…plus powder snow, lots of powder snow, fjords, remote mountains and even more powder snow!
The ski-tours start right at the doorstep of our house. For example, a 15km trip takes you to the top of Blåtinden (1142) from where you can ski straight down to our front door again, just in time for a cold beer (or 2?) and a hot sauna.
The other options on Uløya include famous Grand Traverse which is a 20km skywalk along Blåtinden , Uløytinden and Kjevagtinden ridge with an exhilerating descent run to a small village of Havnnes on the other side of the island. This is one of the top tours in the whole Lyngen area, a true must-do.
Saeteraksla tour is also a great option, with amazing views over Rotsund straight and unforgettable slopes leading directly to our lodge.
Fancy something different? Take a trip to explore neighbouring islands such as Kågen or Arnøya, with their pristine slopes and amazing mountains. Getting to Kågen involves beach-landing, which is an unforgettable experience, and allows us to reach remote and rarely visited places such as Crystal Valley (amazing ride down from the top of Crystal Peak), Valhalla Valley or Redotind Valley. We also go to somewhat more popular Store Kågtinden 1226, one of the most striking and highest mountains in the area.
We also go to visit Kåfjord Alps on the mainland with their stunning peaks of Sorbmegeisa, Rissavarri and the most popular Storhaugen. All those peaks offer breathtaking views over Lyngen Alps and truly fantastic slopes.
Climbing – ice or rock, your thing? Ice cascades, virgin couloirs and the rock walls of the Isvannet valley all wait for you.
Having a rest-day? Fancy trying your hand at sea fishing? Not a problem – our skipper will take you to the fishing grounds where you will catch your dinner. Probably enough for tomorrow night as well – catching 30kg of fish is not unusual. And just in case you happen to beat our record – currently a 77,6kg halibut – you get a bottle of wine.
This is the far north my friends, this is THE ARCTIC!
Our experienced IVBV guides, with their excellent local knowledge, will help you get the most from your trip to Lyngen, showing you the best ski-tour routes and the most spectacular climbs and hikes. As professionals they will ensure your safety, provide thorough knowledge of the area, topography, maps and navigation equipment.
