Jan, Feb, Mar, May
Narvik is notorious for its wide array of ski terrain and accessibility throughout Scandinavia. It served as a crucial northern port over the course of time, a key player in Swedish iron ore extraction in the 19th and 20th centuries. Now it provides a hub and jumping-off point for amazing adventures into the surrounding countryside, which extends from the northern Norwegian coast all the way into Swedish Lapland.
The landscape is a playground for backcountry skiers and ski tour aficionados, with glacier traverses, wide open slopes, tree-lined runs, and exhilarating high ridges. The remote location and relatively low population mean untouched snow for ski pioneers who want an experience unlike any other in the world.
This is where you come in! On this outstanding five-day ski touring program, you will immerse yourself in Narvik’s snow culture. The regional resorts have hosted major events and competitions. The landscape includes moderate altitude objectives within 1,000- to 2,000-meter mountains of the Scandinavian Range. If you are a seasoned veteran looking for the ultimate challenge, the plateaus of Sweden’s inland mountains aren’t too far away, either.
The program is centered around the Narvik Mounatin Lodge. The accommodating chalet allows you to ski in and out into whatever adventure you want to get yourself into for the day. We can enjoy the remarkable fjords iconic of Norway, deep valleys, meandering rivers, impressive waterfalls, and so much more! With five days to cover, we can experience every inch of life-changing snow the region has to offer.
You should have a high fitness level and be a proficient skier for this program. I am dedicated to providing a safe and fulfilling ski environment for all participants. I want to instill the passion that I have for this Arctic wonderland on all who experience it with me. You will remember this program long after you leave Narvik.
Stop waiting and start BOOKING this incredible ski touring program and spend five days learning why Norway is one of the best places for high quality skiing in the world!
If time is of the essence, we can cut this trip down to a three-day program in the same delightful terrain of Narvik!

I was born and raised in the town of Narvik in northern Norway. As the case has been with generations of norwegians, my parents took me with them on trips into nature and up on the mountains even before I was able to walk by myself. When I was able to stand up, my father bought me my first pair of slalom skis and we went skiing in the slopes on the local resorts. From there, the love of nature and the mountains has continuously grown and eventually evolved into a wish to bring others and let them experience and explore together with me.
Today nature and the mountains are my "office", where I work all year round with guiding, as an instructor and tutor on different courses and as an observer for the avalanche forecasting service. Over the years I have worked and guided all over Norway, but it is the north that is home and here I spent most of my time. So come with me into nature and up on the mountains and explore the wild nature of northern Norway. Skitours in Narvik and Lyngen or climbs to Norway's national mountain of Stetind are just some of the adventures I can offer you, but the mountains up here in the north are almost limitless in abundance and possibilities.

I completely missed this trip by one month due to my fault but exacerbated by your booking system. I must have filled in the booking form about 10 times before the dates were 'correct' and I was not being charged for more than one day. Every time I tried to make changes, the form refreshed and all the details had to be filled in again. These sorts of trips/events are not like booking train tickets. Most include a window of opportunity that is heavily influenced by weather events. Your communication flow requires a booking to be made and paid before there is any connection with the guide or discussion about suitable days etc. I realise that your company is a booking agency that is concerned about introducing two parties but missing out on the management fee however I feel the system requires a more nuanced approach.

As Marius and I discovered, Svolvaergeita is currently off limits to climbing until the approach has been restored. Not sure when people will be able to access the mountain again but Marius and I are looking at other possible climbing options next week in Narvik. Jim

My sister and I did a day of ski touring in Narvik with Marius. It was such a great day. We left he Gratangen hotel at 9am and returned at 4pm. The mountain was only 15min from the hotel and was the perfect one day adventure. The snow quality was awesome, it was good weather and we had the entire mountain to ourselves. Marius tailored the trip to our ski level perfectly and was very patient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend guided ski touring in Narvik with Marius!! :)
Fantastic and experienced guide! We highly recommend Marius and the area of Narvik!
