Lofoten Islands Norway Ski Touring

The Lofoten Islands of Norway provide a ski experience like no other. Located above the Arctic Circle west of Narvik, the archipelago is laden with deep fjords & precipitous mountains rising over 1000m straight out of the sea. Connected to the Norwegian mainland by a series of bridges, the island chain provides amazing ski touring & freeride descents in spectacular coastal landscapes. Despite its location with the Arctic Circle, temperatures are relatively mild (due to ocean current influences) when compared to the usual extremes in other places during winter, providing comfortable touring conditions. For detailed information see the Lofoten Islands page here >
