Ski mountaineering in the Lyngen alps

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!

Best Regards / Jimmy Halvardsson
