The ski touring is done in open groups where the maximum group size is 12 persons (max. 6 persons per guide). This is a great opportunity to meet other “like-minded” skiers.

Get to know our guide Espen Nordahl 

Mountains, hiking, and the outdoors have been a great passion throughout Espen’s life. This adventurer from Tromsø fell in love with the Lofoten mountains in the early 90s and has ever since often visited the islands to experience the many opportunities here. Today the Lofoten Islands are Espen’s home and the mountains his one and only true love. 

Long and great experience and knowledge
For many years, Espen has been offering guiding and avalanche courses, he’s also worked as an avalanche forecaster for NVE/varsom.no for 4 years. He’s the author of the book Ski Touring in Troms, and co-editor of Safe Ski Touring in Norway. In addition, he’s written a number of articles and reports as well as given many lectures. In other words, Espen is a highly experienced guide with a lot of knowledge - our expert. 

Conscious planning and safety is the key
Things were about to go horribly wrong in 1998 when Espen and a group of friends were on ski tour togheter. One was buried in a landslide, but excavated alive. This experience made Espen reinforce his thoughts about the importance of safety and is therefore very strict with all arrangements regarding planning and the implementation of the trip. 

It is important that all participants feel safe during the excursion and are left with a good feeling after a completed tour. - Espen Nordahl
