Brief info about the trip

This is a trip for those who enjoy slalom and randonee skiing. You don’t need to be an expert alpine skier with lots of alpine touring (randonee) experience, but you do need to enjoy a challenge.
We will be climbing many altitude metres on our way up the mountain. So some preparation is necessary.
Our mountaineering excursions vary, and they are adapted according to skill level. One day will be spent on an excursion out in the wilderness by dog sled – a true adventure!

Our overnight accommodation – Lyngen Experience Lodge – is perfectly situated, just a short distance to some of the most beautiful peaks in Lyngen. The lodge has its own restaurant, sauna and a small spa. There is also a lovely terrace with an enchanting view of the fjord and mountains, where we can search for the Northern Lights.

Experienced, certified guides, with in-depth knowledge of the local conditions will accompany you on all mountaineering trips.  
Every morning, the guides will brief guests on the day’s activities. Activities will depend on the snow and weather conditions. We will head to the area with the best conditions on that specific day. After the briefing, we’ll pack our equipment and drive to the starting point for the trip.

Skill level

Trips are adapted to the group’s skill level. State your skill level in the registration form: 
– Beginner
– Medium (have gone Randonee skiing at least 5 – 10 times before)
– Expert / Advanced

On dog sledding excursions, we drive in pairs. One person drives while the other is a passenger. A true wilderness adventure.

Most of this trip is included in the price. You only need to book your own airline ticket to Tromsø. 

Note! Limited number of spots – max. 14 participants.
