Narvik Mountain Guides are specialist in Ski touring in Northern Scandinavia in winter. We are based in Herjangen just north of Narvik in Ofoten, Nordland, Norway.
From here we are close to our favorite Ski lift in Scandinavia – Narviksfjellet. Here we work with Off-piste guiding from the ski lift.
We have a long experience of the area around Narvik and consider this the best ski touring terrain in Scandinavia.
We also guide and do week trips to Kebenkaise and Sarek areas in Sweden. We do Ski and sail trips all along the Northern coast. We know the best boats and runs. We do week trips to Lyngen.
Our daily work however, is ski touring in the Ofoten, Narvik, Lavangen, Harstad, Gratangen area. Here we have the the most mountainus island in Norway – Andrörja, inland- and see climate for choice of wheather and easy access to hundreds of daytours.
We are internationally certified Mountain Guides. This is the highest and most demanding certification in the professional Mountain world. If you are interested in the education i Norway, take a look at the Nordtind website. Read my Norwegian blog about some thoughts on guiding in Norway.
