Last week I picked up four Swedish skiers at the airport in Tromsö. Our first stop was The Magic Lyngen Lodge in Lyngseidet where we stayed for 4 nights. After that we moved camp to the south of Lyngen and stayed in Lakselvbukt for 3 nights followed by a night in Tromsö city.

The sun refused to leave the skies, the summits went higher and the boys appetite for more just kept on going. Skiing from many classic peaks in great weather and conditions was a true Lyngen experience for everyone. Balggesvarri, Russelvfjellet, Fastdalstinden, Rörnestinden, Goalsevarri, Middagstinden, Holmbukttinden and Daltinden, 8000 vertical metres in 7 days was good enough for most of us but Rickard (aka touring machine) saw his dream 10000 metres fade away… Hope we get the chance to fix that the next time Rickard. Tanks to you all for a great experience together!
