Jan, Feb, Mar
For passionate skiers, Norway is a true paradise. It has incredible landscapes, deep blue fjords, and endless slopes. Join me for this ski touring week in the amazing Sogndal. I have been taking guests on this tour for several years now and it has since become a classic.
Note: Check out my other 5 ski touring programs available in Norway below.
First, we will fly from Zurich to Bergen. Once there, we will drive towards Sogndal in a rental car. To get there, we will go across the famous 24.5 km long Lærdal tunnel. In order to reach the fjord, we will take the car ferry. Once in the Gaupnefjord – one of the branches of the Sogndal – we will head towards our hut. This cozy mountain house includes a terrace with a sea view.
From Day 2 to Day 7, I will guide you on diverse ski routes around the Sogndal fjord, with great powder conditions in this time of the year. The main possible routes we will aim for include:
And in Jostedalen:
Der Mannen (1,560m)
On Day 8 we return to Bergen by car, where the program ends.
The ski routes on this program are generally over wide slopes, with some steeper sections. The descents usually end in a perennial belt. Also, the ascents are usually between 3 and 5 hours. Groups are between 2 and 6 guests.
The equipment you will need for this program normal ski touring equipment, with LVS and a headlamp. Breakfast and dinner in the hut are included. Our cook will be, as usual, Ulrica.
The price includes flights from Zurich to Bergen. Departures from German and Austrian airports are also possible upon request. Early bookings might have access to business flight tickets (subject to availability)!
Note: cancellation insurance is compulsory.

I became a professional mountain guide after discovering that mountains and wild nature meant the life to me. In 1983 I completed my studies and started an amazing journey. I have been constantly on the road ever since, up in the Alps and on mountains and trekking areas on every continent.
Before I started taking guests on tours, my wife Ulrica was my climbing partner. Together, we spent many autumns in the Klausenpass climbing walls. After our daughter Heidi was born, she started coming along on our tours around the world. Later, our son Thomas and daughter Christina would join us. Even later, our granddaugther Jana came into our lives. All three of our children have become mountaineers as well. I am proud to say that world-strolling is in their blood too.
Having led groups in the Alps and other parts of the world for a long time, I witnessed how the alpine mountain landscape changed over the years. When I started off, we had to cook in the huts for ourselves. We now see suites, whirpools and saunas. Technical difficulties up in the mountain are mitigated with chains and wire ropes - a new way to live the mountain in a time-saving manner. Climbing routes that were inaccessible before have now been made open for the general public.
My heart lives for having more and more original natural experiences. This is the kind of experiences that have made us addicted to the mountain. I continue to strive for taking my guests off the beaten and better-known tracks. This is my commitment to you. I hope you can join me soon!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
