Norway has a mix of locations for backcountry skiing including undulating terrain (such as the Hardangervidda) and challenging steeper slopes and ski peaks in areas such as the Sunnmore Alpes, Romsdalen and the Lofoten Islands and the Lyngen Alps in the North.

Consider hiring a guide or going on a guided trip if you are unfamiliar with the ski terrain. Guides are focussed on navigation, route finding, good weather forecasts and are very attentive to managing risks including avalanches and crevasses.
