Description

The Lyngen Alps are a gorgeous, breathtaking range of slopes and peaks. It is a winter wonderland. And on this 3 day winter activities package, we have designed the perfect adventure for those people that want to see and do as much as they possibly can in the Lyngen Alps, while also getting to enjoy the comforts of a full board, wonderful lodge.

There are 2 different activities we offer to guests on the 3 day package. They include a dog sledding journey and a frozen lakes adventure. Necessary clothing and lunch are provided for both activities.

The dog sledding journey lasts approximately 5 hours, 1.5 hours of which is spent dog sledding. We will take a 30 minute scenic drive to the Resia valley. Once there, we will instruct you how to properly lead a dog sled and "mush" the dogs through the gorgeous winter landscape. Midway through the day, we will stop for an open fire lunch, before concluding the journey, saying good bye to the dogs, and returning to the lodge.

The Frozen lakes adventure lasts 5 hours and involves snowmobiling, snowshoeing and ice fishing. We will visit the high mountain plateau on snowmobile, where the views of the Lyngen Alps are amazing. Afterwards, we will make our way to the the high lake to ice fish. The lake's ice is so thick that you will even be able to start a fire on it and cook your catch!

For anybody that has wanted to comfortably explore and enjoy the Lyngen Alps, this 3 day activities package is for you. Not only will you get to enjoy the amazing activities we have lined up for you during the day, but you will also get to enjoy the unforgettable northern lights every evening as well!

About the guide

I grew up in the north east of England and Scotland until I moved to St.Anton Austria to become both a ski teacher and internationally qualified UIAGM International Mountain Guide, teaching and guiding, skiing, rock and ice climbing and glacier mountaineering.
I set up Piste To Powder Off Piste Skiing in St.Anton Austria which specialises in guided ski adventures with a focus on developing the guests skills in both ski technique and mountain safety. Piste To Powder expanded offering ski adventures to exotic locations around the world from Greenland, Alaska, South America, Russia, Himalayas and Norway. I led these expeditions and loved the combination of wild remote travel and skiing new mountains away from the ski resorts.
The Norwegian program began in 2003 sailing through the fjords and skiing from summit to sea. Amazed by the region of Troms, I bought land and built a lodge to offer guests an all year round base for adventure and comfortable relaxing living in this extraordinary Arctic location. Out of all the many wonderful locations around the world to ski, the Lyngen Alps offered a unique experience found to be second to none.
I'm enthusiastic about mountains and people and driven to deliver a high quality service which will ensure that your visit while at my lodge will be a memorable one.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
