Backcountry skiing in Norway

Surreal skiing experience just below the Arctic Circle
Back country Ski touring in Norway, Lofoten
Spectacular view over snow covered valleys and mountains during winter.

Backcountry adventure like no other

Shred tracks in supreme alpine terrain

Imagine carving through untouched powder snow beneath the midnight sun. Choose your skiing destination based on weather conditions, snow quality, and personal preferences, and if conditions are not to your liking in one location, simply move to another one.

When you’re ready to hit the slopes, let your guides lead you to thrilling descents and pristine powder stashes. Substantial snowfall combined with cold temperatures and low humidity create light, dry, and powdery snow, favored by skiers for its excellent glide and control.

Explore the Arctic wonders on a spacious expedition ship

Sailing along the Norwegian seaboard enables you to experience the ultimate freedom of movement. Enjoy mesmerizing beauty from the front-row seat and find that perfect balance between excitement and relaxation.

Access remote and less-visited ski destinations not easily accessible by road, venture into the pristine backcountry, and reach untouched slopes and hidden gems. Norway sure tops our backcountry skiing lists.

The journey itself is an adventure
Sailing through Norway’s majestic fjords and coastal waters allows you to soak in the scenery, witness wildlife, and experience the serenity of the Arctic

Midnight sun
Constant daylight during the summer allows more time for exploration and outdoor activities–you can even hit the slopes in the middle of the night

Travel made easy
Getting deeper into the Norwegian wilderness takes some planning. Leave the logistics to us and spend time making memories

My favorite part of the experience was getting to know Sigurd, the guide, and hearing about all his local adventures. He did a great job arranging all the details for the trip, making it a safe, fun, and enjoyable day in the backcountry of Svalbard. I would highly recommend Sigurd as a guide and feel like I made a new friend. If you visit, remember the weather changes pretty quickly so leave yourself a day or two of flexibility for unpredictable conditions.

Tom Wolfe coordinated a fabulous ski and sail trip to Svalbard. It was an amazing trip that took into consideration the goals and capabilities of each of the guests, while keeping safety top of mind. Tom is not only a professional guide, he’s a really nice guy too. I look forward to skiing with him (and the other guides) again in the future.

Fabulous crew, lovely people, great food, fun and accommodating. Excellent well appointed boat with unbelievably experienced skipper.


Had a fantastic time on the ski and sail trip. The longer you can go the better, you will not get bored of the incredible scenery and the experience of being able to fully unplug. The boat itself is extremely comfortable and Ulrik and Maria are very welcoming and seasoned hosts. You will be thinking “Should I quit my job and live on a boat???” by the end of the trip. Hope to return for more adventures in the coming years!

This is not just a ski trip. It’s the best trip you’ll ever have. Maria and Ulrik are the kindest people on the sea. They not only shared their amazing boat, delicious meals and plenty of laughs and magical moments with us but also paired us with an incredible guide to ski around the widest and most beautiful ski terrain I’ve ever seen! I highly recommend this trip to any skier who wants to have the time of their life! Thanks again for everything!

The best Heliskiing experience of my life, amazing snow, fantastic terrain. We’ll be back.

I wouldn’t change anything about my tour. It was really perfect…Ivar, our guide, was one of the best because he really knows the area and the region really well, and he explained and it was really one of the best ski trips I have ever had.

Marion V.

Perfect harmony between nature, host, and guest. What an exceptional place!

Cindy M.

We had the absolute best, professional, and very knowledgeable guides. I highly recommend you book your tours/excursions through Icelandic Mountain Guides!
