Tore, an IFMGA-certified guide, takes you on a 1-day ascent in the Lyngen Alps. The objective? Reaching the summit of Piggtind, an iconic pyramid-shaped mountain in Troms county.
Jun, Jul, Aug
In the southern section of the Lyngen Alps, lies one of the most iconic peaks in Troms county: Piggtind (1505 m). Would you like to join me on a challenging 1-day ascent this summer?
Boasting a distinctive pyramid shape, Piggtind is a classic climb which demands a very good physical shape.
After a one and a half hour approach from the parking, we’ll reach the base of the mountain. The first part of the ascent is scrambling. Then, the exposed ridge demands using ropes, while the final 100 meters is pure climbing.
The whole trip takes roughly 12 hours. From the top of Piggtind you’ll enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding peaks of the Lyngen Alps.
In case you don’t feel quite prepared for this ascent, I can provide a half-day training, where you’ll get to practice advanced techniques and decide whether you are up for the challenge or you’d like to set a different goal.
Are you ready to explore the beautiful Norwegian mountains? This classic climb is a great starting point! Send me a request and join me on this 1-day Piggtind ascent.
- Guiding fee
These are the prices for the half-day practice:
1 person: 2000 NOK.
Group of two: 1500 NOK pp.
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.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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
