ABOUT THE TRIP:
On this guided trips you start at sea level, and walk up to a mountain top that rises up from a deep fjord or the big sea. After enjoying the life in the mountain and company of people with the same passion for mountain skiing on the way up, the fantastic view from the top is just the top of the ice berg. And then the real fun starts. From the top you just enjoy the off piste big mountain skiing strait down towards the sea. It is unforgettable and you get the feeling of totally freedom.
Your guide will find you the best possible snow and chose a route that fits your/the groups level of experience. The guide will also give you tips and feedback during the trip.
Senja Lodge & Mountainguides offer highly qualified guides with local knowledge about the area.
