The Gulf Stream brings in high amounts of snow to the wild and remote islands of the Lofoten. During the arctic winter it is usually very calm and it is not uncommon that you experience this fascinating landscape all by yourself. The ski tours are very diverse and of all levels of difficulty – most of them with views on the ocean! At Lofoten Ski Lodge we are welcomed with great hospitality and a lodge typical for Norway. After exciting tours we are able to fully recover and relax here.
Process of the trip
We will pick you up at the airport of Harstadt-Narvik. It is 2.30 hour drive until we reach our lodge. During the next 6 days we will be able to explore the amazing nature and peaks in the area. Depending on weather and snow conditions the guide will decide on spot which tours to make on the different days. The starting points of the tours are all within a one hour drive away from the lodge. On the following Sunday we will head back to Svolvaer, from where we take the plane back home to central Europe.

Please note the following three points after your booking:
A good or very good physical shape =>
A realistic self-assessment and an appropriate fitness level is required to join our trips. In order to enjoy long ski days you need to get in shape and train prior to the trip. A good fitness also reduces the risk of injury.
Information about the destination, vaccinations, health =>
Please keep yourself updated about the current (political) situation and country specific particularities of your destination. You can do so by checking the website of the ministry of foreign affairs of your own country.
Travel insurance =>
Please note that there is a potential risk of injury on a ski trip. When travelling abroad several travel insurances are imperative. Besides a travel cancellation insurance we highly recommend a travel health insurance as well as a travel accident insurance. These insurances need to cover potential costs for search and rescue operations and costs for hospital stays etc. It is your own responsibility to make sure you are covered accordingly.
For all of our trips that include a flight, a travel accident and travel health insurance that cover potential costs for search and rescue operations and medical costs (for example hospital stays) is mandatory. The insurance will be queried in our online registration form and we kindly ask you to fill in that information.
Appropriate insurance companies you can find in the internet.
Please also check your credit card, eventually the according insurances are included.
