Lofoten Islands: The best touring skiing spots between sea and mountains

TheLofoten Islands archipelago is located in the north-west of Norway. It stretches from the mainland into the Arctic Ocean, covering an area of about 1,200 km2 (460 square miles). The highest peak is Hivravstinden at 1,146 m. The landscape is quite typical: steep mountains plunging into Arctic fjords forming intimate bays with narrow coastal strips where roads and villages cluster.

During this ski trip you will be staying in a comfortable 3-star hotel, in rorbuer, the colourful fishermen's huts characteristic of Lofoten. In response to the development of tourism, traditional dwellings have been fitted out with all mod cons. After your touring skiing days, in the heart of the majestic fjords, you can admire the exceptional spectacle of the twilight and the Northern Lights, to whale song. An unforgettable journey, simply magical!

This touring skiing holiday in the Lofoten Islands is open to backcountry skiers of intermediate to expert level, in good physical shape. It is organised around daily touring ski outings. These start at the coastline and take you on relatively easy climbs of 3 to 5 hours walking per day and typical vertical descents of 600 m to 1000 m on the slopes.

Once on the ridges, where the views are breathtaking, we can descend by backcountry skiing, both on tricky corridors and gentler slopes through forests, down to the seashore. The itineraries are chosen each morning according to the weather, the amount of sea ice, the snow conditions and your wishes.


We have a private minibus at our disposal for the duration of the trip. Thus, we are free to decide on the starting and finishing points of the routes. The main islands of the archipelago are all connected by a network of bridges and tunnels. As an option and depending on the conditions, we can organise one or more days of touring skiing on more isolated islands, accessible only by boat, such as Stormolla and Litlmolla


After your backcountry skiing day, you can relax in the warmth of a sauna, before dining in or out. You can end your evenings in the beauty of the most charming villages at the end of the world, such as Svolvær, Henningsvær or Reine.
