Hiking in Finland

Climbing, bikepacking, skiing & packrafting in the north

Ski-touring in late April: Daylight from 4 am till 10 pm, great powder or spring crust, wall-to-wall sunshine & all topped off with that breath-taking fjord & mountain view of the Lyngen Alps.


Together with Henryk from Out of Office I spent a fantastic week in the Lyngen Alps. Here’s a wee teaser so you can book your flight tickets and accommodation there for next spring, because it most certainly is a place you want to be. It all starts in Tromsø, where already the approach by plane is breath-taking. Then you go for a walk in the old town and pick up your Van from Take me Away Camping to head north-west to the Lyngen Alps and their surroundings.

You probably want to stop to take in the view once in a while.

Our Adventure Van Endless roads

When your bindings decides to break you go for a walk along the coast of Arnøya and make a stop in a lovely little cabin.

You take the ferry and enjoy the smell of the sea on deck.

And what’s wrong with sitting down in the sun and have a beer (after a day of skiing, obviously!)?

On the summit you snap a selfie with that big grin because the view is so amazing.

And while the tide is low you go for a walk along the beach.

Or you go skiing while the sun sets.

On blue-bird days the summits can be busy.

But there’s enough fjords so you can have one for yourself to enjoy the sunset.

So, book those tickets to Norway now, reserve your adventure van, and then check back in autumn to get the full low-down on our roadtrip ski-touring adventure.
