level. We ‘ll be home in time for a sauna before dinner.

    • Day 3Tjeldsundet

      We drive a little further out towards Tjeldsundet and climb Strandtinden. Wonderful views out to the Vest Fjord and really good snow.

    • Day 4Rombackstötta

      This day is more challenging. Today we go to Rombackstötta across the fjord. The skiing down is often on fine powder.

      Climbing and skiing at one of our favorite spots: in Gratangen. We start in the nice village Foldvik and climb up Nonsfjellet.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I have climbed and skied all my life but started working as a guide in 2009. I became a fully-qualified IFMGA guide in 2012. I'm based in Herjangen (just north of Narvik in Ofoten, Nordland, Norway) and have been skiing in this area for over two decades. I guide all over the world but prefer to be home in Trollviken! My goal is to share my knowledge and my love for these mountains to increase your skills. I used to be an investment banking executive but I'm a lot better now!
