Join Ernst Marti, a IFMGA/UIAGM certified guide, on this snowshoeing week in the stunning Lyngenfjord and have the experience of a lifetime!
This snowshoeing trip in Lyngenfjord is truly unique! This peaceful region covered in snow year-round offers the best snowshoe treks under the midnight sun of Norway. Come next February and enjoy with me this magnificent place!
Surrounded by blue glaciers and snow-covered peaks, Lyngenfjord has a combination of outdoor activities you can choose from, such as snowshoeing through the forest, visiting the Arctic Islands or taking photographs of the beautiful northern lights. I can assure you these landscapes will take your breath away!
The snowshoeing activity I am proposing will take between 4 and 6 hours and you don’t need to have any previous experience or alpine skills to enjoy them! So whether your skill level is beginner, intermediate or advanced, this experience is right for you.
As for the temperature at this time of the year, it can go under -2 degrees and the wind can be quite uncomfortable. However, our exclusive offer of accommodation in chalets will bring you the warmth and comfort you need to recover at the end of the day. We offer the nicest accommodation next to the sea with a great view of the mountains. Our comfortable chalet is well prepared: expect many cozy moments by the fireplace. Breakfast and dinner are also included and cooked by our amazing chef Ulrica. It is the perfect place to relax before and after our snowshoeing adventures!
What are you waiting for? Send me a request to book this trip and enjoy a truly memorable week!
We flight from Switzerland to Tromso in northern Norway and we will head to the Lyngenfjord with a rental car. We will check in in our chalet, which is equipped with a kitchen, three bedrooms, two showers, WC and a small sauna.
We can reach the forest region in Rotsund Dalen.There we can spend some time admiring this amazing place while we snowshoe among those tall trees. If we are lucky, we will get to see an elk!, one of the largest species within the deer family.
There are also amazing islands in the Arctic Ocean that you can’t miss. During this activity in Arnoya or Kagen island you can take your first steps snowshoeing where the mountains meet the ocean. There you will have the best view of Norway Fjords.
Last but not least, during the evening we can enjoy the first northern lights shining over our heads. It is the perfect opportunity to take some pictures of this stunning natural phenomenon.
We drive to Tromso and fly back to Switzerland, where we all say goodbye to each other, until we meet again for some other adventure!

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 !"
