Lofoten as a ski touring destination.

Lofoten is surrounded by water in every direction and is one of the place where the saying "skiing from the summit to the sea" makes the most sense.The mountains in Lofoten have an altitude from 700 to 1000m above sea level, and because of the harsh climate the treeline is somewhere between 300 and 400m, which gives a very easy access to the alpine terrain. 

With such a dramatic landscape, many summits are perfect for ski touring and well worth a visit.  Småtindan, Torskmannen, Geitgaljen and Trolltindan are just a few names on the long list of our favourite mountains.

Lofoten is famous for its oceanic climate with fast changing weather, and Mars is the best month for winter conditions.The dark times are over and it's possible to enjoy both long days with sunlight and northenlights in the evening!

Program & Concept

Like for all our ski trips, our goals are both to deliver the best possible skiing and to share with you our knowledge. We want you to come back home with new skills for future ski trips!

30 March: Arrival Day

From Svolvær airport, it's only 20mn to our lodge (1h from Leknes).

31 Mars  5 April: Skiing!

Every day a new place, that's the plan! Depending on the weather and snow conditions, we'll take you to the best possible skiing. Each day will start with a morning meeting. We'll talk about the weather and snow, and from there we'll explain you how we choose our destination.

The program will also be adjusted to the group skills and expectations. 

Group size

At Upguides, we limit the size of groups to 6 skiers for a guide, at most.

Touring and freeride skiing often requires to take your distances, for safety or for comfort. A small group means more skiing for everyone and the group moves more smoothly.

And do we really have to talk about the additional security provided by a group of reasonable size? The guide can have everyone in front of his eyes at all times, and communicate better.

Large groups are slow, they move slower, and we love skiing too much to put up with that. This is not our choice to have so many skiers in a group that it would be difficult to remember each name!
