Summit ski tours

Getting to the mountain summit with ocean views on all sides is an incredible experience. We have extensive experience tailoring tours for all ability levels. Feel free to combine the mountain trip with the sea route; travelling by rib, or one of the larger vessels we use on our adventures , and stay in some of the great locations and boutique hotels we work with.

We’ll give you the finest summit experience in the north!


The mountains rise straight out of the sea. The routes start down at the shoreline. As you climb you hear the waves and look down at the turquoise blue sea. Climbing in Northern Norway is incomparable, like being in paradise. In the north you will find some of the most unusual climbing areas in the world. Views of the Vestfjorden and blue mountains from Stetind to Steigen are unforgettable.

Lofoten's dramatic mountain range overlooks the infinite horizon and sky. If you haven’t climbed in Northern Norway, you are in for a mind-blowing treat.

Mountain biking

Take pleasure in the freedom of riding a mountain bike, whether you are roaming on a forest trail, tackling steep mountain terrain from summit to sea or biking in open countryside. Our select team of guides includes both local and certified mountain bike guides who will showcase exceptional routes with magnificent sea views.

For mountain biking, a certified guide is used along with local guides. The certification has been established to set standards for European guides for mountain biking and is monitored by the European Organisation of Mountain Bike Instructor-Guides (EO-MTBing).

Contact us to find routes that suit you and any travel companions.
