Norway’s mountains, glaciers and deep coastal fjords make it one of the most exciting places to ski on the planet, boasting a mixture of delightful in-land resorts and staggeringly beautiful coastal ski tours.
Take a boat trip through the Lygnen fjord or across the Lofoten archipelago before being dropped off to ski backcountry routes that stretch into plunging blue fjords below. Ski touring in Norway opens up countless mountains where solitude, panoramic views and untouched powder await, not to mention the chance to witness the magical Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).
Whether it’s summer glacier skiing overlooking fjords or boat-based ski touring from summit to sea above the Arctic Circle, skiing in Norway is the perfect adventure for skiers looking to escape it all.
The ski touring season in Norway usually runs from mid February until the end of May.
