YOU WILL GO HERE
The ultimate Nordic experience. Norways landscape, with its beautiful fjords and amazing mountains, is already pretty spectacular on itself. Combine this with ski touring and sailing and it’s definitely a spectacular and unique adventure. Northern Norway is the perfect place for backcountry skiing and is acknowledged for steeper alpine terrain. We offer guided expeditions in Lofoten, Senja, Lyngen and partly in Kvaloya.
The Lofoten Islands showcases some of the most untamed and pristine nature that Norway has to offer. With its alpine mountains and towering peaks up to 1000m high, this region present skiers with a multitude of natural pistes, providing a wide variety of skiing terrain for skiers of all skill levels. Whether you’re a seasoned mountaineer or a novice seeking to embrace the raw beauty of the Norwegian wilderness.
Senja, is situated between the Lofoten Islands and the Lyngen Peninsula and is renowned as the ‘mini-Norway’, due to its remarkable diversity of landscapes. As you sail along its shores, you’ll encounter a rugged coastline adorned with towering peaks, deep fjords and picturesque beaches. In a single day, one can conquer one, two, or even three summits, with the highest point being Breitinden, soaring to an elevation of 1001 meters above sea level.
The Lyngen Alps are likely the most famous ski touring area in Norway. This peninsula is roughly 90 kilometers long and 20 kilometers wide, with its highest point reaching 1,833 meters above sea level. The landscape features glaciers, steep couloirs and expansive bowls. Peaks typically skied in the Lyngen Alps are at elevations below 1,200 meters and the descents can extend all the way to sea level. It’s a truly inspiring place to ski.
Kvaløya is an island that is located just outside Tromsø. It has a stunning, predominantly mountainous landscape. Kvaløya is almost divided into three sections by the Erstfjorden and Kaldfjorden fjords. The highest peak is Store Blåmann, which reaches 1,044 meters. Kvaløya gives the impression of being a remote, untamed place and this atmosphere only enhances the joy of skiing there.
