Lyngen, Norway – the most beautiful ski touring in the world.
Far up in the northern part of Norway there is a peninsula called Lyngen. On this peninsula, and on the islands around, beautiful mountains rise out of the ocean and give us great opportunities for ski touring. The view over the fjords is indescribable and the shapes of the mountains offer superb skiing.
For ski touring in Lyngen we can use land based accommodation (as proposed in this program) or we can stay onboard a sailboat and at the same time use it for transport between the different ski tours. If you prefer the second alternative please check out http://www.mountainguide.se/default2.asp?Id=27&languageId=44
The following is a standard program. It may be adjusted due to snow conditions, tide, weather and wind. Our goal is to arrange a trip that will give you best possible value.
Day 1, Sunday
Your guide meets you at the airport in Tromsö. We go to Lyngen in a minivan.
Day 2, Monday
Our first tour day will be spent in the heart of Lyngen on one of the peaks close to Lyngseidet. No matter which tour we do there will be a lot of "wow" and "it is sooooo beautiful" coming from your lips. Make sure to bring your camera, this is one of the most beautiful ski tours in the world.
Day 3, Tuesday
Storgalten, "The big pig". It may not sound all that impressive but it is a beautiful mountain. 1200 meters high with skiing straight down to the fjord. Look at the pictures and you will begin to understand – but to really get it you will have to be there!
Day 4, Wednesday
By now we should be ready for a longer tour. We do have to let weather and snow conditions lead the way. But we have several nice options to choose between. Should the weather be changeable at the coast we can explore the beautiful valley of Tamok.
Day 5, Thursday
If the group is interested we arrange transportation by boat to one of the islands outside of Lyngen. This IS ski touring by the sea, there is no way you can ever get closer.
Day 6, Friday
Our fifth day on skis. We might feel it in our legs, so we adapted the days tour after the groups fitness.
Day 7, Saturday
We continue to explore the Lyngen area. On a clear day there will be sights never forgotten. Saturday night will be our last in Lyngen.
