Lyngen Alps

4 Days

Description

Join me in this ski touring trip to the Lyngen Alps in the discovery of gorgeous snow powderly Northern landscapes. We will spend a week in the Norway fjords skiing through out-of-the-way locations.

During this expedition we are going to see both the sea and splendorous mountain peaks of 1000 to 1400 meters.

The beautiful fjords and islands, with its snow-covered surfaces, make the Lyngen Alps the perfect place to visit.

Currently, many passionate skiers consider it their favorite destination.

Throughout the trip, each day will follow a certain ski touring plan.

The trip price’s includes breakfast, transfer to and back from the point of departure and dinner.

However, we will take turns to prepare the meals so as to avoid paying for expensive plates at restaurants.

There is also going to be some time to relax and share our experiences in the Lyngen Alps.

On a typical ski touring day, we will follow practically the same routine.

First, we will depart from the Hytte. Then, we will get on a car and drive up to the starting points of the tour. These are very frequently by the sea shore.

The expedition will commence by going upwards for about 800 to 1200 meters, equal to 3 to 5 hours walking.

Once at the top, the ski touring descent starts. We will traverse a different track every day.

After a long skiing day, we will always go back to the Hytte to rest and relax.

Some of the peaks that we can reach are Nordfjellet (786m), Kagtinden (1163m), Lavangstinden (1215m), Storgalten 1219m and other.

Of course, to take part of this excursion you must have skiing knowledge and be able to walk for long period without problems.

Also, you have to be able to carry your backpack with everything needed for the whole duration of the tours.

So, hurry up and sign up for this ski touring week in the Lyngen Alps of Norway. I’ll be waiting for your contact. I’ll be a pleasure to be your guide and accompany you in the discovery of this location well-known for its beauty and snowy landscapes.
