This 9-day road and ski trip is starting by the fjords and guides you through spectacular landscapes of Western Norway, aka Fjord Norway. A spectacular skiing holiday to explore snowy powder mouintans, norwegian culture and nature.”
Norway has so far been able to stay a hidden secret on the global radar for ski destinations. This has led to a unique environment, where mountains are with fewer crowds, more fresh powder, and filled with a seemingly endless amount of pristine wilderness experiences.
Join us for a skiing holiday to explore this last frontier of culture, nature and more.
Our 9-day road trip starts in Bergen, otherwise known as the Gateway to the Fjords. From here we travel through the spectacular landscapes of Western Norway – a varying nature that combines scenic farmland, vast plateaus, towering mountains and crystal clear rivers.
THE FJORD POWDER HIGHWAY
The journey operates as a one-way, and will be divided among some of the country’s top ski destinations:
These ski resorts are considered powder paradises and showcase some of the best conditions, views and culture of Norway’s fjord region, and our ski trip eventually ending in the beautiful city of Ålesund.
If the Norse Gods give us favourable weather conditions, along the way we may even get to witness the indescribable light show put on by the famous Aurora Borealis.
As a local tour operator with a deep love for Norway, it comes without question that our multi-day ski tour offers much more than just skiing. As we explore quaint villages and small towns, the journey will also offer powerful fjord landscapes, cultural history, traditional food, local beer, and inspiring stories that will stick with you for a lifetime.
Serving small and intimate group of like-minded people who value quality time spent in the mountains, the journey’s goal will be fine-tuned at the start of the trip. This will allow us to focus on what type of skiing we collectively prefer to pursue, be that days spent on the resort slopes, chasing fresh white powder, or working up a sweat in the backcountry.
Ski trip in Norway, the no.1 skiing holiday in Northern Europe.

F.A.Q. - NORWAY SKI ROAD TRIP with Outdoor Norway and our answers.
When does your season start and end?
We start skiing as soon as the snow is on the mountains, and up until the snow falls ends! This is usually between the start of Dec to the end of April. It’s all depending on Mother Nature!
What to bring with me?
An explicit list of what to bring will be sent out to travelers before the tour. In most cases, it includes a recommended clothing and gear lists like:
Ski jacket and pants, hardshell, gloves, hat, hiking boots
Woolen underlayers and socks
Snacks & water
Skin protection against cold
Do we need to be physically fit to go skiing?
We recommend that all of our guests be in good physical health.
If you have a medical issue but you still want to go skiing, we always recommend you check with your doctor first.
Inquiry with us if you have further questions.
Are any of the skiing trips suitable for seniors?
There is no maximum age limit for our backcountry skiing tours – so long as you’re physically fit you can join!
Can I bring my own skis?
Only if they have a touring binding that allows the heel to be released for hiking uphill with skins.
Will split-board loose performance?
No, in powder most riders do not notice a performance drop compared to a solid board. In hard, icy snow, however, there is definitely a difference.
Does this tour fits for Snowboarders?
Yes, and you’ll have to hike uphill on snowshoes and carry the board on your backpack with strong strap and attachment points.
Split-snowboards are recommended because they are much more efficient on the way up.
Should I tip my guide?
Tip is not a regular thing in Norway as it’s in USA. Your guide works hard to ensure that you have a fun, yet safe skiing adventure and always committed to the Outdoor Norway high standard guided tour.
Tip is widely accepted as the industry norm; and tipping is always appreciated but never expected. It stays totally at your own discretion.
If your trip is cancelled due to COVID, choose free between date changes, account credit or full refund.
