Finnmark is a region in the very north of Norway, located 1 hour south of Alta. The area is wild, and the multitude of small fishing harbours we will use to reach the ski touring routes.
Atypical and cosy accommodation in villages lost in the middle of fjords, alpine routes directly overlooking the sea, huge and flat glaciers, this is the theme of the week in Finnmark.

During the 6 days of skiing in Finnmark, our skiing possibilities will be endless. We will just have to put our eyes on a summit so that it becomes accessible.
Great ski classics with more remote and wild routes; great virgin slopes overlooking the fjords, dense woods on bad weather days, anything is possible.
Each evening we will find ourselves at home, enjoying the local comfort and especially the breathtaking view. Aurora borealis, reindeer, fjords ...
