There are many good reasons to spend a week skitouring out of the most northern city of Tromso. The city, which now has over 75,000 inhabitants, is located at 69° north latitude, directly on the sea. In the nearest surrounding islands there are hundreds of peaks, which are just perfect for ski touring. In other words, nowhere else in the north of Norway there is such a variety and choice for ski touring. The nice thing about a touring week in Tromsø is that you can enjoy the flair of the city. Neverending daylight stimulates to stroll around, to visit cafes or museums and to mingle with the people in the evening. To some other guests in the stylish hotel we might look a bit strange leaving in the early morning with our skis on our backs. In summary, this trip will appeal to those ski tourers who are interested in great skitouring straight out of a city and enjoy very good cusine as well as some evening entertainment. All the ski tours that we reach are rich in variety with stunning views into fjords and open sea.
Process of the trip
Pick up at the airport of Tromsø by your mountain guide. Short drive to the hotel in the city center. Every day your guide will decide at short notice depending on weather and conditions where the target of the day will be. The driving time to the starting points is normally 30-40 minutes, sometimes it is worthwhile to take a longer journey in order to reach an extraordinary mountain. After returning in the afternoon there is time to stroll and explore the city itself. In the evening you eat out, the many good restaurants impress with very good quality. The journey back home begins on Saturday with the transfer to the airport.

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.
