This is a comprehensive ski touring week – during the week you will experience several summit to sea tours starting from a boat or just outside your doorstep. Here you can enjoy the many opportunities for ski touring in the Lyngen region, such as Kågen, Arnøya and the Lyngen Alps..
Lyngen Outdoor Center is an ultimate outdoor destination. Here is how they present themselves:
"Our team consists of people for whom outdoors is the way of life. We are mountain climbers, skiers, divers and anglers. We ventured with expeditions to Patagonia, Mali, Madagascar, Causacus and Tien-Szan, we climbed in the Alps, Himalayas and we even stormed K2 in winter. We are experts in our fields and so we created this place to share our knowledge and passion with you – our guests."
Based on Uløya island in the northeast part of the Lyngenfjord, the Lyngen Outdoor Center offers a perfect base for all ski touring enthusiasts with trips on Uløya island and the mainland, as well as boat trips to neighbouring islands (Kagen, Arnøya) or the famous Lyngen Alps.
Included in the package is 6 ski tours with guide, and three of them by boat.
Day 1: Arrival and check in
Arrive at Uløya in the afternoon - check in and then dinner in the evening. We will talk about the plan for the upcoming days ski touring.
Day 2-3: Guided ski tours
Breakfast will be served in the restaurant. During breakfast we will also make our lunch packs for the days trip.
Enjoy a day of ski touring. You should be prepared for ski tours of 4-8 hours and 600-1400 m in height. Experience in ski touring is an advantage but not a must. It's important for us that everyone can enjoy the tours. For the more ambitious ascents, kick-turn technique is required and experience with crampons is an advantage.
Returning to our base you have the opportunity to relax in the sauna before dinner is served in the restaurant.
Day 4: Departure
After breakfast it is time to leave Uløya and head home.
