Description

I invite you to an unforgettable ski touring experience in the Lyngen Alps, at the heart of one of the best skiing areas in the world.

If you could invent the most perfect ski touring venue, the island of Uløya in the north of Norway would be the result.

I invite you to take 1 minute to watch this short video which has been shot in May 2017 by a group of skiers I have guided there.

Nowhere else in the world it is possible to find thousand-meter slopes, inclined at almost any angle, perfect for experts or beginners alike, and falling right into the dark blue waters of the fjords.

During Spring, I am based at the Lyngen Outdoor Center lodge on Uløya Island, at the foot of Blåtinden (1142 m). It’s actually a very remote location, in the northern end of the famous Lyngen Fjord.

I offer 7-day trips (or any other length upon request) for groups between 3 and 6 people.

Depending on snow and weather conditions we can choose between ski-and-sail, stationary tours or driving to the mainland.

Skiing conditions in this place are mostly outstanding, with lots of fresh snow and slopes for every difficulty. The air is very dry and snow hardly gets compressed, so we have perfect powder snow almost all the time.

In late spring, especially by the end of April and May, the surface is perfect. This is because the snow that has melted during the day is frozen again at night. This creates an ideal sliding layer several centimeters thick.

Every ski-tour starts right at the doorstep of our house. As a matter of fact, a 15 km trip takes us direct to the top of Blåtinden (1142). Once there, we can ski straight down to our front door, and arrive just in time for a cold beer and a hot sauna.

Besides this, we may continue along Uløytinden (1114) and Kjelvagtinden (1104) skyline. This way, we can complete the Great Traverse of Uløya, one of the best tours in Lyngen.

And if you want something different, we can take a boat trip to explore the neighboring islands of Kågen and Arnøya. 

In fact, we will have a modern, safe boat (8.5 m or 7.2 m, 150 HP aluminium) and 200 l of fuel, all at our disposal.

In addition to this, we can take a trip across the Lyngen Fjord to the peninsula or a tour to the Lyngen Alps.

If you enjoy ice or rock climbing, there are also ice cascades and rock walls waiting for us.

Finally, if you want to have a quiet day, you can try your hand at sea fishing.

As regards accommodation, we’ll stay in comfortable, warm and fully equipped apartments.

If this trip sounds interesting to you, don’t hesitate. Join me for an unforgettable adventure in a true skiing paradise.
