Feb, Mar, Apr, May
Discover the wild beauty that lives in the Arctic and spend a week on a multi-sport expedition in the Lyngen Alps! Winter is not only about skiing, so we invite you to enjoy a wide variety of polar activities together with your family or friends.
Under the guidance of seasoned professionals with an in-depth local knowledge, you will be taking part in ski touring, snowshoeing, ice climbing, sea fishing and dogsledding activities for full immersion in the unique Norwegian landscape!
During this week, you will be staying at our comfy, warm and fully equipped apartments at the Lyngen Outdoor Center, with breathtaking views. So after a long and rewarding day, you can relax at the sauna, and maybe even admire the polar lights!
The Lyngen Alps are located in Northern Norway, set across Scandinavian islands in the Norwegian Sea. In an area that is often associated with the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun, the Lyngen Alps are also a vast and diverse landscape that is home to remarkable skiing conditions, world-class sea fishing, and frozen adventures of every shape and size.
Your program is designed to give you a taste of the winter sports of northern Scandinavia. The all-inclusive program lets us handle the logistics while you focus on having a fun, relaxing, and completely satisfying experience.
Based out of comfortable lodging on the island of Uloya, we propose a standard itinerary of 4 days with an IFMGA guide to do ski touring, ice climbing, snowshoeing, and to practice survival and safety techniques. And the 2 remaining days will be devoted to dogsledding (1/2 day), sea fishing and snow hole building.
The itinerary can be totally adapted depending on the group’s experience and objectives. So it can fit you if you are together with your family aiming to have fun and relax, if you want to try for the first time many different winter activities, or if you are experienced and want to challenge yourself in an amazing environment. So let us know what you are looking for in your trip and we will tailor it specifically for you and your group.
Each night will be spent in the relaxing and delightful accommodations on Uloya. Unwind in comfort while preparing for your next day out in the Arctic and rehashing the exciting memories you just made.

BEST TIME AND SNOW CONDITIONS Weather in February is usually somewhat colder than March in April. February is really hard to predict and quite variable: it could be icy and cold or you could have lots of powder and sun. On the other hand, late April could be too warm -with snowline at 300m - but usually, it is great. Generally speaking each month has its highlights, so just choose what you like!

The Lyngen Outdoor Center is located in Norway´s far north, in the eastern part of the island of Uløya.
Located just 500km beyond the Arctic circle and surrounded by stunning fjords (including the famous Lyngen fjord), Uløya is a dream setting to practice a wide range of activities (ski touring, climbing and hiking are an every day occurrence here).
The Lyngen Outdoor Center team is made up of IFMGA-certified guides and outdoor lovers only. We are skiers, climbers and anglers. Our expeditions have taken us all around the world, including Himalaya, the Tian Shan Range, Patagonia, Madagscar and Mali, to name a few. We created this place to share our knowledge and passion with you.
You won't have trouble finding us: the only route on this part of the island leads straight to us. You can take a ferry to get here or we can pick you up in our "water taxi".
Our very comfortable apartments are located just 50 meters away from the water line. They offer everything you'll need for a skiing or fishing trip with your friends, including a drying room. Our boats are some of the most modern in all of the Lyngen area and a large sized pier is located just 50m away from your accommodation.
