Yes, it can be very cold, snowy and stormy, but it can also be an unforgettable experience. See the light come back slowly and paint the sky with red colours. See an amazing show of Northern Lights dancing in the sky, before you go back to your tent to recall the great time spent with people who share the same passion. Let the Moon lead you and your teammates forward, with no other people in sight. It is just you and the nature. The dark season magic will enchant you for a once-in-a-lifetime skiing experience.

Day by day

Day 1 – Sundsfjord-Fellvatnet (15km)
Early in the morning, we drive to Sundsfjord, where we start our adventure. During the first day, we follow a snow scooter route through the mountain area. Expect to meet some reindeers on the way. At the end of the day, we leave the snow scooter route and enter the real wilderness. We ski through birch forest, where we put up our first camp, next to the Fellvatnet lake and the Fellvasstua cabin. In the evening, we make a campfire and, if we are lucky, we enjoy the colourful Northern Lights while having a nice dinner together.

Day 2 – Fellvatnet-Glomfjord (15km)
After breakfast, we pack our equipment onto the pulkas, and set out towards Lahko National Park borders. We continue skiing through thick birch forest and cross it during the day. Soon after, we enter a flat, open mountain area. Don’t expect to meet any people here. It’s the pure wilderness and us. With good weather, we are able to see Norway’s second largest glacier, Svartisen.,
During the last day, we slowly head back towards the civilization. We ski to the Namnlausvatnet lake and enjoy the beautiful scenery in front of us. We leave Lahko National Park behind, and along a minor road we enter a tunnel and continue towards Fykan. Here we are picked up, our minds full of beautiful moments we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.
