Just back from guiding on the highest peak in The Lyngen alps, Jiehkkevarri 1884m. The summit plateu consists of big glaciers and in order to get to the top you traverse over three neighbouring summits. A great experience which do not involve that much technical climbing but it´s steep hiking in places and it´s a proper alpine experience.

Now is also the time to start planning next winters skiing in the Lyngen alps. Our ski touring program with boat accessed ski touring is getting more and more popular. To get a spot at Ascent Descent Ski Lodge in Lyngen in 2016 you just need to send a mail from the contact page and from there we will help you to customise your ski touring trip.

First summit, Holmbukttinden 1666m, and this shot was taken on the way back around 03.00 so still good light in the middle of the night here… Photo: Jimmy Halvardsson
