Description

Ski touring in the Lyngen Alps in Norway, in the area of Tromso, is something you have to experience at least once in your life. We are happy to welcome you to Nord Lenangen in the Northern Lyngen alps. We got 3 comfortable chalets, a ski touring boat, wood fired saunas, jacuzzi and a great location for skiing in Lyngen and surrounding islands.

My team of IFMGA mountain guides an I will guide you around the area, one of the best ski touring spots in the world. The possibility of skiing new mountains every day during your stay makes for an extremely varied outdoor experience.

Please note that we can only accept clients looking for private guiding up to 8 skiers. Unfortunately, we can’t mix people looking to join a group. 

I particularly enjoy living and guiding in the Lyngen Alps. If I had to summarize the ski experience in Norway in a few words, I would say: Fjords, midnight sun, untouched powder ski runs, great boat journey, relaxing and comfortable lodging.

A mountain guide will take up to 8 clients with him (although we recommend a maximum of 6 people per guide, so you can have a more personalized experience). One of the main advantages of doing backcountry skiing in the Lyngen Alps is the diversity of the terrain. It is suitable for all levels of skiers, beginners as well as experienced ski tourers.

The best time for skiing in the Lyngen Alps of Norway are the month of March and April because it is cold (around -2 and – 10°), we can enjoy the mythic northern lights and the days are long in terms of daylight. In April, the temperatures are getting warmer but it remains a great period to enjoy powder snow. During the month of May, the days become endless which can make the ski experience even more unique.

You will find below a standard ski touring program that could be adapted based on your schedule and your wishes. A typical week usually starts on a Saturday.
