Ski touring is the great combination of hiking and climbing in the mountains and the speed and fun we find in off-piste skiing. We make several different Ski touring trips to different areas, put your climbing skins on and discover a new side of the mountain.
Svalbard and Spitsbergen is a magic place with a unique nature and wildlife. You can find both arctic fox, reindeer and polar bears. In the sea there are whales, dolphins, seals and walruses. Around us rises a range of beautiful mountains out of the sea and offers wonderful opportunities for ski touring.
Sail and ski! Join the powder ship and sail around Lyngen for a different ski tour. You cannot get closer to nature and its elements than this. The sailboat will take us to the mountains, uphill we hike on climbing skins and downhill we enjoy great skiing.
Ski touring is a wonderful combination of beautiful views, the stillness of being in the mountains and the action of downhill skiing. The skills you need, to go on ski tours in a convenient and secure way, are very extensive. You need both personal skills of skiing, general knowledge of navigation and path choosing as well as specific knowledge of for example avalanche security. In short, there are a lot of funny things to learn and on this course we enter deeply into the above. The goal of the week is to learn more about ski touring and have amazing experiences in an extraordinary environment.
Welcome to the Trollviken Lodge by the Ofot fjord in Norway. This is a wonderful place if you wish to experience genuine mountain culture on an old fish farm in the middle of Scandinavia's best ski touring area. We enjoy good food, sleep well and discover new summits every day. In the evening we take a sauna and a swim in the fjord before dinner. Then we sleep comfortably at the lodge with the smooth rhythm of the waves as background sound. On the other side of the fjord we can see the lights from Narvik reflecting in the water.
Six days of skiing with a mountain guide who will find you the best snow. We are based by the fjord, at Trollviken lodge. From there we explore the best of Arctic skiing. During the week we will have one day with heli-skiing.
Join us on a ski touring week in the great wilderness of Swedish Lapland. Many of the mountains in this area do not even have a name on the maps of today.
With or without names, the mountains stand there in their strength and beauty offering us fantastic skiing opportunities.
During this week we will try to summit Kebnekaise, Sweden's highest mountain.
