Description

I grew up here in Norway and spent my childhood exploring the mountains around my home. Having traveled extensively to pursue my mountaineering dreams, there is a reason why I choose to live and work here in Norway. The snow-covered peaks and dramatic fjords around Lyngen create a picturesque landscape that is hard to abandon. During this tour, I will show you all around this little slice of heaven in Scandinavia. 

Depending on how long you plan to stay in Lyngen, we can visit one or several of the top snowboarding destinations. If you really want to see all this region has to offer, I recommend staying for a week. Not to worry if you are only planning a brief visit to Lyngen, however. We can always organize a day tour to fit your itinerary.

One of the more popular ski and snowboarding destinations in Lyngen are the majestic Lyngen Alps. These glaciated mountains line the western shore of the Lyngen Fjord, creating a stunning alpine landscape unlike any other. Whether you are a beginner or advanced snowboarder, the Lyngen Alps will not disappoint.

Further inland, we can reach the remote Tamok Valley. Far from the crowds of the local ski resorts, the Tamok Valley is an off-the-beaten-path option. Characterized by its couloirs, or narrow gullies with a steep gradient, the Tamok Valley is suitable for more advanced snowboarders. The challenging alpine terrain in this valley is also known for its refreshingly deep snow and fresh powder.

If you are willing to board a ferry, Kvaløya Island is another destination we can explore during this tour. The snow-covered peaks of this mountainous island create an incredibly beautiful contrast with the sea below. The scenery on Kvaløya Island is truly breathtaking, even by Norwegian standards.

About the guide

I'm a local certified IFMGA mountain guide based in Narvik. I've always enjoyed being in the outdoors since my childhood when my parents introduced me to this world. I think it's important that I facilitate parents to be able to bring the same experience for their children too!

My career (!) in the mountains started at the age of 12, when I started climbing, in particular long alpine climbs on ice, snow and rock. I'd also been competing in ski racing and cross country skiing since I was little.

My passion for climbing took me to different corners of the world; to the Alps, Peru, USA and Patagonia. However, my heart was always set in Norway and it also reaffirmed how amazing the mountains in Norway were even in comparison to the great mountain ranges of the world.
My goal is to share these local beauties in a safe manner with the mountain lovers of the world.

I like the diversity of activities in the mountains and I like them all throughout the season, let it be mountain biking, skiing, climbing or hiking. I guide ski touring, alpine climbing, rock climbing and mountain biking.
