Description

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.

About the 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.
