It´s been a fantastic start to the ski touring season in the Lyngen alps and Tromsø region. Record breaking amounts of snow and no mild coastal spells so far. As we are already in late March the days are very long and at the moment we have cold clear weather and sunny powder slopes all over the place. We also got some room for more bookings i May so don´t hesitate to send us an e-mail about availability.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
