Why should I choose Tromso for my Backcountry Skiing adventure?

Famed Norwegian fjords

The landscape of Norway was once completely covered in thick ice sheets during the last ice age. As the thick layers of ice started to shift, it carved out the deep valleys that now dominate the terrain of Norway. As the ice started to melt it filled the valleys, forming the famous fjords of Norway. Now it forms the picturesque background to some of the world’s best backcountry skiing.

Arctic wonderland

Beyond the Arctic Circle are wild and remote regions of Norway that are home to mountains that rise from the icy waters, part of the Lyngen Alps. The mountain range parallels the Lyngen fjord with many peaks rolling to almost 2,000 meters above sea level. Its alpine character lures adventurous skiers that are in search for exciting and fresh slopes. Backcountry skiing here is truly unique.

Arctic wildlife

The northern region of Norway provides some of the greatest varieties of wildlife on the continent of Europe. Its arctic landscapes, icy coastline and thick forest shelter a bunch of species. The symbolic polar bear wanders Svalbard, while the Walrus rests along the fjord shoreline. And the spotted lynx lurks in the forest as the arctic fox sifts through the frosted glaciers. Tromso thrives with wildlife.

Uloya is a trip of a lifetime. You find surreal beauty, natural elements at their chore where sea, mountains and skies confound, and shared passion from the hosts. Our guide Pavel was super professional and friendly. Artur, the main host loves to share his passion for nature, sport and good food. Explore Share was top class as they integrated our demand for an outdoor expedition very well and drafted out this incredible option very quickly. Easy access for follow up made us feel just good. Go for it.


My sister and I did a day of ski touring in Narvik with Marius. It was such a great day. We left he Gratangen hotel at 9am and returned at 4pm. The mountain was only 15min from the hotel and was the perfect one day adventure. The snow quality was awesome, it was good weather and we had the entire mountain to ourselves. Marius tailored the trip to our ski level perfectly and was very patient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend guided ski touring in Narvik with Marius!! :)



Very good trip, Fredrik takes you on a real adventure and is the perfect guide ! We recommend greatly !



We had a really great time with Fredrik you was very knowledgeable and helpful and also very flexible. We can definitely recommend going on tour with him. The only small citicism (which is really too strong a word here) is that it would be nice to receive more info planned tour in more detail beforehand, but most likely we would just have needed to ask more directly. Definitely a thumbs up from us!



We had a wonderful trip and were spoiled by all people over there, Artur was a great organizer and treated us like friends, Marcin was a perfect guide and always helpful and friendly, Pawel was the perfect cook who spoiled us with delicious food, Mike drove us everywhere and gave us always a save feeling, and also the other helping hands were all friendly and lovely. We hast a great time. Also the house was perfect for us and very nicely designed. The side program very good and also there the guides and staff friendly. Ding sledge touring was effectively too short for the price, but it was nevertheless beautiful. Snowscooters as well and the day on the water by boat a perfect break! So, all in whole a perfect holiday thanks to the professional and friendly staff!
