Skiing in Norway, touring with a sea view

Finnmark-truly epic

We just finished Finnmark 2018 - it was by far the best trip we've ever done. We worked super hard to get ready for this trip, and thanks to Fred we were rewarded with the most amazing backcountry climbs and descents imaginable. It snowed everyday and night of the week we were there, and according to Fred and the locals this was one of the most intense snowfalls in a very long time. Awesome for face-shots in the powder, but really scary for avalanche risks. Fred's local-area knowledge was the key to our trip, making the most of every day and even managing to optimize the timing of our summits with the occasional spots of sunshine. I felt a bit of pity for some of the other tourists we met along the way, who didn't have a guide and weren't able to navigate the frequent road closures, and without an intimate knowledge of the terrain to find a safe place to climb and ski resorted to sitting in the cafeteria. On that note, make sure to buy travel insurance as the unpredictable weather conditions can disrupt air travel as well - even the roads getting to the airport. This trip required extraordinary preparation beforehand, and considerable effort everyday we were there. It ended up being the best thing we've ever done, and we definitely plan to go back. And of course, we'll book with Fred. Thank you Fred - it was epic.

Winter

Ski touring in Finnmark, Norway. The last frontier.

Dates:
February to May 2019, weekly.

Level: C-D, 3-4

Which skier has not had the dream of ski touring in the mountains of northern Norway, surrounded by fjords and making the last turn close to the sea?

Beyond the famous Lyngen Alps, these coast mountains are spreading their peaks on a huge area. The wild beauty of the landscape together with the quality of the snow are what makes this trip an unforgettable adventure in a skier’s life. Today, skiing and sailing trips are getting more and more popular in Norway. Too popular ? This is a much different trip that we have prepared for you, not so far from Lyngen Alps but far away from crowds in an area of wild and secluded mountains : the region of Finnmark, close to 70° north. Our basecamp is a comfortable house located in a small village close to a fjord. Each day we drive to a new place, not more than an hour, and to reach the bottom of the slope we can also use fishermen’s boats or even sea kayaks, if you feel like paddling ! When it comes to ski touring, there is a huge choice : glaciers, trees, couloirs, easy slopes or steeper ones, short trips or long days on the mountain : there’s something for everybody. The scenery is always breathtaking, with huge fjords and the horizon on the sea… It’s also easy to organise dogsledding tours or fishing in the fjords.

After a few years of exploration, 2018 will be our 10th season in Finnmark. We are inviting you to join us and enjoy this true gem of ski touring in Norway. Welcome to paradise !
