Type of Trip
I invite you to join me in these outdoor activities in the fjords of Finnmark, for a few days in a unique and wild environment, where the scenery is breathtaking, where we can spend some time to appreciate what surrounds us …!
Whether you are looking for a sports challenge, a moment of relaxation, discovery … this is the place for you!
I have come to Finnmark for several years, both in fall and winter as in summer and spring. This area is so fantastic because of its beauty… and besides, it is empty of tourists. I like to introduce my friends and customers on its discovery. I have made great friendships with locals who enjoy sharing their place, their passion… with those who are passing by.
The sea is omnipresent in these places, wherever you are, you can see it. The fjords of Finnmark are narrower than elsewhere, of between 800 and 1500 meters. These are grafted to the true alpine landscape, ideal for ski touring.
In Finnmark, we are in the heart of a beautiful duality. In the north, we have fjords and mountains; in the south, we have the large Laponia elevations, populated by Lapps who raise their reindeer.
Coming here is a unique opportunity to contact the authenticity.
We will have the opportunity to do several activities, depending on your desires and the date in which you come. Some possible options are:
– Cross-country skiing, telemark or splitboard (November to June)
– The Fatbike (snow biking)
– Hiking with or without snowshoes
– Dog sledding
– Kayak and Stand Paddle
If you come between October and March, we will have the chance to watch the aurora borealis together. We can also do some of these activities during the night, using very powerful headlamps developed by a friend of mine.
Depending on the number of participants, you will stay in a small house at the edge of the water (look at the pictures) or in a farm inhabited by Norwegian friends.
I invite you to contact me if you are tempted by the beautiful landscapes of the north and this customized plan. I would be pleased to help you discover this region that I love very much!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund.Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
