Otertind is an iconic 1354 m peak of the Lyngen Alps. It’s certainly one of the most beautiful mountains in Norway and a fantastic climb even for those with little experience! 

This Norwegian peak  —sometimes referred to as the ‘Northern Europe Matterhorn’— is located in Storfjord and lies on the picturesque Signaldalen valley.

You don’t need to have previous climbing experience to climb Otertind. The terrain is steep, but provides easy climbing and scrambling. The whole trip demands between 6 to 10 hours. 

I’ll provide all the gear you need for this ascent. It’s important that you bring good shoes to walk on steep sections outside the tracks.

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm a local certified IFMGA mountain guide in the Lyngen Alps, living in a town called Signaldalen. 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.
