Decision making in avalanche terrain

In the end of January 2018 we run a very special avalanche course for any skier to join. High lighting “decision making in avalanche terrain” we hope to make it interesting for skiers at all levels and aspiring ski mountaineers. Bringing in top names as Markus Landrø and Ptor Spricenieks we make sure to give huge value for money and a real kick-start to the season up here. Both inspirational and packed with learning we hope for full house as the Lyngen prime time season will be just around the corner. Please check out the program under “Events” and please send a mail for taking part or ask questions about the weekend.

Lyngen glaciers with Ascent Descent “The Lyngen Mountain Guides”

The Lyngen alps has always been known as a premier spot for ski mountaineering and ski touring but more people find their way to our fantastic mountain range in summer as well. Glacier excursions, trekking and mountaineering is great when visiting Tromsø and The Lyngen alps in the summer. We customize day tours and multiple day excursion for private groups and individuals all summer. Here´s some pictures from our last glacier tour.

The hiking to the glaciers is often a bit rough so it´s good to be in shape for a day out on this activity. Photo: Jimmy Halvardsson

The hiking is often worth the trip in it self with beautiful scenery in a remote setting. Photo: Jimmy Halvardsson

Lyngen spring season

It´s mid May and finally the spring has arrived with warmer temperatures and midnight sun just around the corner.

For many this is the best time of the year and at the moment we experience the first heavy transformation in the snow pack and it will soon be perfect spring snow lasting well in to June this year. Here is some pictures from one of our days last week!
