Finnmarksvidda Crossing Ski Trek (24-31 March 2019)

 

Chase the Northern Light and get a taste of the Sami culture in one of the most remote and adventurous areas of Norway. Forbes ranked this crossing in the top 5 ski treks in the whole world! Our trek of about 90 km’s through a tundra-like landscape brings you from Alta to Karasjok, the capital of Sami country. We will do this trip with tents (the tough way) although a somewhat easier option by using huts is also possible. In any case: this trek will be your training ground to learn and practice your arctic skills; to camp in very cold conditions and to deal with (potentially very) low temperatures, chilling winds and long and hard days on ski. This trip is demanding for both the body and the mind but the rewards will be very special: we expect to see the northern light (Aurora Borealis), have a good chance to spot reindeer and will have interesting visits to the Sami huts along this trek. Our group size will be relatively small (maximum 6 people) to provide maximum service and safey.

Day 1: we will meet in Alta around noon, probably stay in a cabin on one of the campsites near Alta.

Day 2: Test the equipment, practice with the skis and tent and pack our gear and food for the trek. Probably stay in a cabin on one of the campsites near Alta.

Day 3: we take a bus or taxi to Stilla where our real adventure starts. The first day we will camp near Jotka hut, some 12 km from our start.

Day 4: after a hearty breakfast we will quickly be on skis. We will cross Lake Iesjavri, an impressive ice plane, and camp near the Mollesjohka hut on the plateau. Distance today will be around 24 km

Day 5: this day will be on the plateau and we will experience the arctic environment! After another long day (about 20-22km) we will camp about 10 km before Ravnastua hut where Oscar (or his one of his relatives) will be awaiting us.

Day 6: after the night on the plateau we descend to Ravnastua hut where Oscar (or his one of his relatives) will be awaiting us. Lunch at the hut; descent into the forest for the last night in tents. Distance today will be around 24km.

Day 7: we descend further towards the river (Assebakti) and continue our trek over the traffic-rich frozen river towards Karasjok (another 14 km). We will stay at the Karasjok campsite, in one of the cabins (hot shower!)

Day 8: End of the trip: we say farewell to each other after the breakfast. One may extend the stay in Karasjok, the capital of Sami country, and visit the different highlights here. Or you can take the bus to Lakselv airport (flights to Oslo) or back to Alta for your connecting flight.

One or two guides will lead the group (depending on group size, maximum 4 pax in total)
Price: 950 euro pp, including accommodation for 5 nights and (self-prepared) food for the whole week. We will also provide some general (safety) equipment for the group like maps, snow shovels, GPS, bivac sacs etc.
