Best season for alpine ski trips is March – April. The area around Norfolda, only half an hour by boat from Manshausen, offers great conditions for long days up and down snow-covered mountain slopes. Typical height of the mountains in Steigen is 700-1000 metres. There is even a glacier in Steigen, Helldalsisen, at 1320 metres. Several of the summits nearby are only accessible by boat.
