In a nutshell

Nestled in the confines of septentrional Europe (septentrional, there's one for you Scrabble buffs), just above the arctic circle, we’re heading for a true winter wonderland ! This trip encompasses all of the things we’ve come to love.

To start, we have a boat transfer of a couple of hours that gives us time to get used to our surroundings and take in the stunning views. Of course, we do some great skiing and choose our itineraries as we go along, as weather conditions dictate.

We may even go out skiing twice on the same day. We often end up by the sea, and sometimes in small fishing villages, with skis on our feet ! Then it’ll be time to get back to our warm and welcoming rorbu - this is just another "little" detail that makes this trip to the Lofoten so special - without mentioning the spectacular granit cliffs that drop into the the sea and the easily accessible summits that make you feel as if you're on top of the world, just that !

Friends, family or just colleagues at work ?

Please note this itinerary is an example of a ski touring trip with Azimut in the Lofoten, Norway. The guide may adjust certain itineraries and ski areas according to weather and snow conditions as well as participants' abilities. We kindly ask you to respect such decision. We may also change accommodation, with the same standards, depending on logistics and availabilities.

In case practices and customs defined by the local guide authorities change, estimating the reasonable number of clients per guide, for safety reasons, Azimut respects these, even last minute, decisions. Such cases are rare and mostly related to exceptional conditions in the mountains. Therefore some compensation may be requested from your side due to less participants per guide.

This list of clothes is designed to give you an idea of clothes that it may be a good to have with you. No need to have the latest brands nor the latest gear, but if you need to refresh of refill your wardrobe, this guide would be a good start.


- Warm hat or buff/scarf

- 2 pairs of ski goggles and sunglasses with UV factory 4 protective lenses. Photochromic glasses adapt to light intensity, and have filter index up to category 4, they are very useful

- Ski helmet (highly recommended)


- Under layer: breathable long sleeved tops to maintain heat. A tip: merino wool is breathable and has anti-bacterial properties and is therefore less likely to smell as opposed to synthetic fabrics. Take this into consideration if you need to update your wardrobe.

- Middle layer: a light polar or synthetic jacket for an extra layer of heat during breaks

- Outer layer: a Gore-tex or similar type of jacket with a breathable waterproof membrane. Make sure it's lightweight and compact so it doesn't take up too much space in your backpack

- Bottom layer: trousers with a breathable waterproof membrane (Gore Tex or similar) with long side zips allowing air to flow, recommended on climbs

- Hands: light fleece or soft shell gloves, a pair of silk glove liners to go underneath, warm gloves with a breathable and waterproof membrane. Mittens are always a good idea for really cold days of for those of you who feel the cold !

- Swimming gear: it takes up such little space, it would be a shame not to bring it just in case. Avoid swimming shorts or bermudas, they are not usually allowed.


- Ski socks: merino wool socks are breathable and have anti-bacterial properties and are less likely to smell as opposed to those made of synthetic fabrics. Think about them if you need to stock up.

- Slippers / Crocs recommended for evening wear.

  • Before leaving: water the plants, empty the rubbish bin, turn off the water and gas, and tell your partner that you're going to have a good time (not by text message), that you well deserved... If you don't follow the latter recommendation, you'll most probably kick yourself when you get back !
