Piggtind ascent in the Lyngen Alps


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.

Lyngen Alps

1 Day

Jun - 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.

Mountain Guide

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.

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.
