We will stay in the cozy chalets at the traditional Handelstett of Havnnes on the Island of Uloya. The location and the ambiance are unique and there are many things to do after ski touring. You can try fishing or just hang out on the sun deck enjoying a glass of beer or wine on the sun deck. Often we will buy fresh fish from our landlord, all groceries we will do at the supermarket 12 km away in Olderdalen. Our accommodation is located on a very unique island called Uloya, so it is necessary to take a short ferry ride to our homes.
Safety equipment (LVS device, shovel, probe) is available on loan (needs to be registered at least 30 days prior to travel).
Best time to travel there:
The best time to go ski touring in the Lyngen Alps is between mid April to mid May. At this time of the year the snow pack, which can be quite fragile and delicate earlier in the season, usually is stable. We'll enjoy the very long daylight…at this time of the year it does not get dark anymore up here. Also it is not unusual to find powder snow on the north slopes and spring corn snow on the southern slopes.
This items are not included in the price:
- Flight to Tromso
- Alcoholic drinks, beer and wine best to be purchased at duty free at Oslo Airport
- Travel cancellation insurance approx. 57 Euro (please contact me and I can help you to obtain it)
Uphill climbs between 1,000 and 1,600 vertical meters per day or up to 6 hours. You need to have a good skiing technique and experience in ski touring.
