Description

Join me for an unforgettable ski touring week in Senja, a hidden corner in Norway with beautiful skiing routes!

Senja is located very close to the city of Narvik, in northern Norway, between Tromso and the Lofoten islands. It is not such a popular skiing destination because people mistakenly think that the not-so-high mountains don’t serve as a perfect skiing place. However, we will prove them wrong. The solitude and immensity of the area provide the perfect place for a relaxing and exciting ski touring adventure. Besides, we’ll get to see charming little fishermen villages that make the landscape even prettier. And we might even get invited to eat delicious fresh fish!

The weather in the northern region of the country is not as cold as countries in the same latitude as Greenland or Alaska, but it can be chilly year-round. Therefore, make sure to review the list of equipment detailed below. If you don’t have everything, we can help you rent whatever you are missing.

Ready for an exciting Norwegian adventure? Then click the request button and start packing your bags! This is a trip you’ll never forget.

This trip must be booked at least one month prior to the requested departure date.

If you are looking for more trips in Norway, you can also follow me to Lofoten or the Lyngen Alps!

About the guide

I'm an AEGM-certified mountain guide from Spain.

My work and my passion for the mountains have taken me all over the world.

I spent 8 years leaving in my van as a ski bum in La Grave, in the French Alps, enjoying the steep skiing there.

I also spent 5 years guiding ski touring, alpine climbing and rock climbing in Norway (Lofoten, Senja, Lyngen Alps, Kvaløya, Stetind), where you can feel the power of nature like in very few other places on Earth!

But it was in the Spanish Pyrennes, my own backyard, where I grew as a mountainer and skier. Here, you can enjoy some tapas and a good wine after a crazy heliski day!

You are very welcome to contact me to enjoy an amazing trip or adventure in the mountains!
