Ski Finnmark – 26 April – 3 May 2020.
When we first skied in Finnmark we had been ski touring in the Lyngen area for 10 days. We had enjoyed some great skiing but were a bit disappointed by the number of people on ski tours that in orevious years we had to ourselves, so we drove 200 km further north to a latitude of almost 70 degrees north and discovered a ski touring paradise waiting to be explored. We had 10 days skiing on that first visit and met 2 other skiers during that time, we thought we were being lucky but having spent another two weeks up there we met no other skiers again. Speaking to the locals there are hardly any skiers in this part of Norway. If you want remote unspoilt wilderness and amazing views of the Fjords then this is the place to ski this spring.
We fly to Alta via Oslo, pick up a hire car and drive just over an hour to our Fjord side lodge where we will be self catering for the trip. The lodges have recently been renovated so are very comfortable and the view from the windows are truly stunning.
We will head out each day skinning from the road exploring new peaks and passes with fantastic views of the Fjords all round. If you want a high arctic backcountry adventure then look no further.
