Trip detail Lofoten

The famous Lofoten Islands offer charming views and atmospheres. The jagged Norwegian mountains seem to have been shaped to host ski mountaineering activities: a memorable experience of the unique view of the sea and the amazing “lights of the North”, which make the landscape full of charm.

According to weather and snow conditions, Snow Life offers medium-length itineraries with a difference of altitude between 750 and 1500 meters, suitable for every level of physical preparation.

Given the particularity of the trip, we prefer working with small groups with just 5-6 people for each instructor rather than big groups. Our guides are freeride specialized ski and snowboardinstructors. They know Norwegian mountains perfectly as well as they can identify the best itineraries and we are legally entitled to take people off-piste, except for those itineraries where mountaineering equipment (ropes, ice axes and crampons) is compulsory.

Years of experience on the field allow us to arrange a flexible program by always having one or more backup plans in case of better weather conditions in other locations and quickly understanding the needs of the group.

The trips are not technically difficult. However, a good competence of the techniques of ascent and descent together with a good physical preparation is required. The ground in Norway is generally safe but it is always better to pay the utmost attention: safety is Snow Life first priority, for this reason, avalanche equipment is compulsory.
