We added the Lyngen Alps as a second splitboarding destination for this winter. Since a lot of our Lofoten trip guests want to explore new and more challenging terrain in a similar breathtaking environment. The Lyngen alps also have the fjord views, but with peaks over 1500m, and more glacial terrain compared to the Lofoten.
We'll be picking you up at the Tromso (TOS) airport on the 2nd of May and will be touring between 900m and 1500m a day, depending on the weather and conditions.
In spring the days are long and offer plenty of time with a big time window to go touring. Apart from the mountain adventures, there are possibilities to go bouldering, fishing, sightseeing, and surfing.
* The exact order and mountains we hike will depend on weather and snow conditions.

It’s important to relax and revive after a long day of touring. We got these warm little cozy Norwegian houses with a harbor view. Each day we drive from here with our cars to our touring destination. Each little wooden house houses 3-6 people and has got their own kitchen. After touring you can even have a dip in the Salt cold water, a perfect way regenerate your muscles after a long day of ski touring.
You should be an experienced splitboarder on icy or compact snow and have to be able to make a solid kickturn. What also helps if you can descend short flat parts in ski mode. Riders that went to the Lofoten with us, should be ready AF :).
You don’t need any crampon/ice-pick experience as this is the perfect location to get accustomed to this climbing gear. Each day we ascend in between 900-1500 vertical meters, that’s around 3-7 hours of touring up in a relaxed way. Snowboarding wise, you should be able to ride comfortably in spring-, ice, and powder snow on steep slopes up to 45 degrees.
