Ski Touring with Norway Mountain Guides:
Exploring majestic landscapes, trekking through unbroken snow, thick snowfalls and breathing fresh mountain air. Norway is perhaps best known for two things: Fjords and skiing. Get an unforgettable Norwegian experience by combining the two in one trip.
Our Base Voss / Myrkdalen with an annual snowfall of around five metres, it makes a great alternative to ski touring.
Do you get your skiing kicks from exploring untouched territory, far away from well-prepared skiing slopes? In that case, you have come to the right place. Your options for ski touring adventure outside Bergen, the area of Voss, Myrkdalen, Nærøyfjorden, Kvamskogen and the Hardanger Fjord is just a short drive or train ride away.
There are several peaks to choose from, there are off-piste areas suitable for the experienced skier or for the beginner.
Make a trip with local guide on hand to guide you to the best places. Norway Mountain Guides focus on safe trips, off beaten tracks, and untouched snow. We don’t take you were it is necessary with special equipment as ice axe and rope, but you do need a transceiver/beacon, shovel and probe.
The local guide not only know where to find the best powder, local snow conditions and how they`ll affect where to go. The guide has knowledge about the risk of avalanche, first-aid and navigation
However, departing the marked pistes comes with increased risk. We seek to avoid terrain steeper than 30 degrees. You don’t have to an expert skier, but it does demand being in good physical shape and that you have a reasonable level of skiing skills.
Stay safe and find out about the avalanche risk before you set out. You can check the avalanche forecasts at varsom.no.
