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.

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.
