Senja Ski Touring
April 15 - April 20
Senja is less well known than the honeypots of Lyngen and Lofoten but provides equally good potential for ski touring. Accessible with a 2 hour drive from Tromsø, the scenery is spectacular and the landscape could have been made for ski touring with ascents up to just under 1000m and on a variety of aspects. The weather is varied, as one would expect in an Arctic maritime environment. Often weather and snow conditions can be radically different in adjacent fjords/valleys and so a flexible approach is the key.
