Skiing Summit to Sea on Arnøya & Kågen
Ski Touring Week, Skjervøy, Arctic Norway
(Under construction) My über-classic program. The first ski touring program I offered back in 2015, and still the most popular. For good reasons - spectacular scenery, probably the best summit-to-sea skiing in Norway, no crowds, and lots of good food.
We are based on the island of Arnøya, skiing there and the neighboring island of Kågen. The two islands are a ski touring wonderland. Excellent variety of terrain, fantastic views with contrasts of snowy peaks and blue sea, and the best summit-to-sea ski runs in Norway. Nowhere else are the skiing and the sea so close together. Some peaks are even glaciated.
There are mountains to ski for all skill levels. Breikågen (683 m), for example, offers easy-moderate skiing from the summit right to the sea. The The tour to the Arnøyhøgda (1165m) summit is a stunning, true alpine experience. Store Kågtinden (1228 m) has demanding ski terrain that will satisfy the strongest skiers. Even long traverses are possible, like the Kågen S-N traverse: a long (24 km, 2420 m vertical), demanding traverse of 3 summits - Storsandnestinden, Redotinden, Store Kågtinden - with fantastic ski descents along the way. The traverse was first completed by me in 2017.
