Winter is by the doorstep and gradually we fill our Lyngen ski touring season with groups from all over. There is still room in the calendar for 2019 so please don´t hesitate to send us a mail about skiing in the lyngen alps the coming season. We offer all inclusive and customized packages from our location in Nord Lenangen but also have guides available for groups that choose to organize their own trip. It´s hard to beat our set up though:)
As autumn temperatures starts to set in and our mountain tops gets their first snow we start to get ready for a new ski season in the Lyngen alps. 14th season ahead and we keep improving our concept with ski weeks from private exclusive lodging, ski by boat tours and great tours from the door step in the Northern Lyngen alps. The lyngen alps suits all levels of skiers and our professional mountain guides are locally experienced with multiple seasons in the area. Please send a mail from our contact page or directly at email@example.com. Best regards Jimmy Halvardsson / IFMGA Mountain Guide
Jiehkkevarri 1834m is the roof of our county and the highest summit of the lyngen alps. We provide guided tours to the summit and you can join one of our open events or book your private guide. The views from the summit is just stunning. You will travel through rough mountain terrain on this one to get to the top glacier plateau. We provide equipment and transport from Tromsø city and you need to be prepared for a long day out. 12-15 hr and 2200 vertical metres compares to an ascent of the Mont Blanc.
Learning from legends is back and this time with norwegian MTB legend Espen Bergli Johnsen as special guest. Espen won the 2017 80/20 National Enduro series in Norway and also won the Norwegian Downhill championships 7 times between 2001-2010. We are so stoked to finally launch an event in the summer in Nord Lenangen. This will be a great opportunity for local and visiting riders to discover the area and meet new friends. Tickets are out and we have a feeling that this will be sold out pretty fast. 8 spots available and more info is coming the next few days as we get a bit deeper into the planning…

We are well into our 13th winter season in the lyngen alps and recent snow activity looks very promising for the coming week. Having multiple groups out skiing in on this magic peninsula every day always makes us slow on web updates at times but we do our best. Our instagram account ascentdescent_lyngen is always running a bit faster… We still have an opening for groups in the first week of May this year which is one of the best times to be up here. Also soon our summer program will be launched with summer tours to Jiehkkevarri (our highest summit) and glacier walking / boat tour combos and more. Stay tuned!
