We will meet at Nes Gård in the evening. The beautiful hotel is located very close to several of Sogn's best touring mountains. We will plan tomorrow's trip with the guide, eat a good dinner at 7pm and crawl into bed.
Few ski resorts in the country can compete with Sogn and Luster. Good snow conditions and accessibility have made this place one of Norway's most popular ski area. In combination with the beautiful Nes Gard, the conditions are set for wonderful alpine experiences!
- One of Norway's best ski touring areas
- Stay in traditional and idyllic Nes Gard
Almost at the heart of the beautiful Lustrafjord lies Nes Gard- a newly renovated farm yard from approx. 1850. Accessibility, good snow conditions and varied skiing have made Sogn by far one of the country's most popular ski areas, and Nes Gard is perfectly located to experience the best Sogn has to offer.
Once home from daily skiing, we benefit from a quality host that has developed service over generations. Traditional après ski, a newly opened wine bar and heated hot tub are first on the menu. This is the trip for those of you who have tried your hand at ski touring before, but who would like a little more knowledge about avalanche theory, route selection, ski technique and making assessments on a trip. It is an advantage that you have ridden alpine/telemark/randonee before.
- 24 timers beredskap
- Guider med opplæring i førstehjelp i felt
- Nødvendige medisiner og førstehjelp tilgjengelig

We have to work a little to reach the destination. These are trips most people can handle, if they have a basic level of fitness. We sleep in comfortable tents and / or in cabins and hotels, but you do not have to have experience with tent life to join. The physical activity is the main element of the trip, such as cycling, kayaking, hiking, skiing / hiking or glacier hiking, but you do not need prior knowledge of the activity.
Activities / trips with some risk. Some incidents may occur, and they may be of such a nature that they require professional help.
Training and preparation
This tour is suitable for those of you who are new to the top tour segment and for those who have ridden a little before, but want to learn basic techniques, safety and trip planning. To make the most of the weekend, you should be in good physical shape and have been on alpine, randonee or telemark trips before.
The weekend gives you an introduction to ski touring for beginners, without going through the topics as thoroughly as we do on our pure courses. If it is a pure ski touring course you want, we can recommend the Ski Touring course at Vatnahalsen.
Avalanche equipment is mandatory for each participant, and it is an advantage if you know how to use it, but not a requirement. An introductory course in the use of avalanche beacons will be included in the tour programme.
We spend the night in a double room at Nes Gård, which is located at the entrance to three national parks: Jostedalen, Breheimen and Sognefjellet. All rooms have private bathrooms, different interiors and the outdoor area is a beautiful place to relax after a day of touring. It is also possible to stay in a private room for a single room supplement of NOK 2,500.
The easiest way to get to Sogn is by private car, possibly a rental car from the airport in Sogndal. We need private cars to drive to the starting point for each days summit tours. If we return somewhere other than where the cars are parked, we take a taxi back to the starting point, or shuttle cars and split the bill.
Changes may occur
We reserve the right to change prices. The day by day program is a guideline and changes may occur. You can refer to our general travel conditions for more information.
On all our trips, we require you to have full health and accident insurance which will also cover any emergency transport home. Read more about travel insurance.
