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.
