Ski touring in norway

surrounded by great landscapes...

Located 300km north of the Arctic circle, this 500km² archipelago is a collection of mountainous islands. Imagine Chamonix's Aiguilles emerging from the ocean! Between blue and black seabeds with peaks peaking between 700m and 1085m, we go up the massifs from a camp based on the coast.

your place of residence
From this fishing port brimming with boats and wooden houses, Henningsvaer is the resort for this quality trip. With its brightly-coloured houses on stilts, this haven of peace adds a special flavour to your trip!

There's no shortage of activities in the great outdoors: jagged peaks, fjords, Northern Lights and sea eagle spotting all add up to a unique and atypical setting where snow and ski slopes are one and the same.

what about the snow?
It's in March and April that the days are long enough to enjoy day-long hikes.

The amount of snow is often substantial and the quality of the snow generally remains powdery, while the temperatures become pleasant.

But, because of the location, you need to be prepared for snowstorms, wind, sun and moments of fullness... The weather changes quickly, and that's no myth!
