Bucket List: Summit to Sea in Lofoten, Norway

Bucket List: Summit to Sea in Lofoten, Norway

Norway's Lofoten Archipelago has been in the spotlight a lot lately. From arctic surfing, to skiing under the Northern Lights, the picturesque destination has called to us for a few years. While the mountains aren't huge, the fact that they seem to rise straight out of the sea has us sold, and with warm Gulf Stream air, Lofoten experiences much milder weather than other destinations north of the arctic circle.

For this reason and others, Lofoten has fast become a destination for skiers, cyclists, and surfers keen on experiencing the Northern Lights, Midnight Sun, and the stunning scenery the place has to offer.  

On our bucket list? A trip to the Lofoten Ski Lodge, an operation located in the sleepy village of Kalle. Staff lead touring trips to Vågakallen Mountain, measuring 3094 ft. in elevation. Lodging is in remote fisherman's cabins perched on the Sea. Touring runs from February to May, and the lodge features everything you could need in a place to lay your head after a long day of skiing...rustic food, a sauna, a hot tub, and a bar. 

Itching to get in a few more turns before the season's over? Lofoten Ski Lodge is booking tours until the end of May...
