Description

I invite you to join me on a unique 7-day adventure, starting in Tromso and combining spectacular ski tours around the border triangle of three Scandinavian countries: Norway, Finland and Sweden.

You will be amazed by the spectacular landscape of a wide open sea and majestic mountains of the Lyngen Peninsula. The Northern Norwegian coast is probably one of the best destinations in the world for ski tourers, specially in the second half of April.

We may also enjoy some great ski tours in Tamokdalen, a wide valley well known among Nordic freeriders. Often there is better snow here than in the coastal areas and the snow cover is usually more stable. Tamokdalen is near the border with Sweden and Finland, in the higher lands. There are also birch forests in this region, suitable for amazing tours and “treeriding” competitions.

On the other hand, Lapland, in Finland, will add a touch of mysticism to our tour. A must during this trip will be a snowmobile ski tour from Finland to Sweden and back. We always try to be flexible and make the most out of the conditions.

Our base will be a typical norwegian house by the fjord, near Lakselvbukt, in Tromso. Every day, we will make day trips from there. With daylight almost all day long, the start of the day and day program can vary. Taking advantage of the special Spring conditions in the north often requires flexible scheduling, but allows for extraordinary ski tour experiences! You can check the day-by-day itinerary below.

This tour is for skiers with some previous skiing experience away from the groomed slopes, but you do not have to be a perfect powder skier. It is enough if you are technically able to control slopes to some extent. However, you must be able to climb up to 5 hours, with approximately 8 hours of total hiking time per day.

So what are you waiting for? Book your trip and join me on this amazing ski touring trip, exploring the spectacular terrain of the Norway, Finland and Sweden border!

Itinerary

Day 1: Tromso

Individual arrival in Tromso. We meet at Tromsø airport and continue (1 hour) to our accommodation. A typical norwegian house by the fjord, near Lakselvbukt. Once there, we will discuss the program for the upcoming week and have dinner.

Day 2 to 6: Ski Touring Days

We will make day trips from our base. With daylight almost all day long, the start of the day and day program can vary. Sometimes our choice is an “alpine start” early in the morning, sometimes we take advantage of the better conditions later in the day and go out in the afternoon. We want to take advantage of the special spring conditions in the north in the best possible way and this often requires flexible scheduling – but allows for extraordinary ski tour experiences. We usually take breakfast and dinner in our place. We will take day trips of about 1000-1500m. This means tours with a duration of about 5 hours of ascent and 8 hours in total.

 

Day 7: Tromso

We will have breakfast at our cabin and drive back to Tromsø airport.

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
