An exiting Backcountry Access trip to
the Lyngen Alps in the Fjords of Norway; land of the midnight sun and
the northern lights.
This trip is for experienced backcountry skiers that like to put in the hard work to earn those off piste descents. The skiing has no lift access so it's sweat and glory and lasting memories of an epic week.
We will be staying the hamlet of Svensby on the coast, located one hour's drive from Tromso airport. The accommodation is in comfortable lodges with free wifi with a charming rustic feel. Each has a living area and kitchen with wood burning stoves. On the site there is a jacuzzi, sauna, restaurant hut, and you can have a dip in the sea if you are brave enough! There are local food sources from fisherman and farmers where the lodge staff will buy produce. Evening barbeques with the sun still high and the spectacular scenery provides a stunning backdrop in this untouched part of the world.
Accommodation is based on two sharing per room. Each hut comprises 1 or 2 bedrooms plus lounge area, that are also sleeping areas, plus bathroom. Bedrooms feature either twin/triple beds or single/double bunk. No single occupancies are available.
We will be planning day tours lasting in the region of 5 to 6 hours with descents in between. Over land transport will take us to and from our planned routes each day.
Routes include but are not limited to:
Rørnestinden - 1041 metres
You can reach Rørnestinden directly from Lyngseidet and from the top there are full views over both Lyngenfjord and Kjosen fjord. This tour has intermediate level accessibility but some parts are steeper, around 30 degrees.
