Ski Tours Senja Norway

Insider tip: Dream ski tours on the island of Senja in Norway

It is the dream of every ski touring fan: Ski touring in Norway with incredible deep views of the sea. The island of Senja is the largest island in Norway and lies right in the middle of the well-known ski touring areas of Lyngen and Lofoten. Senja impresses with its extremely diverse ski touring and freeriding opportunities. Thanks to its favourable location on the North Atlantic, Senja is often blessed with abundant rainfall - which means regular fresh powder for us :-).
