Skitouring

Ski-touring Trip Lofoten – 03.04 – 10.04.2016

Snow, Skins and Ocean

Lofoten

The Lofoten archipelago is located off the coast of Norway within the Arctic Circle. Here the warmth of the gulf-stream current creates large snowfalls and makes for a comparatively mild climate despite the high degree of latitude. The craggy mountains and flanking blue fjords, which jut straight into the ocean, outskirt these unique islands and stand in contrast to the more gentle and open slopes that makes this location a great place for ski-touring!

In Kabelvag, a traditional Norwegian fishing village, lodging will be secured in a quiet and comfortable Rorbuer. Kabelvag is surrounded by many wonderful ski-touring hikes that are easily accessible by car. Ski-touring the energy-laden and bizarre mountain/ocean landscape of the Lofoten islands is sure to leave you with life long memories!
Evenings will be mostly catered meals including fresh fish and other Norwegian specialties
(the mountain guide will also be here for help), with the occasional outings at traditional
Norwegian cuisine restaurants.
