Ski Touring around Narvik describes a wealth of routes in a fabulous landscape for ski enthusiasts on both sides of the Norwegian-Swedish border in Northern Scandinavia. The ski resort of Narvik has the best lift-accessed skiing in Scandinavia, while Riksgränsen, right at the border is an international favourite for spring skiing. Around these ski resorts there is a fantastic mountain landscape with a lot of variation in the character of the ski terrain. Ski Touring around Narvik covers 82 mountains and six traverses in Narvik, Skjomen, Ballangen, Efjorden-Tysfjorden, Bogen-Grovfjorden, Gratangen-Lavangen, Hunddalen, Riksgränsen, Björkliden and Abisko. Several world class photographers have contributed to the book.
