Ski touring in Lofoten, Vesterålen and Senja

If the beauty of these Arctic islands doesn’t leave you breathless, the extraordinary ski touring experiences almost certainly will.

Several of the lodges offer transportation to the skiing areas by boat. These tailor-made expeditions cruise along the islands' vast coastlines and deliver the passengers within reach of that coveted powder snow. Operated by professional guides who will help you to access the best available runs, the programs are adapted according to the weather and local conditions.

An early winter visit to this region gives you a splendid chance to spot the mystic beauty of the northern lights . On the other hand, the long skiing season also allows visitors to enjoy the magic of the midnight sun during late spring and early summer.

This picture-perfect area further offers a range of exciting rest-day activities . From Arctic wave surfing at the Unstad Surf Camp to sea eagle and whale safaris, the islands of Lofoten, Vesterålen and Senja are a paradise for any winter adventurer.

Stay safe and find out about the avalanche risk before you set out.

The stunning archipelago of the Lofoten islands in Northern Norway extend far into the Atlantic Ocean. It is a vast coastal area with jagged granite mountains, providing seemingly endless opportunities for ski touring. Summit-to-sea descents, testing couloirs and open birch forests are sure to meet the ambitions of every ski adventurer, whether beginner or advanced.

Epic run Store Trolltind (1,036 metres) is a spectacular peak in Trollfjorden. Transport by boat to the starting point is required for this tour, which offers great skiing in wild and untouched terrain.

North of Lofoten lies Vesterålen, a chain of craggy islands dominated by stunning peaks and beautiful fjords. The summits facing the open ocean on the outer side of the islands are ideal for ski touring. Due to its remote location, Vesterålen is one of the least visited skiing destinations in the north – so if you like solitude, this is the place for you.

Epic run Stortinden stands some 1,000 meters above Vangpollen in Sigerfjorden. The western flank is an uninterrupted steep descent that ends right at the seashore. The exposed summit offers a panorama of the jagged skyline of Hinnøya.

Senja, the second largest island in Norway, has equally great ski touring potential with peaks extending as high as 1,300 metres. Located in the county of Troms, Senja’s mountainous landscape is full of secluded hills that are perfect for shredding. There are no lifts around here. After skiing, you can go hunting for the northern lights, try ice climbing or fishing.

Epic run Store Hesten (874 metres) has an unusually accessible run – you can start skinning right next to the the parking at Hestesletta. With spectacular views and a variety of descents, Store Hesten is considered Senja’s best ski touring mountain.

Getting here and around, safety in the mountains.

About Lofoten

Lofoten is an archipelago in northern Norway that is interesting precisely because of its location. Because they lie within the Arctic Circle, they have all the characteristics of the northern lands, and a special climate is given to them by the sea currents that flow around this area – the Gulf Stream, the North Atlantic Stream, and the Norwegian Stream. Lofoten has one of the sweetest climates in the polar region, however, there is no shortage of snow in these places, we usually only run out of time to ski the next peak.

At the same time, the Lofoten impresses us with its unspoiled nature, countless fjords that penetrate deep into the islands. The fishing tradition is strongly anchored in Norwegian culture and its a way of survival since Viking times. Therefore, on our trip, we will not only ski through the virgin fluffy snow and observe with our mouths open one of the most beautiful views in the world. We will visit the best Viking museum in the world – Lofotr Vikingsmuseum, the best-preserved fishing village in Norway – Nusfjord, World War II Museum, which houses parts of the 2nd largest German battleship Tirpitz, which was sunk among the fjords in Lofoten.

Where and when do I meet your team?

Our team will wait for you at the airport. If you are arriving by land meeting point is also at the airport or elsewhere if you let us know where (this service is not included in a price). After the meeting, you will be transferred to your accommodation. Please note, that in some areas, due to a long drive to our base, we provide only one transportation per group, usually in the morning (Iceland, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Altai…). So take into consideration that one extra day and accommodation may be necessary.

Where do I meet my guide?

The guide will arrange a specific meeting location and time with you specifically. Most commonly, this location is at your accommodation or our base.

How much hiking up is involved?

There will be approximately 4-6 hours of hiking broken up in the day and approximately 800~1100 vertical meters of skiing.

Do I need climbing skins?

Yes, all of our ski touring tours require uphill travel, and skins are by far the most efficient way. Skins attach to the base of skis or split-snowboards, peel off at the top of the run, and get stowed in a pocket for the downhill fun.

Can I rent equipment?

You can rent equipment, but you need to inform us at least 21 days before the start of your program. Our trips are in remote areas where there are no shops or rental services, so we need to provide them from a distance. Please note that rental on the spot is usually not available.

Ulrik Møller

Had a fantastic time on the ski and sail trip. The longer you can go the better, you will not get bored of the incredible scenery and the experience of being able to fully unplug. The boat itself is extremely comfortable and Ulrik and Maria are very welcoming and seasoned hosts. You will be thinking “Should I quit my job and live on a boat???” by the end of the trip. Hope to return for more adventures in the coming years!

This is not just a ski trip. It’s the best trip you’ll ever have. Maria and Ulrik are the kindest people on the sea. They not only shared their amazing boat, delicious meals and plenty of laughs and magical moments with us but also paired us with an incredible guide to ski around the widest and most beautiful ski terrain I’ve ever seen! I highly recommend this trip to any skier who wants to have the time of their life! Thanks again for everything!

I’m tempted to say that the trip was an utter disaster and we all suffered dysentery because I would prefer to keep this small family run business a secret. But without a doubt, the journey was a complete joy and reminded me, my friend, and all the new friends I gained of how grateful we are that Ulrike and Maria run this tour in some of the most scenic, adventurous, and hidden gem ski touring locations away from the highly marketed Lofoten region. Meeting locals, catching fish,sauna beers and being out in untouched nature- were just a few things that made this trip a joy.

A week of ski and sail. Great atmosphere, food and exlusions. Sauna, sailing and ridiculously good skiing made the trip perfect! The hosts Ulrik, Maria and Ramacito did such a good job establishing the perfect Wibe so we were able to have a thrilling and relaxing trip full of contrast and unforgettable experiences. I will definitely come back another time.

I try to take my son on an annual Father/ Son trip, and this year we were lucky enough to find Ulrik, Maria, and Ramacito. Our previous trips tend to be on the more adventurous side of a typical holiday, and this trip did not disappoint. Within, an hour of meeting Maria and Ulrik we felt at home and welcome and the sails were set heading towards the Fjords to the south of us. Immediately, I was helping Ulrik sail (he didn’t need my help but I wanted to), and that night as the sun set we set a fishing net with the hope of catching some fresh fish dinner. The next day we woke to a tasty Norwegian style breakfast, and for 7 days in a row I went skiing. All the locations we went were super interesting, and the guides were literally the best you could hire. I can not say enough good things about our ski guides Sverre, Bjornnar, and Suel. My expectations for this trip were met or exceeded, but the true highlight of the trip was getting to know Maria and Ulrik.

This is the most amazing trip I’ve ever done. Everything was perfect all the way! Not only the beautiful mountains and fjords, but the human experience that Maria, Ulrik (and Ramoncito indeed) had brought with their warm personalities, their smile, energy and kindness. They make you feel home, and almost convinced me to move there! Ski was wonderful: Sol Idland our guide was the best guide we could have! Positive, expert, funny! We had breathtaking views of the fjord and the moutains while skiing, you cannot imagine this until you are. Special note to their home-made meal: Jesus Lord it was delicious. The only bad side: you will want to quit your job and never want to leave. If it was only for me, I would keep them secret just for me, but they deserve to be known as the best trip in Norway! Thanks again for everything! See you soon hopefully! xxx

We have one of the best restaurants right next door.

Our recommendation - ski boots in the hand luggage?

ski touring trip Lofoten

  • Ski touring 🎿

From sea to summit & summit to sea - ski touring in the Lofoten - Norway

8 days from 2945 € per participant

Guaranteed departure from 4 people


  • A unique skiing experience from the sea to the sky, and among Northern lights
  • An unforgettable ski tour across the wide open Norwegian wilderness in wintertime
  • Relaxing atmosphere and great loop around all Lofoten with our van!
  • Accommodation in twin rooms, in comfortable hotels - no more tiny Norwegian Rorbus (fishermen's huts)!
  • Accompanied by a French UIAGM mountain guide who knows the region inside out

In a nutshell

Nestled in the confines of septentrional Europe (septentrional, there's one for you Scrabble buffs), just above the arctic circle, we’re heading for a true winter wonderland ! This trip encompasses all of the things we’ve come to love.

To start, we have a boat transfer of a couple of hours that gives us time to get used to our surroundings and take in the stunning views. Of course, we do some great skiing and choose our itineraries as we go along, as weather conditions dictate.

We may even go out skiing twice on the same day. We often end up by the sea, and sometimes in small fishing villages, with skis on our feet ! Then it’ll be time to get back to our warm and welcoming rorbu - this is just another "little" detail that makes this trip to the Lofoten so special - without mentioning the spectacular granit cliffs that drop into the the sea and the easily accessible summits that make you feel as if you're on top of the world, just that !

Friends, family or just colleagues at work ?

You wish to customize one of our trips, among friends and at your own convenience ? No problem, contact us so we can adapt a trip to suit you, right down to the last detail ! Our trips are tailor-made so giving you what you want is as easy as 123.

- Ski helmet (highly recommended)

- Under layer: breathable long sleeved tops to maintain heat. A tip: merino wool is breathable and has anti-bacterial properties and is therefore less likely to smell as opposed to synthetic fabrics. Take this into consideration if you need to update your wardrobe.

- Middle layer: a light polar or synthetic jacket for an extra layer of heat during breaks

- Outer layer: a Gore-tex or similar type of jacket with a breathable waterproof membrane. Make sure it's lightweight and compact so it doesn't take up too much space in your backpack

- Bottom layer: trousers with a breathable waterproof membrane (Gore Tex or similar) with long side zips allowing air to flow, recommended on climbs

- Hands: light fleece or soft shell gloves, a pair of silk glove liners to go underneath, warm gloves with a breathable and waterproof membrane. Mittens are always a good idea for really cold days of for those of you who feel the cold !

- Swimming gear: it takes up such little space, it would be a shame not to bring it just in case. Avoid swimming shorts or bermudas, they are not usually allowed.

- Ski socks: merino wool socks are breathable and have anti-bacterial properties and are less likely to smell as opposed to those made of synthetic fabrics. Think about them if you need to stock up.

- Slippers / Crocs recommended for evening wear.

  • Check that you have the right equipment
  • Take spare batteries and a charger for your electronic devices (camera, video recorder, tracking devices etc)
  • Bring some cash and your credit card
  • Leave in a good frame of mind: we're going to have a great time even if we may not happen to not make it to the summit !
  • Before leaving: water the plants, empty the rubbish bin, turn off the water and gas, and tell your partner that you're going to have a good time (not by text message), that you well deserved... If you don't follow the latter recommendation, you'll most probably kick yourself when you get back !

See you on the slopes !  Have great runs with AZIMUT !

Norway ski touring - Lofoten islands

Norway ski touring – lofoten islands.

Norway ski touring trip to the Lofoten Islands is a wonderful experience between fjords and unforgettable landscapes. The Lofoten Islands, historically associated with fishing, have a unique morphology, with low mountains (between 600 and 1,200 meters), ending in sheer cliffs overlooking the sea.

Despite their not so considerable height, the mountains in Lofoten Islands are nonetheless superb. Every day you can choose a different itinerary, start skinning up right at sea level. There are endless opportunities for all levels. Easy tours to enjoy the beauty of the landscape, or more engaging steep and funny descents. A perfect experience to make happy even the most discerning freerider!

During our 8-days ski tour, we will stay overnight in the characteristic “rorbuer” (oarsman’s hut), typical shelters used by Norwegian fishermen. These little houses, full equipped and very comfortable, are dotted all round the Lofoten Islands and the Norwegian coast.


Departure from Milan, Turin, Verona or another airport (according to the participants’ residence) with low cost flights to Evanes (Harstad-Narvik). Transfer to Evenskjer with a rented car and overnight stay in a rorbuer (fishermen’s huts) where we will start our Lofoten ski touring trip.

Difference in altitude: 736 m After breakfast, transfer to Svolvaer , where we’ll leave our luggage. After a quick snack, we’ll set off and skin up Sydalsfjellet, an easy climb to get familiar with this place and its ambiance. This will be an idyllic plaisir descent.

Difference in altitude: 900 m Ascent of the marvellous Varden East and, if conditions allow, crossing as far as Stortind.

Difference in altitude: 1085 m Ascent of the spectacular Geitgaljeting, the most alpine and evocative peak in the island.

Difference in altitude: 934 m On this long touring day we’ll reach one of the most isolated islands, the Langstrandstind.

Difference in altitude: 755 m We skin up Torskmannen, where wide slopes abound: here you’ll be able to give free rein to slash-‘n-burn turns. Transfer to Evenskjer, where we’ll spend our last night and we’ll organize our trip back.

Difference in altitude: 930 m Transfer to Harstad and ascent to Nonstinden on Topptur area. Overnight in Hotel

Transfer to Evanes (Harstad-Narvik) for our flight back to Italy.

The 5-days program can be modified according to snow conditions and weather conditions, as well as depending on the technical skills of the participants. The ski-mountaineering itineraries do not present particular technical difficulties (average daily difference between 700-1,000 m), only some short final parts may require the use of crampons or knives (rampant). It also requires a good adaptation to group life and the preparation of daily meals as it will be housed in large houses with common areas.

Lofoten might be the greatest ski-touring experience ever

The best way to experience the peaks of Lofoten is on a pair of skis in winter. Nowhere else in the world offers such mountain and sea views, while the thrilling descents are breathtaking.

Imagine standing on the summit of a mountain in Lofoten on a sunny day in March or April. The mountainside beneath you is so steep that you can’t see the shore at the bottom, but out at sea there are hundreds of boats and fishermen, because this is fishing season. The Lofoten Wall stretches away to your right and left, and right now you’re a part of it. Way out to your right, you can see Lofotodden and then Mosken, Værøy, and Røst. Straight ahead, in the distance, you can see the peaks of Steigartindan on the mainland. And down to your left is an almost vertical gully, down which you are about to plunge. If this sounds absolutely terrifying, then skip to another page. If it’s got your adrenaline pumping, then read on!

New tracks in the skiing landscape

From an off-piste perspective, you can’t say that Lofoten is anything other than a collection of ski slopes. As a rule, you can park your car and walk for ten minutes to reach the foot of the mountain. There are slopes of every kind, from wide and gentle for beginners to tight vertical gullies for ski-touring extremists. The height of the mountains might not be all that impressive, with Himmeltinden on Vestvågøy island only reaching a modest 931 metres (3,054 feet), despite its name which translates as Sky Peak, but there are downhill sections of every grade of difficulty.

Late start, late finish

Lofoten is in the middle of the Gulf Stream, and the snow comes late here. It’s not until Christmas that there is any to speak of. But that’s also the time of the twilight months and their short days, and on top of that, the area is lashed by storms so strong they are given names. But as we head into February, the weather becomes more predictable, even if a temperamental low-pressure area from the Arctic Ocean can fill the gullies with hip-deep, delicate powder snow. March and April are perfect for excursions in Lofoten, with very settled weather, long days, mild daytime temperatures and reliable snow. In May, there is still snow between the peaks, with grainy snow-like soft ice cream, which is fun to ski on. In some years, the season even lasts until June, letting you ski under the midnight sun.

Lofoten Splitboard and Ski-touring Festival

At Hattvika Lodge at Ballstad on Vestvågøy island, a mountaineering festival is held every April. The event takes place over a long weekend and includes daily mountaineering trips to specially selected ski mountains with a difference, a trip out on the Lofoten Sea to fish for Skrei cod, and parties in the evenings, with Skrei cod, salt cod, and other local Lofoten dishes on the menu. The event is sold out long in advance each year, so book early. At the bottom of this article, we have posted footage filmed during the festival showing the skiers Kaj Zachrisson, Tom Guneriussen and David Underland.

Safety first

The steep mountains in Lofoten are not for everyone. It’s particularly important to be aware of your own level and limitations. You must be sure that you can actually ski down the mountain that you have chosen to ascend. Your basic personal equipment should include an avalanche beacon, avalanche probe, and spade, and you must be able to use this equipment. You should also have had some companion rescue training in the mountains. Wind and temperature changes through the winter mean that the snow conditions vary tremendously from year to year. It is therefore important to take a local guide who has been watching the snow develop throughout the winter. In any case, remember to check the avalanche forecast at Norway’s national forecast Varsom

Fun facts from our Moscow Metro Tours:

From the very first days of its existence, the Moscow Metro was the object of civil defense, used as a bomb shelter, and designed as a defense for a possible attack on the Soviet Union.

At a depth of 50 to 120 meters lies the second, the coded system of Metro-2 of Moscow subway, which is equipped with everything you need, from food storage to the nuclear button.

According to some sources, the total length of Metro-2 reaches over 150 kilometers.

The Museum was opened on Sportivnaya metro station on November 6, 1967. It features the most interesting models of trains and stations.

Coffee Ring

The first scheme of Moscow Metro looked like a bunch of separate lines. Listen to a myth about Joseph Stalin and the main brown line of Moscow Metro.

Zodiac Metro

According to some astrologers, each of the 12 stops of the Moscow Ring Line corresponds to a particular sign of the zodiac and divides the city into astrological sector.

Astrologers believe that being in a particular zadiac sector of Moscow for a long time, you attract certain energy and events into your life.

Moscow Metro

The Moscow Metro Tour is included in most guided tours’ itineraries. Opened in 1935, under Stalin’s regime, the metro was not only meant to solve transport problems, but also was hailed as “a people’s palace”. Every station you will see during your Moscow metro tour looks like a palace room. There are bright paintings, mosaics, stained glass, bronze statues… Our Moscow metro tour includes the most impressive stations best architects and designers worked at - Ploshchad Revolutsii, Mayakovskaya, Komsomolskaya, Kievskaya, Novoslobodskaya and some others.

What is the kremlin in russia?

The guide will not only help you navigate the metro, but will also provide you with fascinating background tales for the images you see and a history of each station.

And there some stories to be told during the Moscow metro tour! The deepest station - Park Pobedy - is 84 metres under the ground with the world longest escalator of 140 meters. Parts of the so-called Metro-2, a secret strategic system of underground tunnels, was used for its construction.

During the Second World War the metro itself became a strategic asset: it was turned into the city's biggest bomb-shelter and one of the stations even became a library. 217 children were born here in 1941-1942! The metro is the most effective means of transport in the capital.

There are almost 200 stations 196 at the moment and trains run every 90 seconds! The guide of your Moscow metro tour can explain to you how to buy tickets and find your way if you plan to get around by yourself.
