Spring skiing and paddling in the Finnmark Alps

Spring skiing and paddling in the Finnmark Alps

A truly unique experience

The Finnmark Alps are the northernmost skiable mountains in Norway – The last frontier on the way to the North cape. The landscape is a mix of ocean, fjords and mountains. The peaks and the big glaciers are standing at 1200 meter above the North sea and the views are stunning.

Seen with the eyes of both a skier and a paddler – paddling is the obvious way to reach the incredible good skiing in this remote region. Therefore we use surfskis for our paddle approach. The surfskis are fast but not unstable, safe and fun to paddle. We use the best gear available - surfskis and paddles from Epic kayaks and Ursuit drysuits keep you warm and dry.

The possibilities her in Finnmark are endless, and there is a way to satisfy every level and expectation – From the short paddles along the shore or across the fjords, to the long tours close to the open ocean. We will reach a great variety of terrain – from wide open gentle slopes to steep couloirs – The choice is ours!

Our Norwegian lodge is strategically placed between the fjords and the mountains. Every morning we aim for new mountains, starting with a short transport before we unload the surfskis and strap our gear on.

Depending on the level of the group, a part of the first day will be used for paddling technique and safety drills. If you live in Sweden you also have the opportunity to do paddling training with us before you travel up to Finnmark.

We always take advantage of the weather to find the best possible skiing and paddling. Sometimes a really bad ski day with a lot of wind can be replaced by a great downwind day!
