Ski Touring Lofoten, Norway

March 26 – April 2, 2017

LOFOTEN SKI TOURING

Lofoten is a little piece of heaven located on the artic circle in northern Norway. This archipelago feels like an island of its own, stretching west into the Norwegian sea with jagged peaks rising straight out of the ocean and offering world-class terrain for every level of skier. There is something so enchanting about putting skis on with the sound of breaking waves in the background and scent of ocean filling your nostrils. With each step, the scenery changes, the fjords become more defined, the contrast between the ocean and the mountains deepens, until you reach the summit with the views stretching to the ocean on each side, offering some of the most breathtaking landscapes I have ever got to experience. But the icing on the cake might just be skiing back down to the ocean and feeling a deep sense of balance with the opposing energies offered by the mountains and the oceans, the yin and yang of nature.

This is the perfect ski holiday with unlimited potential for ski touring, relaxing, sauna, great food and also visiting beautiful typical Norwegian towns and landscapes!

Lodging & Food:

We will be staying at the beautiful Anker Brygge, which is located right on the water and within walking distance to Svolvaer. We will beautiful and typical shared cabins. At the time of booking, you can let me know if you would like your own cabin (at extra cost). We are offering 3 group dinners during the trip. On other nights we will have the option to eat together or people can be on their own program.

 

Weather days:

Bad weather is part of the experience in the mountains and in Lofoten, the weather can come as quickly as it can leave. So we will go out everyday, rain or shine and if we decide to cut the day short, we will have options to visit the beautiful town of Henningsvaer with its surprising cod fish racks, its harbour, the best coffee shop on the island and its classic Kannelbullar (Cinnamon buns) and its cute little shops, stroll around Svolvaer, enjoy a massage, go surfing in the cold sea or just rest in your cabin, listening to the gentle waves below.
