It's all about the view
The Narvik region serves as an excellent base for alpine ski touring and off-piste skiing. Enjoy beeing surrounded by fjords, islands, deep valleys, pristine lakes, waterfalls, glaciers and mountains plateaus. But first and foremost, wild and rugged mountains in seemingly endless terrain.
Toppturer på ski i Narvik og Nord-Norge
Narvik ligger perfekt plassert, midt i Nord-Norge og innerst i Ofotfjorden, mellom kystfjell og innlandsfjell. Dette sammen med et gunstig mikroklima gir et veldig godt utgangspunkt for noen spektakulære og nydelige toppturer i Nord-Norske fjell. Hvis vi sammenligner oss med kystområdene lengre ut mot vest, som Lofoten, nyter vi et mye tørrere klima. Dette betyr også at vi har mye større muligheter for å finne gode skiforhold i dette området.
Certified ski guides
The nature of the region led to having a remarkably high number of internationally certified mountain guides residing here. As of today, we have six guides with the highest certification, which is unique in a national context. If you really want to explore the possibilities for ski touring, we strongly recommend using these guides. They have invaluable knowledge about the local area.
The perfect destination
With all its possibilities from urban skiing at the Narvikfjellet Ski Resort, which also offers the best ski-lift accessed skiing in Scandinavia, to the most recognized heli-skiing enterprise in Scandinavia, the Narvik region is a perfect place for an arctic ski touring experience.
The region is a true haven for anyone who loves skiing and wants to experience the beauty of the arctic. With its stunning scenery, top-notch facilities, and welcoming locals, it's no wonder that Narvik is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after ski destinations in the north.
Enjoy skiing in an urban setting
If you're someone who loves skiing and also enjoys the convenience and amenities of city living, then the town of Narvik in Norway may be the perfect destination for you.
After a long day out on the slopes, you can come back to town and enjoy all the comforts and conveniences of city living. Whether you're in the mood for a delicious meal at a cozy restaurant, a relaxing drink at a local bar, or a bit of shopping in some trendy boutiques, you can find it all in Narvik.
When it comes to accommodations, Narvik has plenty of options to choose from, ranging from cozy lodges to luxurious 4-star hotels. Regardless of your budget or preferences, you can easily find the perfect place to stay that suits your needs.
Om noen nevner topptur og Nord-Norge vil de fleste tenke på Lofoten og Lyngen. Merkelig nok er Narvik nesten ukjent i den sammenheng, selv om den lille byen tilbyr noen av de beste off-piste områdene i Skandinavia.
