Guided Ski Touring in NarvikfjelletDate: Friday 4 dec 2020 - Monday 31 May 2021 Show map
The top of Narvikfjellet is the start of seemingly endless ski touring terrain and some of the best list-assisted off-piste skiing/snowboarding in Norway. This season, you can explore this terrain with an experienced and certified ACMG Ski Guide.
Ski touring around Narvikfjellet! Our new cable car to 659 m gives you a quick start and immediate access right out of Narvik, and if weather permits, the chair lift to Linken 1003 m gives you even faster access.
Once you put your skins on, you can quickly reach quiet areas with a large variety of ski touring terrain. Your ski guide will pick the best tour for you, depending on the weather, Avalanche conditions and Your Fitness Level. Examples include Tredjetoppen (1272 m) Moskočohkka (1254 m) and longer, demanding tours around Beisfjordtøtta (1448 m).
This program is designed for intermediate, advanced and expert skier or snow-/splitboarders with previous skitouring experience.
If you are new to ski touring, we also run this tour as an introduction to ski touring, where your guide will share techniques and knowledge to increase your skiing skills and safety knowledge.
