The glacier hiking takes place in the world-renowned Lyngen Alps – a majestic chain of steep, high mountains surrounded by fjords. You need no previous glacier walking or hiking skills to participate.
An introduction to glacier walking with special focus on saftey will be given before the activity begins. Our experienced guides will accompany you on the spectacular Steindalen Glacier.
We start off wih a 2-3 hour hike up to the glacier. When we enter the glacier, you will walk in a rope team, meaning that for your safety you will be connected to each other by a long rope. You will wear helmets, ice axes and crampons attached to your boots. During this exciting tour you will gain an insight into the fascinating Sami and Kven cultures and the area’s unique geology.
The tempo and routes will be adjusted according to your previous skills and fitness. However to participate on a hiking trip of this length you must be in normal physical condition.
If you are unable to arrange your own transport, we can provide transfers from the Tromsø area. This must be booked well in advance. Details concerning price and meeting point are available on request.
