We stay in the Austnesfjord with its varied terrain and possibilities for fun under different conditions. Here we find both easy and more challenging routes, the most difficult and well known being Geitgaljen and Higravtindene.

Day 4 – Skiing
This morning we’ll wake up in the magnificent Trollfjorden, a bay available to sailors and boaters only. (We promise you’ll get in Easter-mode). If the conditions allow we’ll head upwards early before the sun starts warming up the hills, reaching for peaks of 1000 meters. Dinner this Long Friday will be gourmet class, and while dinner is cooking we look for the northern lights.
Day 5 – Skiing
This day we’ll also spend in the mountains of the Trolls. Before the sun heats up too much, we will be on our way up with skis and skins on, ascending 1000 metre high peaks. In the afternoon we sail out of this narrow fjords towards other lines and faces. There are yet so many places to go!:)
