Lyngen Alps, Norway

The Lyngen Alps in Norway are world famous for spectacular scenery, aurora borealis, epic skiing and pristine landscapes, all far from the crowds and deep in the wilderness of Northern Norway. Situated high above the Arctic Circle, the Lyngen peninsula is made up of a north and south side, measuring approximately 90km long and 15km wide.

Lyngen is truly off the beaten track. There exists no lift infrastructure so all skiing is 100% human powered by ski touring up to different summits each day from our sea-side lodge. Skiing down in the afternoon with endless views never gets old, nor does relaxing in the hot tub watching the sunset over the glimmering ocean waves.

YOUR ADVENTURE STARTS HERE

WHO IS THIS FOR?

You will need previous ski touring experience to get the most out of this experience. Ideally you will have done some previous ski tours over terrain that requires steep kick turns and some boot packing. A good example of this would be the Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt or our ski touring intro trip (If booking as a group). Your ski ability must also be high, so that you are comfortable skiing on all types of snow. The weather and conditions in Norway changes fast, so it's important to be able to deal with it safely and to have fun.

Your fitness level must be solid, and you should be able to ski tour 1500 vertical meters per day. It's worth noting that all of the ski tours will begin more or less at sea level so you won't have the altitude factor. This makes it the equivalent to about 1000 verticals per day in the Alps.

WHAT TO EXPECT

HERE'S YOUR ITINERARY 

Please note this is a suggested itinerary only. While we try and stick to the tried and tested itinerary below, the mountain and the weather sometimes has other ideas. You must be capable of sticking to the required group pace in order to complete the tour. If ability or fitness is hindering the trip, you may be asked to drop out of some of the longer days.

  • Day 1:
    Arrival Day

    Travel day. Arrive in Tromso and be picked up at the airport by our local guide. You will have time to sort out any rental equipment before driving to the lodge. Dinner and guide briefing at the lodge.

  • Day 2:
    First Day

    After breakfast we'll head out and discover the current conditions and general ability of the group. We'll ski something classic nearby, to get a feel of the conditions - something like Rundfjellet or Steinfjellet.

  • Day 3:
    South Side

    Today we can head further out and explore the south side of the North Island. There is a fun apres-ski at a lodge at the end of the tour where we can stop by.

  • Day 4:

    Open day for the group to decide on a big objective, or to perhaps ski something that wasn't possible earlier in the week.

  • Day 7:
    One Last Adventure
