Arctic combo – off-piste, heli-ski and ski touring

Heli-skiing, off-piste in Narvik, ski touring in pristine mountain terrain and by the Norwegian fjords

Six days of skiing with a mountain guide who will share knowledge about avalanches, safety equipment, snow and navigation, etc. We are staying at Trollviken Lodge. From here you will explore the best of the skiing in the Artic region.  

During the week we have one day of heli-skiing and we plan it so that we get the most out of the helicopter time. The price includes one hour of efficient flight time. With our experienced guides it will be a day that you will remember. We will also go off-piste skiing from Narviksfjellet's lifts. The view of the beautiful fjords and the Atlantic Ocean makes the experience complete. This week also includes two to three days of ski touring. Depending on weather conditions, we select the best tour for your group. We plan trips to the summits around the fjords in the Narvik area.

Trollviken Lodge is owned and operated by Magnus Strand and his partner Carin. It is an old fishing farm at the end of the road, right by the sea. The reason they decided to live here is clear. The surroundings are beautiful, there are hundreds of ski touring summits within day tour distances, you can drive 45 minutes to Riksgränsen for heli-skiing and if the conditions are right in Lofoten we can make a day trip there too. It is also only 25 minutes away from Evenes/Harstad airport, with airlines who offer cheap flights from Oslo.

Preliminary weekly program
Day 1, Sunday – arrival
In the evening you meet with the mountain guide for the week and go through the questions and equipment.

Day 2, Monday – ski touring
Weather and wind will determine our choice, today's goal is an alpine tour with around 700-800 vertical meters. If we go for Melkefjell, Spanstind or Rivtind we will get views of the ocean as a bonus.

Day 3, Tuesday – off-piste skiing in Narvik
We rely on lifts at Narviksfjellet, there we will find very nice easy-accessed off-piste skiing. If we need to get away a bit we will hike a shorter distance or put the skins on. Your mountain guide will show you the secret places to ski, everything with the spectacular view of the fjords and the Atlantic Ocean.

Day 4, Wednesday – heli-skiing
We will have a nice full day of heli-skiing, with an hour of helicopter flight time for ourselves. It may not sound much but with our experienced mountain guides and pilots, it means a day of at least 5 000 vertical meters skiing. Having our own helicopter makes finding good powder much easier for the guide. Many guests testify that this is the best heli-skiing in Europe and we are confident that this day will be a lifelong memory. We may finish with one ski tour to get maximum skiing out of our helicopter time.

Day 5, Thursday – ski touring
The Sleeping Queen has got its name from the contour of the mountain, a beautiful silhouette of a woman lying down where you can see the forehead, nose and chin. The view from the top is just as breathtaking and it is a nice mountain for ski touring.

Day 6, Friday – ski touring
Today we will go to Rombakstøtta. This impressive mountain above the fjord Rombak has one of the most magnificent views imaginable. Here, we will probably need to use crampons and ice axes close to the summit. If the conditions further out on Lofoten are good, we will make a ski touring day trip out there.

Day 7, Saturday – ski touring or off-piste skiing
Narvik is classic ski soil with lots of off-piste opportunities.
