Lyngen Alps - Norway
Location - Lyngen
The Lyngen Alps are located 350km north of the Arctic Circle in North Western Norway. Surrounded by fjords in all directions, we will be looking down at the ocean on all our ski tours, where they will start and finish.
Our trip will be based in Lyngseidet in the heart of the Lyngen Alps. Lyngseidet is about an hour and fifty minutes drive from the airport in Trømso, which is the largest city in the north of Norway. It is also possible to catch a ferry to ski on the nearby islands such as Uløya.
Accessing the ski tours
We have chosen to base this trip in the Lyngen Alps from land rather than a boat. All of the ski tours in Lyngen are accessible by road and ferry, so we can enjoy the comfort of a spacious lodge before and after skiing each day. It also means we are not at the mercy of the ocean for pick ups and sleeping if the seas become rough.
