Backcountry Ski Lofoten

Backcountry Ski Lofoten Islands
The Fiskund takes skiers through the fjords to explore the Lofoten Mountains.

Imagine a place where an archipelago of glacially chiseled islands protrude into the aqua marine waters of the North Atlantic. The Lofoten Island landscape is like nothing else in this world. Check out a backcountry ski Lofoten experience.

A costal snowpack and steep featured terrain provides endless possibilities to explore the nooks and crannies of these stunning mountains. At 68 degrees north, the days grow long by late March and the ski season kicks into gear from March through late May.

Stunning backdrops and exciting descents.

We choose to stay in comfortable land-based accommodations and use a boat to access remote access ski and splitboard terrain to optimize our guests’ experience. There are also car accessed venues to explore when stormy weather sets in.

Exploring the arctic birch forests of the Lofoten Islands.

Our friends at Kompani Lofoten are wonderful hosts and provide comfortable accommodations and a truly Lofoten experience. Locally sourced food is used to prepare traditional Norwegian dishes. The Fiskund (their 90 year old wooden fishing troller) creates a unique way for guests to experience Lofoten life. The converted fishing boat that ferried Norwegian WWII refugees to Scotland takes guests back in time as it trolls through the icy waters of the fjords.
