Our Lyngen Alps Skitouring week above the polar circle in Norway will offer you some of the finest ski touring in Northern Europe. Already for more than 14 years every winter we return to this fascinating place. Our targets in your week will be to climb and ski stunning peaks all around the Lyngen Fjord. In this week we will make a base in Rotsund, it is situated on the northeastern shore of the Fjord and gives perfect access to most of the attractive peaks in the area. In this week we will offer you some of the finest skiing with spectacular views. 

How your trip will proceed

After your arrival at the airport of Tromso, your guide will pick you up in our shuttle van. In a 3 hour drive along spectacular fjords, you will reach our base in Rotsund. We will make you comfortable with your week and install ourselves in the house. The next 6 days will be yours to get to know some of the prime peaks in the area of Lyngen Fjord. Some of the highlights will be the stunning peak of Kagtinden high above the sea, a traverse of Uloya gives incredible views and runs. Right behind our house, we can put the skins on and 1270 vertical meters higher we stand on the peak of Storhaugen and overlook the whole Lyngen Fjord. Reaching home after a long day out a cool beer will refresh you. After 6 unforgettable ski touring days it is time to say good bye to Rotsund. The Saturday morning we will leave for Tromso Airport and fly back home.

Best travel time

Over the past years, it has proven that the best time to go ski touring in the Lyngen Alps is from mid-April to mid-May. At this time of the year the snowpack, which can be quite fragile and delicate earlier in the season, usually is stable. We enjoy the very long daylight…at this time of the year, it does not get dark anymore up here. Also, it is not unusual at this time of the year to find powder snow on the north slopes and spring corn snow on the southern slopes.

Accommodation

Our accommodation for the week is in Rotsund in a nice house with enough space for everybody to feel well and comfortable. Like most of the places up there, this house is a self-catered one. It means that we will prepare all our meals by ourselves. Most of the products will be bought by your guide already up front, but sure some fresh fish and things will be bought together. And then it is also your turn to show some cooking skills. For those who have not so much practice in cooking, they can be helpful with the cleaning afterward.

The minimum number of particpants is 5, the maximum number 8.

Travel preparations

Please note the following three points after your booking:

A good or very good physical shape =>

A realistic self-assessment and an appropriate fitness level is required to join our trips. In order to enjoy long ski days you need to get in shape and train prior to the trip. A good fitness also reduces the risk of injury.

Information about the destination, vaccinations, health =>

Please keep yourself updated about the current (political) situation and country specific particularities of your destination. You can do so by checking the website of the ministry of foreign affairs of your own country.

Travel insurance =>

Please note that there is a potential risk of injury on a ski trip. When travelling abroad several travel insurances are imperative. Besides a travel cancellation insurance we highly recommend a travel health insurance as well as a travel accident insurance. These insurances need to cover potential costs for search and rescue operations and costs for hospital stays etc. It is your own responsibility to make sure you are covered accordingly.

For all of our trips that include a flight, a travel accident and travel health insurance that cover potential costs for search and rescue operations and medical costs (for example hospital stays) is mandatory. The insurance will be queried in our online registration form and we kindly ask you to fill in that information.

Appropriate insurance companies you can find in the internet. Please also check your credit card, eventually the according insurances are included.
