This week of ski touring in the Lofoten islands in Norway takes place from a nice and cosy Lofoten ski lodge, which is our base. We have at our disposal a van, which leaves us free to go for the best itineraries in the islands of the archipelago. The main islands are all interconnected by a network of bridges and tunnels.
Optional and depending on the conditions, we can do one or more ski days with boat access to isolated islands, such as Stormolla and Litlmolla.
The ascents begin at the level of the sea and thanks to this low altitude it is without much fatigue that one
takes 3 to 5 hours of walking a day for height differences of 600 to 1,000 m. Slopes of
virgin snow with spectacular views take us back through the rocks and forests to the edge of
sea, where the van is waiting for us.
Back at our Lofoten ski lodge, everyone relaxes at their convenience before choosing to dine «at home» or out. We will have the opportunity to go out after skiing in localities such as Svolvær, Henningsvare, or even Reine, to finish in beauty our days of ski touring in the Lofoten islands.
