Today we went guiding ice climbing close to the city of Tromsø. Great activity for the early winter here in Tromsø and it´s a good way being active in the outdoors at the moment. Lot´s of big snowfalls lately but with snow shoes it takes about 15 min to reach the ice falls. You don´t need to have previous climbing experience to join us for a day and we offer these tours on a daily basis.
Skikjøringen har startet på alvor i Tromsø og idag var det enda en runde med skogsskikjøring som ventet. Fantastisk snø og trivelig sellskap er oppskriften på en bra dag som skikjører akkurat nå. Det er også flott at vi allerede har kommet igang med våre skredkurs og neste kurs er på onsdag den 27:e nov. Kurset er et 4 timers skredteorikurs og til helgen, vis været tillater, kjører vi på med de praktiske delene. Velkommen!
October is almost here and that´s when we get most of our requests and bookings for the Lyngen ski touring season. For 7 years we´ve been fully booked in the main season and for this winter we see the tendency of skiers who want to come already in mid february to experience the northern lights in combination with ski touring.
Booking for the Ascent Descent Ski Lodge in Nord Lenangen includes boat accessed skiing this winter as well and as usual we provide guides for day or multiple daytours in the area.
Tip! This year we also have a ski touring and avalanche course program running in Tromsø from early winter…

Finally we have a place to do some proper work and you will find us in Sjøgata 14, Tromsø city. Cooperating with Tromsø Outdoor we now can provide a full concept of tours, courses and logistics from Tromsø city.
Todays climb on Zappfe egga near Tromsø was a good start of this summer´s guiding out of Tromsø, Norway. We will be based in our home town Tromsø for the rest of the summer and guiding in the mountains surrounding the Island. So if you have ambitions of reaching a high summit in the lyngen alps or maybe perform your first steps of rock and alpine climbing on Kvaløya please send and e-mail or call us for more tips and dates.
A great week is ended here in Lyngen and it was a very nice finish of this fantastic ski season. Having three students and one visiting aspirant guide doing his final practice with us made this week a truly good experience for everyone. Starting off with camping and avalanche training and moving into steeper adventures as the days moved on… Couloir skiing, Glacier travel, navigation, rope works and climbing steep snow. Lyngen is fantastic in early summer and normaly we have snow lower down but this spring has been unusually warm and sunny. This week was also warm and sunny but it was all to the better for us. Enjoying midnight sun, epic spring skiing and good atmosphere all week made this week a special one. Thanks to all!
Summer is moving in here and a well deserved family vacation awaits on the doorstep…
From July to September we go trekking, glacier walking, rock climbing and summer mountaineering here so please send a request for these activities in Tromsø and Lyngen!

The ski season is still alive here and it´s seems to last for some time still.. Looking back at one of the best winters we´ve ever had here in Lyngen, we now get spoiled by this unforgettable spring. Yes summer is almost here but the snowpack is still as good as it get´s in the mountains. There is still some ski mountaineering to be done before we stop guiding on skis here and for those wondering where to put their last ski motivation a tour to the summit of Jiehkkevarri is always a good season finish. This summer we will trek and climb in Lyngen and Tromsø and just send an request on the contact form and we take care of it!
Here is some pics from last weeks of skiing in The Lyngen alps!
