Skiing in Norway, touring with a sea view

Finnmark - the trip of a lifetime

I was lucky enough to spend 8 days skiing with Fred in Finnmark in May of 2017. The conditions were unusually epic that year— it snowed almost every minute I was there, or so it felt. Even so, you still need quite a bit of expertise to find the right conditions (there's no reliable freeze thaw cycle when it's constantly snowing!) and Fred did not disappoint. It was almost like he was a magician, finding us the perfect snow every single day, even on days when the conditions were tricky. Most guides are good at finding snow, but what made Fred such an outstanding guide was his passion. You could tell that not only did he love to ski, but even moreso, he loved helping other people deepen their passion for skiing. He was so incredibly encouraging, and I definitely improved my technique and confidence tremendously over the course of the week. Co-guide Erik was also incredibly skilled at kayak instruction, and generous with his passion and knowledge. Add that to the beauty and wonder of Finnmark, the truly magical aspect of kayaking with skis, and it really was the perfect skiing holiday. Also, the food: delicious! I hope I can be lucky enough to ski with Fred and Erik again someday.

Winter

Ski touring in Finnmark, Norway. The last frontier.

Dates
March to May 2018, 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 !
