Skiing the Alps of the Arctic

The Lyngen Alps of Norway are known by passionate skiers and ski mountaineers as one of the most sought after ski destinations in the world. The Lyngen Alps is a 90 kilometres long by 25 Kilometers wide area covered in dramatic mountains rising from the fjords to the spectacular peaks and glaciers. Located 350 km above the Arctic Circle, Lyngen gets up to 20 hours of daylight in May, meaning maximum ski time.

Join us for seven days packed full of breathtaking ski ascents and descents in one of the most unique mountain landscapes in the world.

This trip has room for 6 guests.

Explore exotic peaks in the land of the midnight sun – the Lyngen Alps of northern Norway.

The skiing we do in Norway is all human powered, for this reason and the fact that the days are long, we recommend this trip to experienced backcountry skiers with intermediate to advanced skiing / snowboarding abilities and good fitness levels.  Ideally, you have been ski touring throughout the winter to be comfortable on a number of full days out!

  • A certified U.I.A.G.M / A.C.M.G mountain guide
  • Transport from Tromso Airport
  • Food at Lyngen Lodge

Whitecap and Whitecap International cannot make exceptions to the cancellation policy for any reason, including personal emergencies and weather.

All cancellations must be received in writing. If we receive your cancellation more than 10 weeks prior to the start of your trip, you have two options:

a) We are happy to rebook your reservation if you find an alternative date of the same season at Whitecap and McGillivray Pass Lodge, or Whitecap International.

b) We provide a full refund, less a $400 administration fee

We strongly recommend that all guests purchase trip cancellation insurance and most
importantly trip medical and evacuation insurance.

Although getting to the hospital is free in Norway, being in the hospital is not. Basic travel insurance does not cover this and we want to ensure that you are adequately protected in the event of an injury.

We highly recommend our insurance partner https://www.globalrescue.comfor our international insurance
needs. They provide comprehensive medical, evacuation and repatriation coverage. Please go to our Whitecap link here https://ss.globalrescue.com/partner/whitecap/index.htmlread through the information and details and lock in a policy that works for you. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
