SKI TOURING IN ROMSDALEN guides you to 50 summits in one of the best ski touring regions in Norway. Some of them are popular classics, while others are less well known. Some are accessible, others remote. Some steep, others gentle. All of them, however, can give you unforgettable experiences.

Ski touring in Romsdalen

You never ski the same mountain twice. Conditions change with weather and season; fresh snow can be a blessing, but it can also spell avalanche danger. When the sun is shining in spring, some slopes should be avoided while others are ripe for the picking. This book recommends where to ski and, just as important, when to do so.

Halvor Hagen (b 1971) has lived in Isfjordenfor over 20 years and is a passionate skier and rock climber. As a certified NORTIND mountain guide, he has been working in the Romsdalen area for the past fifteen years. Halvor also works for the industrial company Aak AS. SKI TOURING IN ROMSDALEN is his first publication.

THE LYNGEN ALPS
skiing / climbing / trekking


The Lyngen Alps is the name of the mountainous region situated on the 1500 square kilometers Lyngen peninsula, located at 69º North in Northern Norway. The narrow peninsula abounds in sharp peaks, impressive glaciated massifs and valleys. It is a landscape of contrasts where you can experience deep fjords, a green coastline, alpine meadows with boulders, cold rivers, Arctic fauna and birdlife and, of course, wild mountains. The region, with its 124 peaks above 1000 meters, is Northern Europe's most pronounced big mountain area.

The white peaks of the Lyngen Alps have attracted the interest of climbers and mountaineers since the 19th Century. The Lyngen Alps are famous around the world for its excellent skiing and breathtaking landscape.

This guidebook is a comprehensive manual to the best skiing and alpine climbing in the Lyngen Alps. It covers the iconic Jiehkkevarri traverse, the easy option Perstinden, the steep couloirs of Jægervasstinden and everything in between. Climbers get the key to the treasures of unknown Guhkkesgaisa and Piggtinden, the mountain made famous by philosopher Peter Wessel Zapffe. A good selection of ice-climbing routes is also described in the book.

The Lyngen Alps
The summer visitor can enjoy the peaks, the valleys, the lakes and the glaciers of The Lyngen Trek, an eight day walk from south to north of the peninsula – or vice versa. A section of daytrips and family friendly activities are also included. You do not have to go to Himalaya to find sacred summits – or lakes or rocks.

Welcome to this remarkable landscape!!
