ISM Norwegian Ski Touring Holidays

ISM are running two weeks ski touring in the magnificent Norwegian alps.

Ski Touring in the Lyngen Alps. 6 days. Price £1845 Fully Inclusive*
Dates: week 18 25th April to 2nd May 2020
If you could design a perfect ski touring area then the Lyngen Alps would be it! The days start where the snow line begins at sea level, skiing up into a quiet and unspoilt wilderness of snowy peaks.
Some of the peaks are more rounded offering open skiing and great views looking out to the sea towards the North Pole. Others offer fine couloir skiing and traverses along impressive snow ridges.
The fjords and jagged Lyngen Mountains are rich in Norse folklore and most of the peaks have both Norwegian and Sami names. The Sami are local semi nomadic people (Laplanders) who traditionally herd reindeer and have a very special ancient culture.

Ski Touring around Narvik. 6 days. Price £1845 Fully Inclusive*
Dates: week 19 2nd May to 9th May 2020
The region around Narvik offers fantastic opportunities for the ski tourer. In the west we have peaks that tower above the fjords and in the east, just over the border in Sweden, we have a much higher and colder range around Riksgransen. This gives us plenty of scope to find great conditions even if the temperatures are warm and the snow line high.
There are also two ski resorts close by, one in Narvik (the highest in Norway, with almost 900m of descent) and the other at Rikgransen. The aim of this trip is to ski tour but sometimes it is nice to take advantage of the powder with the help of some uplift.

*ISM courses are priced to be fully inclusive, so the only essential extras are your drinks. If the programme deviates from the advertised programme there may be extra uplift and taxi surcharges but we hope to avoid this.
