Day 1: Welcome to Norway
Start your Norwegian backcountry ski adventure in Oppdal - a small, scenic mountain village that dates all the way back to the Iron Age and is now known as one of the best ski towns in the country. Join your guide for a little orientation and then head to Storlidalen (about 45 minutes away by car) for a short afternoon ski tour under a bright blue sky and rocky peaks.
Day 2: To the fjords!
After an early breakfast, make your way toward the famous Norwegian fjords and the Innerdalen Valley, which locals say is the most beautiful in the nation. A full day of skiing will take you past sharp peaks, deep trenches, and winding mountain roads and over miles of sparkling, powdery, white landscape. In the evening, return to tiny, charming, fjord-side Øksendal for dinner and a night in a cozy mountain lodge.
Day 3: Skiing the fjords
Wake in your charming lodge and indulge in a hearty breakfast before hitting the slopes again for another day of sweeping fjord views, sharp mountain ridges, and endlessly snowy peaks. When you return from the heights of your backcountry ski adventure, don't forget to wander the snow-dusted streets of the little town, take in the nearby views of the fjord, and take some photos of the cute, rustic white-steepled church.
Day 4: The Romsdal Alps
Your fourth day of Norwegian snow sports dawns bright and beautiful in the Romsdal Alps, about two hours from the lodge. Another full day of skiing will take you across some of Norway's most dramatic landscapes, where steep mountain roads snake steeply upward and an unusual series of peaks seem to march toward the sky. Legend here says that these peaks - known as Trolltindane - were actual a bridal procession of trolls that got caught in the sun and turned to stone.
Day 5: A second day in the Romsdal Alps
Another day of staggering peaks, hairpin roads, and beautiful, challenging backcountry skiing awaits. On your last ski day in the Romsdal Alps, ask your guide to point out Trollveggen - Europe's largest vertical cliff, beloved by climbers - and make sure to snap a few final photos for the road. Once you head down from the mountains, it's one last night in a comfortable hotel and then time to make your way home.
Day 6: Departure day
For now, your adventure is at its end. Pack your bags, wave farewell to the stony trolls, and get ready to head home. From Åndalsnes, a scenic train will take you to Dombås, where you can connect to either Oppdal or Oslo.
