Ski Touring Lyngen Alps Norway

Snow covered mountains surrounded by the deep blue ocean, untracked slopes, a ski lodge on the waterfront, fresh fish and northern lights – that’s what ski touring in the Lyngen Alps of Norway is about.

Ski touring in the Alps is already something special. But the Lyngen Alps of Norway hold even more in store: Way up in the Arctic wilderness around the 70th parallel north there are spectacular fjords, virgin powder slopes, mystic northern lights and a house the sea waiting for you. If time passes slowly here, that’s just fine.

Why ski touring in Norway?

Time seems to pass at a slower pace up here. The locals always seem relaxed and enjoy their laid-back lifestyle. It is the quietness of the woods, the snow covered mountains that soar from the deep blue sea, the changing colours of the aurora and the arctic cold of the Lyngen Alps that create that unique Norway feeling.

  • Two Austrian mountain guides who know the area guide small groups of no more than seven guests
  • Choose between an ambitious or a more relaxed group
  • You will be in a group of people with a similar fitness and skill level
  • Ski tours are possible right from the lodge
  • You can book the entire lodge for a private group
  • Ski to the ocean shore
  • Wide open, undulating, fairly flat and generally safe terrain
  • Unusual light conditions and auroras
  • Après ski sauna and fjord plunge pool
  • Fishing from our own boat (aluminium boat with 50-hp-motor), with high probability of catching fish

Ski Lodge in Lyngseidet / Lyngen Alps

The Ski Lodge Sørheim Brygge in Lyngen is directly on the sea shore. Wake up in the morning to the cries of the seagulls, have your catch of the day delivered to the door by the local fishermen. After baking in the sauna you can jump into the cold fjord or head off to the only local pub in Lyngen. Both the lodge and the pub are owned by Stein-Erik, who has been working together with us for many years.
