Day trip on skis on the Øksfjord glacier goes through varied alpine terrain in the far north and contains a lot of altitude and good skiing.

The area are located in the arctic and on the coast where we can have heavy snow, strong winds, sun, windless, powder and corn snow, all in the same day.

We follow different routs on to the glacier based on the conditions, to get the best and safest skiing. The area are scattered with big and narrow valleys that are affected by the nearby glacier with spectacular nunataqs and steep mountainsides.

We arrange trips for fixed groups on the dates that fits for you (minimum 3 participants), and we have pre planed trips on set dates where you can enter and join a group with others.
