Join me on this fun and adventurous week of ski touring in Bergsfjord, Norway, and we will experience some of the most peaceful, unlimited and epic freeride skiing imaginable, as we navigate the gentle and wide slopes full of fresh snow and tackle the multitude of peaks around us, all while taking in the gorgeous views of the tranquil water and majestic fjords that dot the area.

Bergsfjord is located in the far North of Norway, above the Arctic Circle, and is a relatively sleepy and cosy place, only being accessible by ferry and with approximately 70 full-time inhabitants. The remote, secluded nature of the place means the opportunities for freeride skiing are almost limitless, with ideal conditions par for the course.

We will meet on the first morning at Zurich Airport in Switzerland, and from here we will fly to Alta, Norway via Oslo, before continuing on to Oksfjord and then finally catching the ferry to Bergsfjord, arriving at our lodge accommodation for the week in the evening.

The subsequent 6 days are absolute freeride skiing heaven, as we awake each morning and head out all day every day to wherever we want. It is hard to overstate how good the snow and conditions are here, and the paucity of crowds ensures it will feel like we have the whole area to ourselves.

The peaks we encounter range from 700-1200m high, and it is a veritable playground of fantastic runs.

The world famous fjords provide a stunning backdrop to proceedings, as they tower over the icy cold water of the Atlantic Ocean, meaning you will constantly be reaching for your camera.

For rest and relaxation after a long day, there is even a hot tub provided at our lodge!

We finish on the 8th day by heading back to Zurich, the memories of this thrilling week fresh in our minds and our love for Bergsfjord having grown exponentially.

This enjoyable week of ski touring and freeride skiing is a truly special and amazing trip – book now so you don’t miss out!
