Day 1 - Arrival

Arrive in Tromso. We meet at Tromso airport and continue (1h) to our accommodation at Balsfjord. This hut lies directy at the seaside of Balsfjord. Due to its location it is a perfect base camp for back country tours in the arctic spring. There we discuss the program of the week and have dinner.

Days 2-6 Touring days

It gets down to business. We do day trips from our base. Since there is daylight practically around the clock, our daily schedule can vary. Sometimes we do an early "alpine start", sometimes we use the better conditions later in the day and start in the the afternoon. We want to exploit the special arctic spring conditions the best possible way and this often requires a time-flexible daily planning - but also allows exceptional ski experiences.
We usually have Breakfast and dinner in our reindeer herders hut and we will make day trips of about 1000-1500m. This means up to about 5 hours of climbing and 8 hours total touring time per day.

Day 7 return

We eat breakfast at our cabin and go back to Tromso Airport.
