Enjoy a full week of pure ski touring in Senja, Norway's second largest island. A certified mountain guide will help you find the best slopes all the way to the sea.
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!
Flight from Zurich to Tromso. Here we will drive to the Melfjord Brygge accommodation (3,5 hours approx.)
Ski touring days on Senja Island. We’ll look for the most beautiful tours together, depending on weather and snow conditions. Thanks to our own vehicle we are flexible and we can get to different starting points.
The island offers a variety of ski tours between 700 – 1100 meters of altitude.
Our last day on the island. After breakfast we’ll drop our luggage in the bus and take the last ski tour in Senja. Then, we must continue to Tromso. Finally, we’ll spend the night in a hotel close to the airport.
After breakfast we’ll drive to the airport and fly back home.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
