Description

Join me for an 8-day ski touring trip in the incredible Lofoten Islands, in the North of Norway. This archipelago, inhabited since 800 AD, offers a landscape of steep mountains with sharp peaks rising from the North Sea, split by deep fjords, and scattered with picturesque and colourful fishermen villages.

Although located north of the Arctic Circle, the warm waters of the Gulf Stream provide pleasant temperatures, similar to the Alps. Each day we will explore a different fjord and enjoy amazing descents on the wild slopes of the Lofoten.

Each islet of the archipelago offers myriads of different runs, from wide slopes to rocky couloirs, through forests, finishing on beaches. Starting from sea level, the ascents range between 600 to 1200 m vertical drop.

This trip is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the warm welcome of the inhabitants of these beautiful islands. We will cross between the islands by boat while we admire the stunning landscapes of amazing peaks falling into the sea. Not to mention the lively bars of the village of Svolvær!

The program

We can meet in Oslo on Saturday night for dinner and overnight at the hotel. Or we can either meet on Sunday morning directly at Oslo Airport, for the flight that will take us to Svolvær.

We will spend 3 nights on Austvågøy, one of the biggest islands of the archipelago. The next 4 nights, we will stay in a comfortable lodge on an islet of the Vestfjord. On Monday morning, we return to Svolvær to take the flight back to Oslo.

It will be great 8 days of skiing, from Sunday morning to Sunday evening. We will enjoy a fantastic ski touring week along the protected fjords of the southeast coast.

At the beginning of the week, we will go on a Star Trek on the main summits of Austvågøy. Each morning, the Zodiac will take us to different fjords, with an elevation of 500 to 1000 m, that reduces the effort of the climb.

Please contact me if this ski destination is on your bucket list. Send me a request and we will start planning this unforgettable trip. It will be my pleasure to guide you there.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
