Ersfjord is a fjord in the island of Kvaløya, in the Tromso municipality, in northern Norway. It is surrounded on both sides by high mountains falling right into the water. This 2-day ridge traverse of Ersfjord is an amazing long climb that takes us along the entire Ersfjord.

Our adventure begins in the little village of Rekvik, on the west side of the island, with the Skamtind summit, and finishes at Blåmann (1044m), the highest peak on the island. During the whole traverse we climb 2800 vertical meters, covering a distance of 16 kilometres.

This spectacular climb follows narrow ridges, summits and pinnacles along the fjord, until we reach Blåmann. Please note some parts of the ridge are very exposed and will require roped climbing.

Along the traverse, we will also pass other mountains, like Storstolpan, Brattbergtinden, Store Hollenderen, Brattbergtinden, Styrmannstind, Melketind, Zappfetoppen and many more.

If you want to be part of this amazing ridge traverse, send me a request. Book your trip and we will start planning this great climb in Tromso. You can also check out this trip Climbing Otertind in the Lyngen Alps that I also guide.





About the guide

I'm a local certified IFMGA mountain guide based in Narvik. I've always enjoyed being in the outdoors since my childhood when my parents introduced me to this world. I think it's important that I facilitate parents to be able to bring the same experience for their children too!

My career (!) in the mountains started at the age of 12, when I started climbing, in particular long alpine climbs on ice, snow and rock. I'd also been competing in ski racing and cross country skiing since I was little.

My passion for climbing took me to different corners of the world; to the Alps, Peru, USA and Patagonia. However, my heart was always set in Norway and it also reaffirmed how amazing the mountains in Norway were even in comparison to the great mountain ranges of the world.
My goal is to share these local beauties in a safe manner with the mountain lovers of the world.

I like the diversity of activities in the mountains and I like them all throughout the season, let it be mountain biking, skiing, climbing or hiking. I guide ski touring, alpine climbing, rock climbing and mountain biking.
