Really what we hope with this program is that our customers enjoy a mountain skiing in an idyllic place besides knowing the nature, food and traditions of this place

The ski programs in the Lofoten Islands are born from our dream of skiing in this wonderful place. After years of coming to ski on our own, it makes it impossible not to go back year after year.

Today we are proud to have the Lofoten Playground Lodge that offers all the comforts and to have a magnificent team.
