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!

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
