Guided Ski Touring in Narvikfjellet

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 (Association Canadian Mountain Guides) Ski Guide. Whether you prefer a quiet ski tour or a day freeriding – we got something for you.

Narvikfjellet Freeride

Ride Narvikfjellet's legendary back-bowl lines like Mørkholla or Tredjeholla with a local ACMG Ski Guide! Going with a certified ski guide gives you access to first-hand avalanche information and the best snow of the day - and access to his favourite lines. Lifts take you to 1000 m, from where some runs are accessible - but the better lines require some walking up (20-30 min) to reach the north and south facing runs of Tredjetoppen (1272 m). Ski bindings with walking function or splitboards are preferable. 

Note this tour requires avalanche safety gear, and a helmet is strongly recommended. If you need to rent gear, please let us know. 

Note: This program requires that upper chair lift to work. Should weather/winds prevent the lift from running, you have the option of switching to the ski touring program.

Narvikfjellet Ski Touring

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.

Prior to 1 February, we run both programs as "Early Bird" special. The days are short, so you will need a proper headlamp - but, you will get the chance to see the Northern Lights while skiing in Narvikfjellet backcountry!
