Skiing the Arctic Tip of Norway

The Arctic.

Home to polar bears. Reindeer. And, of course, your next ski trip...

Welcome to Skiing the Arctic Circle, a new backcountry adventure across Norway’s Arctic tip, taking reservations now for a May departure.

Your journey begins at the Lyngen Lodge—located, as you might’ve guessed, on the waters of the Lyngen Fjord, which you’ll cross on your way to the snowbound Arctic shore.

From there, you’ll cross-country ski up one of the region’s savage peaks, past crevasses and avalanche debris. (There are no chairlifts—not that you wanted one.)

On every run, you’ll literally ski from summit to sea, traversing vast powder meadows and pristine glades as the waves ripple below. Your steed (okay, a boat) waits faithfully at the shoreline—ready to take you to either another mountain or back to the hot tub and sauna at the lodge.

Your après-ski options: waffles, hot soup and hot toddies from the fully stocked bar—plus three courses of lamb and reindeer, Norwegian salmon and something called wolffish.

We’re pretty sure it’s more fish than wolf.
