Description

Discover the wild beauty that lives in the Arctic and spend three days on a multi-sport expedition in the Lyngen Alps! Under the guidance of seasoned professionals with an in-depth local knowledge, you will be taking part in ski touring, ice climbing, and sea fishing activities for full immersion in the unique Norwegian beauty of a unique and amazing landscape!

The Lyngen Alps are located in Northern Norway, set across Scandinavian islands in the Norwegian Sea. In an area that is often associated with the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun, the Lyngen Alps are also a vast and diverse landscape that is home to remarkable skiing conditions, world-class sea fishing, and frozen adventures of every shape and size.

Your program is designed to give you a taste of the winter sports of northern Scandinavia, providing three days for ski touring the majestic peaks, fishing the iconic waters, and climbing its ice falls. The all-inclusive program lets us handle the logistics while you focus on having a fun, relaxing, and completely satisfying experience.

Based out of comfortable lodging on the island of Uloya, we will devote one day for exploring and skiing around its terrain. Objectives like Blatinden (1,142m), Uloytinden (1,114m), and Kjelvagtinden (1,104m) are popular tours, with untouched powder to ski and a combination of thrilling runs that head right to the coast.

Another day will be dedicated to neighboring islands, taking a ferry to the surrounding Lyngen Peninsula for pleasant time in both the boat and the snow. The safety equipment is included – you just need to bring your passion for adventure. We can even enjoy ice climbing in the area. With visits to Ice, Blue, Isvannet, and Blavannet Lakes, you will be enchanted by the frozen beauty of the terrain. There are ice cascades that can reach 500 meters.

A third day will be reserved for a sea fishing excursion, complete with all of the fishing equipment you need to enjoy an afternoon on the water. Cod, catfish, and halibut make this area their home, so a plethora of catches await just below the surface. Keep your eyes peeled for reindeer and elk as you take on the landscape that is bound to leave you speechless.

Your itinerary can be modified to suit your needs and abilities, so let us know what you are looking for in your trip and we will tailor it specifically for you. Each night will be spent in the relaxing and delightful accommodations on Uloya. Unwind in comfort while preparing for your next day out in the Arctic and rehashing the exciting memories you just made.

You should be a competent skier in good physical shape for this program. Any previous experience is an asset, as is the mental fortitude to take on the northern reaches of Norway for three days.

Book this unforgettable all-inclusive winter sports program NOW and take your talents to the Lyngen Alps for three days of guided ski touring, sea fishing, and ice climbing in the gorgeous Arctic of Norway!

The Lyngen Outdoor Center is located in Norway´s far north, in the eastern part of the island of Uløya.

Located just 500km beyond the Arctic circle and surrounded by stunning fjords (including the famous Lyngen fjord), Uløya is a dream setting to practice a wide range of activities (ski touring, climbing and hiking are an every day occurrence here).

The Lyngen Outdoor Center team is made up of IFMGA-certified guides and outdoor lovers only. We are skiers, climbers and anglers. Our expeditions have taken us all around the world, including Himalaya, the Tian Shan Range, Patagonia, Madagscar and Mali, to name a few. We created this place to share our knowledge and passion with you.

You won't have trouble finding us: the only route on this part of the island leads straight to us. You can take a ferry to get here or we can pick you up in our "water taxi".

Our very comfortable apartments are located just 50 meters away from the water line. They offer everything you'll need for a skiing or fishing trip with your friends, including a drying room. Our boats are some of the most modern in all of the Lyngen area and a large sized pier is located just 50m away from your accommodation.

Come explore the unbelievable Arctic. We'll be happy to welcome you!
