Description

It’s my pleasure to invite you to ski on Senja Island for a week. I have no doubt it will be the trip of a lifetime! 

Senja is the second largest island in Norway. It is located in the province of Tromso, about 350 km north of the Polar Circle. A real paradise for backcountry skiers!

If I had to sum up the main reasons why I’d like to guide you in Senja, I’d list the following ones:

  • It will be a very active tour, where all my guests will make the best turns;

  • Exclusive experience: I will guide a small group of only 4 participants;

  • The most incredible ski descents towards the sea;

  • Unique views of the island and its fjords.

In the west of Senja there is the picturesque fishing village of Mefjordvær. It is a really nice place where you will find amazing high mountain landscapes. It also has one of the most beautiful fjords in the island.

Mefjordvær will not only be our starting point but also our lodging base. We’ll have dinner, rest and share our best stories of the day at an oceanfront hotel of this area: Mefjord Brygge.

At the bottom of this page you’ll find more details of the day by day itinerary. Next confirmed date is March 10th, 2018. The deadline to book your place is February 11th.

So fill out the form and get in touch with me as soon as possible. I’ll be happy to be your guide on this one week ski tour on Senja Island!
