Ski touring in Narvik and Northern Norway
Narvik is perfectly located between the coastal and inland mountains in the Northern part of Norway, which gives access to a wide range of different terrain and microclimate. If we compare ourselves with the coastal areas further out, such as Lofoten, we enjoy a much drier climate. It also means that we have i higher chance to find good skiing conditions in our area.
If somebody mentions ski touring and Northern Norway most people probably think about Lofoten Islands and Lyngen.
Strange enough Narvik is practically unknown even though the little town offers some of the best backcountry skiing in Scandinavia
