Pure Lyngen

Where the sun never sets

Mountains meet sea. Winter meets spring. In the Lyng Alps, contrasts are the norm. The challenges are obvious, mountain guides are a must. Here are the steep peaks, the deep fjords and the long days with midnight sun. We have booked the entire cozy lodge and are filling it with skiers and mountain guides.

Pure Lyngen is an Events trip with first-class accommodation, a sauna for relaxation and a restaurant serving local produce. We also have a test center where skis and other equipment can be borrowed. Every day we offer ski touring tours with different degrees of difficulty. Our staff is always available at the lodge to offer the best possible service and we also have a Pure Store with selected products. In the evenings, interesting lectures are organized with invited lecturers, brands and partners.

Alpine Alps

When it comes to ski touring, few places in the world can compete with Lyngen Alps in northern Norway. The Lyngen Alps is a mountain range on the Lyngen Peninsula, around 60km west of Tromsø. The peninsula is around 90km long and the highest summit is at 1,833 m asl. Lyngseidet, the local village, is situated right on the shore of the Lyngen fjord. Typical of the region is that many of the peaks rise directly from the fjord itself up to more than 1,000m.

Skiers from all over the world are drawn to Lyngen due to the fact that you can ascend the peaks and ski untouched off-piste all the way down to the shore. That the mountains also are steep, airy and dramatic makes for an unforgettable experience.

We’re visiting towards the end of April, and spring is the best time here. Temperatures are pleasant, and there is an abundance of untouched snow and daylight. We have our own minibuses and we’ll drive between 5 and 45 minutes to reach our start points. We’ll have four days of ski touring, and we’ll ascend on average 1,100 vertical meters per day. The Lyngen Alps is a perfect region for both advanced and less experienced ski tourers.

Christian Edelstam

Christian Edelstam is an IFMGA-certified mountain guide and Pure Ski Touring’s head guide. Christian lives in Abisko in the north of Sweden, and also teaches avalanche safety, a climbing instructor, member of the Abisko ski patrol, glaciologist and product tester for Tierra. After more than 10 years’ experience guiding at the Kebnekaise and Abisko mountain stations he now runs his own guiding company. Since a year back, Christian only guides in mountains reachable without flying.

He is driven by a genuine joy for adventure and discovery — everything from finding out what the snow’s like on the other side of the ridge, to opening new alpine climbing routes in high mountains. The best part of guiding is to get to share the joy with the guests! Christian has been working with Pure Ski Touring since 2010, and guided for us in Japan, Lyngen, Senja, Tarfala, Dolomites, Pyrenees, Iceland, Andermatt, Haute Route, Urner, Jotunheimen, Sunnmøre and on Svalbard.

Mike Amlert

Mikael Amlert is an IFMGA-certified mountain guide and the current president of the Swedish Mountain Guide Association (SBO).  His passion for the mountains and the climbing in the north soon found him in the Alps, ending up in Chamonix. During 1997-1998 he completed the German Mountain Rangers’ training course to become an military mountain guide, thus becoming the 480th German military mountain guide since the qualification was established in the beginning of the last century.

Mikael leads courses and instructs for the Swedish Climbing Association and has for many years now led the Association’s alpine climbing course in the Kebnekaise massif. This is an annual course with long traditions, having been run for nearly 70 years. In 1994 he was recruited to the Alpine Mountain Rescue team in Kiruna. Mikael has worked with Pure Ski Touring since 2012, and guided for us in Lyngen and Abisko.

Oscar Wahlund

Oscar Wahlund is an IFMGA-certified mountain guide who loves the great outdoors. He feels the most at home climbing or skiing in the mountains than working in an office. Drawn to nature, he spends many nights a year under the stars, but also appreciates a cosy mountain hut.

Oscar can guide you climbing a long route in the Alps, climbing an icefall in Norway or ski touring under the Aurora Borealis in Sweden or Norway. He really subscribes to the idea that the best experiences are shared experiences and enjoys spending time with guests regardless of activity. Oscar has worked with Pure Ski Touring since 2013 and has guided for us in Georgia, Lyngen, Senja, Abisko, Sea to Summit and on Iceland.

Fredrik Liberg

Fredrik Liberg is an aspirant guide approaching his certification to become a fully qualified IFMGA mountain guide. Fredrik lives in Chamonix where climbing and skiing are often combined in order to reach the most inaccessible pitches. After being introduced to ski touring in 2012, he has spent his winters in many different places, including Canada, Norway and Sweden, but primarily in the Alps where he feels most at home. He’s motivated by the sense of freedom in the mountains and the hunt for the perfect cruising run at sunset.

Josef Westerlund

Josef Westerlund is an IFMGA-certified mountain guide and has worked professionally in mountaineering and skiing since the early 2000s. Josef is based with his family in Finland, and he spends most of both summer and winter seasons in  the mountains around the world.

Josef enjoys northern Scandinavia more than anything else. Nothing beats ski touring in good conditions in northern Sweden or Norway, he says. In addition to his guiding, Josef also works as one of the educators on the two-year Finnish outdoor pursuits course Outdoor Academy. Josef has worked with Pure Ski Touring since 2014 and has guided for us in Lyngen and Abisko.

Boende & Resa

Lyngen

Lyngen är ett paradis för toppturer. Ett område på många skidåkares “bucket list” med all rätt. Här är bergen många, höga, alpina, vackra och mycket av skidåkningen sker med havsutsikt. Beläget i Troms län med cirka 2900 invånare är Lyngen kommun uppkallad efter Lyngens fjord och namnet härrör från ordet logn, vilket betyder “tyst”, “fortfarande” eller “lugnt”. Och det är en lugn och tyst plats. Fridfull, men samtidigt lockande och utmanande för oss topptursskidåkare. Lyngenhalvön är ett naturskönt bergsområde där den högsta toppen Jiehkkevárri når 1.833 meter.

Boende

I år har vi abonnerat hela ski lodgen och fyller den med skidåkare, bergsguider och varumärken. Vi bor på det gästvänliga Magic Mountain Lodge som drivs av paret Henrika och Patrik. Det är hög kvalitet på både service och värdskap och maten är vida känd och uppskattad. Lokala råvaror är ett faktum och det serveras mycket fisk, skaldjur och lamm.  Magic Mountain Lodge ligger på den klaraste sidan (öst) av de majestätiska Lyngsalpene. Där gynnas området av vindarna som passerar Kjosenfjord vilket ofta ger klara dagar och solsken från en blå himmel. Lodgen har ett centralt och bra läge för topptursskidåkning där avstånden är rätt lika oavsett vilken riktning på kartan vi väljer att åka mot.

Resa

Du kan välja att åka tåg eller flyg t&r till vår destination. Väljer du att åka tåg t&r ges möjlighet till en topptur med bergsguide i Abisko (ankomstdagen) om väder & vind tillåter. Du kan också boka din resa t&r på egen hand och vi möts på avtalad plats (då drar vi givetvis av kostnaden för resan i ditt paketpris).

Tåg Väljer du tåget börjar din resa på kvällen vid Stockholms Centralstation (observera att tågresan börjar ett dygn tidigare). Vi tar nattåget norrut och ankommer Abisko Östra på förmiddagen. Innan ni går av tågat har ni bytt om till topptur. Er bergsguide möter upp på tågstation Abisko Östra och ni går på topptur på Nuolja (om väder och vind tillåter). Det bjuds på mat & dryck i Abisko, följt av egen busstransfer till Lyngen och vårt boende Magic Mountain Lodge. Bussresan tar ca 5,5 timme exkl. raster. Vi kommer fram på eftermiddagen, checkar in, går igenom utrustning och helgens topptursdagar och äter sedan en middag tillsammans i restaurangen. Resan hem går samma väg och vi tar nattåget söderut från Kiruna vid 18:30-tiden. Vi avreser från Kiruna tågstation istället för Abisko på hemresan och vinner en timme på fjället på det viset. Framme på Stockholm Centralstation följande morgon.

Resplan: 23 april från Stockholm Centralstation kl. 18:11 – framme Abisko Östra 24 april kl. 10.34 28 april från Kiruna tågstation kl. 18:28 framme Stockholm Centralstation 29 april kl. 09:25

Flyg Väljer du flyget börjar din resa på Arlanda i Stockholm. Vi flyger ut på förmiddagen till Tromsö via Oslo. Därifrån blir det egen busstransfer till Lyngen och vårt boende. Bussresan västerut tar ca 1,5-2 timmar inklusive båtfärja. Resan hem går samma väg och vi flyger på eftermiddagen från Tromsö, via Oslo, till Stockholm. Framme på Arlanda flygplats sen kväll. Vi kan även ordna flygresa från Göteborg eller Malmö kontakta oss på info@pureskitouring.se
