Northern Norway Troms og Finnmark ALTA

17 days - Finnmark Plateau north – south skiing expedition

  •  /  km From You
Overview

The Finnmark Plateau – the name alone brings to mind images of grand nature and magnificent experiences for many European adventurers. The endless rolling terrain, the Northern Lights and the silence will always make a deep and lasting impression on those who see it.

This is the long way across the Finnmark Plateau at the coldest time of the year. The low temperatures, the changing snow conditions, the few hours of daylight and no other people in sight makes this an Arctic challenge for the true adventurers and explorers. And the reward: images of magnificent untouched nature forever burned into your memory, the indescribable Arctic light, a relaxed mind and the rewarding feeling of having done one of the toughest Arctic challenges available in mainland Scandinavia.

With this tour you get the opportunity to test yourself and your equipment. You can get valuable expedition experience before going to Greenland, Antarctica or to the North Pole. The program is 17 days and starts around mid-February. This is the coldest period of the year and the light is stunning.
Also if you have no other expedition or tour plans, this tour has a lot to offer. Your mind changes mode when you go beyond 8 or 9 days without contact with civilization. The white landscape, the silence and the meditative motions of cross country skiing will give you plenty of time to reflect, filososophize and day dream on the way. Many people find them selves in a very balanced, relaxed and harmonic state of mind after a trip like this.
But be aware; this feeling can in some cases lead to a life long addiction for long duration outdoor adventures!

This expedition holiday is suitable for adventurous people with strength of will and a doer’s attitude. It requires a good level of fitness and previous camping and outdoor experience.

The route goes from north to south and ends up in Karasjok, the Norwegian Sami capitol. We will be skiing the whole way transporting our equipment in pulks and back packs. Almost the entire route will be off track and our daily skiing distances will be between 7 and 22km. Total distance will be between 160- 210 km, depending on our starting point which will be desidet based on group size and -composition, weather forecast, snow conditions and other factors that will influence on the trip.
In Karasjok we will stay at Engholm Husky Lodge.

We will be skiing during the coldest period of the year when the temperature can drop to below -40°c and the weather can vary from clear blue sky and no wind to storm or blizzard. This will challenge you both physically and mentally but it will also bring forward friendship, character, cooperation, grand nature experiences and a wilderness feeling that few other places in Europe can offer.

The guides on the expedition are very experienced and highly qualified for this type of expeditions. Their most important task and main focus will be on making this the best possible experience for you.

The price includes:
Local transportation, all meals from dinner on day 1 to breakfast on day 17, lodging in Alta and Karasjok, some clothing and equipment (see eqiupment list).

The price does not include:
· Travel to Alta and from Karasjok
