Ski touring in Norway in the fjords of the Lofoten Islands

i

The wild and imposing scenery of the Lofoten Islands forms the backdrop for a week of ski touring along this Norwegian archipelago.  It lies just north of the Arctic Circle. The Lofoten offers a landscape of steep mountains, sharp peaks, deep fjords and picturesque villages. In the spring, the aurora borealis is frequent and spectacular, and the days are very long.

i

Our base will be a small, typical and comfortable hotel in a beautiful fjord south of the city of Svolvær from where we will explore the Lofoten archipelago in our rental minibus.

i

Each day we will travel to a different area for a ski tour along the slopes which overlook the sea.

We will explore the inland coast of the Vestfjorden, where the waters are quieter and the weather milder, traveling across the fjords and islands to the west of the archipelago.

i

It is on this protected coast that most of the traditional fishing villages with brightly coloured wooden houses are found.

The climbs start at sea level and range from 600 to 1,200 meters. The pristine slopes covered with light snow and spectacular views will bring us back to the seaside and our minibus.

Back in our hotel everyone can rest and relax.

i

On the last evening, we will celebrate our return to civilization in a tavern typical of the port of Svolvær..
