The picturesque Meløy Alps offers some of the wildest off-piste skiing in Northern Norway!

The Meløy Alps near Glomfjord have been portrayed in the skiing documentary “Supervention 2”. These jagged majestic mountains beckon you to summit climbs in one of Norway’s most scenic areas. If you yearn for virgin snow in a pristine mountain wilderness, then this is the adventure for you and your friends!

Meløy Adventure’s expert guides will take you to the best peaks, carefully choosing descents that are especially suited to your group. The classic peaks include Tverrfjell, Istinden, Ronsfjellet and Middagstuva, and are quite varied. Each of these offers unique off-piste downhill skiing challenges! On any given day, your experienced guide will determine which peaks will provide exciting but safe skiing, and are best suited to the desires and skill set of your group.

During these adventurous days, you will be staying at Støtt Old Trading Post, which has been restored and upgraded to offer visitors all modern amenities. From our island base, we’ll race across the waves in a RIB raft to reach the pristine snow slopes of the Meløy Alps. This hour-long crossing is itself a memorable adventure! After you return from the day’s adventure, you might well be tempted to an invigorating plunge in the sea from the jetty. 

As a guest, you will have the opportunity to experience our thriving and close-knit island community, immersing yourself in Helgeland’s colourful coastal culture. Our popular après-ski session features local seafood and storytelling from the golden heyday of Støtt Old Trading Post.
