Description

Situated well above the Arctic Circle, the Lyngen Alps, near Troms, are home to more than 600 mountain peaks that reach 1,000 metres in elevation!

Receiving plenty of high-quality powder all winter long, the region is the perfect place to head for a freeride ski touring adventure!

Join us and over the course of our 8 days together, we’ll explore the stunning  Tamok Valley, ski down jagged peaks and majestic fjords, and get the chance to explore some of the outer isles.

All of this will be made possible thanks to the Pesä, a retired army truck that has been refitted to serve as a mobile ski hut.

Each day, we’ll spend about 5 to 8 hours skiing. We’ll start our adventure in the Tamok Valley, getting used to the skiing conditions before driving farther north into the Lyngen Alps.

After a couple of days skiing these majestic slopes, we’ll head out to do some summit to sea skiing on the various outer islands.

As the trip draws to its end, we’ll return to the Tamok Valley and enjoy a bit more skiing here as well as a traditional sauna.

We will start each day out with breakfast in the Pesä and each evening, we’ll enjoy a three course meal prepared by our own personal chef. After dinner, we will plan our next day’s adventure and spend the evening gazing upwards, looking for the Northern Lights.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this fun, exciting and unique 8-day freeride ski touring adventure in the Lyngen Alps, from Troms.

What people are saying about Bliss Adventure

January, 2020

Great wilderness experience with Hannele and Claudia at Bliss Adventure in mid-January. Beautiful winter wilderness landscape and overnight stay in rustic but very comfortable log cabin. Remote and undisturbed but at the same time not too strenuous and appropriate for beginner/intermediate level skiers. Excellent organization and guiding. Highly recommended.
