Description

Come ski touring to Lyngseidet, in the beautiful Lyngen Alps in northern Norway!

Ski touring is an unbeatable combination of silence and experience with a nice way of exploring new areas. The combination of speed and experience of riding untouched snow. Every year we make several tours to different mountains worldwide. With skins and an open mind, we can discover new dimensions of skiing.

Here is one of the tours I enjoy a lot: The Lyngen Alps!

Norwegian Lyngen are usually described as "Alpine peaks that stand straight up from the Ocean". On this peninsula, 10 miles long and 3 miles wide, there are about 60 peaks. Jiekkevarie with its 1833 m elevation is the highest.

During the week, we stay in a lodge in Lyngseidet. The ride up is easier with flights to Kiruna or to Tromsö with Norwegian or SAS.

Once in Lyngseidet we have mountains and skiing possibilities on our doorstep.

We will decide where we go and what we explore during the week, according to the weather and snow conditions. We will look for nice skiing and comfortable atmosphere suited to the group and snow conditions. Indeed, the range is almost endless!

In terms of equipment, personally, I go on relatively light skis, about 90 mm in the waist with a light touring binding, type Ski Trab race. I strongly recommend that you properly test your ski boots and that you are comfortable with the ski equipment before starting the trip.

Please send me a request if you want to go for this unique ski experience! If you prefer, I also offer ski touring trips in the Alps, like the Haute Route Andermatt to Engelberg.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
