Ski Tours in the Lyngen Alps in Norway
Skitouring in Norway is not much different from what we can do in Switzerland. But the landscapes and the combination of snow and sea make it a special experience.
Skiing down to the sea is a feeling beyond description that is perfected by the light at day and night.
The ideal season for ski tours above the polar circle is between Frebruary and April.
Flight from Zurich to Tromsø via Oslo followed by transfer in hired car. The journey to Lyngseidet where we will be staying is about 2 ½ hours. Our host Jim’s house offers all we need. WLAN and washing machine are available for free. The fully equiped kitchen allows us to cook. There are decent shopping possibilites in the village and a bar on top.
Day 2 – 12
Now we have the agony of choice:
Where shall we go ?
There are fantastic tours right on our doorstep. If the weather conditions round Lyngseidet are not ideal, we will change on to the western fjord side by ferry. There will be a good dozen of summits. Often we will be able to ski down to the sea.
Transfer to Tromsø airport and return flight.
