Discover Senja, a unique corner of Norway in the Troms County, on a week-long ski touring adventure with Iraitz, an AEGM-certified mountain guide.
Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec
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.

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!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
