BEST TIME AND SNOW CONDITIONS
Weather in February is more uncertain than March in April. February is really hard to predict and quite variable: it could be icy and cold. or you could have lots of powder and sun. You could actually ski on hard neve and ice, but skiing on ice is more dangerous. Usually there is no powder in February.
March and April could be too warm -with snowline at 300m- or it could be great. In contrast to February, in March and April you get a melted layer on top, which makes your skiing almost limitless.

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!
