To some Narvik is famous for its world war 2 history where battles were fought to secure the supply of iron ore coming from Kiruna, to others it is home to the biggest vertical ski area in Scandinavia with incredible touring opportunities. To us it is the perfect combination of sea to summit skiing with one of the shortest distances from sea to high alpine terrain in Norway. Add in the possibility of some amazing Northern lights and you are in for an unforgettable ski experience.
Please note: the dates have changed since printing the 1718 Freshtracks brochure from a Saturday departure to a Sunday departure to accommodate more convenient flight times.
