Skitouring week in the Lyngen Alps

1. Day - Saturday:
Arrival by plane to Tromsø.

The guide will pick you up at the airport. Afterwards you drive to the accommodation at Arnøya in a Minibus (VW Caravelle). The drive is about 4 hours and includes 3 ferry-passages and a travel through the LyngenAlps. 

Our accommodation is located at Arnøya, an island just north of the LyngenAlps. The accommodation provides a cosy commonroom, single- and doublerooms, an equipmentroom for the skis, a dryroom and an outdoor Jacuzzi to relax in.

After arriving at Lauksletta, the eveningmeal will be served and an informationmeeting to talk about the upcoming tours during the coming week.

2. - 7. Day - Sunday to Friday:

The following six days will run as follows:

After breakfast we will talk through our tour for the day before heading out.

The tours will have a duration of 4-8 hours and 600 - 1400 meters. Depending on the group, snowconditions and weather we will tour different mountains in the vicinity. Some mountains we can reach just outside our doorstep, other mountains would include a short transfer or a ferryride to the mainland.

All tours have in common, that the views of the LyngenAlps and the fjord are impressive. Furthermore the location up north provides very good snowconditions also in late winter.

We take warm tea and a lunchpack with us from the breakfastbuffet.

Our hosts serves us dinner, based on local northernnorwegian dishes.

For relaxation it is possible to use the outdoor jacuzzi and enjoy the views of the islandworld.

8. Day - Saturday:

After breakfast, transfer to Tromsø

A sample of mountains:

Store Kågtinden (1228 m, Kågen): One of the big summits in the region on the mountainisland Kågen - a skitourparadise, where also glaciers can be seen. Varieties of tours depending on stability and requirements. The classic: the SE-side with 1100 m of downhillfun between 30-35°.

Storsandnestinden (1097 m, Kågen): Another great tour. Through the spectacular Trolldalen to the summit, racy over Blåisen-glacier and Stokknesdalen downhill. A varied classic.

Laukslettinden (977 m, Arnøya): Starts with wide, flat slopes and continues towards the summit at 30-35°. Racy downhill! Or for experienced skiiers, the more challenging Arnøyhøgda (1170m). Both summits rewards the efforts with fantastic views.

Lyngnestindan (833 m, Arnøya): One of the best skitours. Topslopes from the summit directly to the coast by the Langfjord. 30-35°, depending on the route, optional with steep couloirs for professionals. Several downhill options, often one of the mountains with the best conditions in the region.  

Kågen-Traverse: For the very fit. Cross Storsandnestinden, Redotinden, Kågtinden. 2 450m, 24 km, 35-45° depending on the route. Only for groups up to 4 persons!


You should be prepared for skitours of 4-8 hours and 600 - 1400 heightmeters. Experience in skitouring is an advantage. Important for us is that everyone can enjoy the tours. For the ascents kick turn technique is required and experience with crampons is an advantage.
