Meeting at the Sagafjord Hotel in Sæbø in the evening. This beautiful hotel is located in the middle of several of Sunnmøre's best ski mountains. In the hotel's cozy firelit dining area, we will plan the next day with the guide and dinner will be served before we crawl into bed and look forward to tomorrow.
Sunnmøre is one of Norway's most beautiful areas for ski touring. We will hunt for the best snow, the nicest summits, and the best descents. We will use a taxi boat and ferry to reach untouched mountains and will be based in beautiful Sæbø of Sunnmøre.
- Accommodation right by the fjord at Sagafjord Hotel in Sæbø
- Skiing in some of Norway's most beautiful mountains
- Highly skilled and locally known guides
This is the dream trip for those who love skiing and mountain tours. Based out of Sæbø with a local guide, everything is in order for us to pick the most beautiful peaks and the best descents that are a short distance from the hotel. Which peaks we choose depends entirely on the weather and driving conditions, but we have mountains such as Slogen, Skårasalen, Blåbretindene, Blæja, Kvitegga, Randers top, or Kolåstinden - to name a few favorites. We often use a taxi boat or ferry to cross the Hjørundfjord to get to the starting point for the summit tour. That alone is an experience in itself!
After a long day of skiing, we return to Sagafjord Hotel. Right by the sea, perhaps a swim in the fjord is tempting after your turn? Possibly a beer? The experience is topped off with a good dinner before we end the evening by planning the next day in front of the fireplace.
- 24-hourergency standby team
- Guides with training in first aid

On these trips, some of the stages are demanding. On level 3 mountain hikes, there are often some long stages, and / or a demanding summit push where it can get cold. You must stand up to reach the goal, and have a good training basis and good health before departure. We sleep in tents and / or in cabins and hotels, but you do not have to have experience with tent life to participate. If the trip includes activities such as kayaking, cycling, climbing, glacier, skiing / mountaineering, it is an advantage to have experience with this 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 Preperation
In order to participate on this trip, you must have good physical fitness ascending and descending on skis. Ascents can vary depending on the group's ability and snow conditions, but being able to ascend 1,200 - 2,000 meters per day is important when wanting to participate on this trip.
It's important to have experience in ski touring and to be an able skier in mountain terrain outside groomed ski slopes. Avalanche awareness and training are important, as well as the knowledge of how to use avalanche safety equipment, such as a beacon, shovel, and probe. Your guide will have the final risk management decision-making on this trip in order to ensure safe ascents and descents each day. Changes in weather, snow, or road conditions can change the itinerary that is presented in the day-to-day program.
We will spend the night in a double room at the Sagafjord hotel, beautifully located right by the Hjørundfjord. It is also possible to stay in a single room for an additional supplement of NOK 2,500.
The easiest way to get to Sæbø is by private car, possibly a rental car from the airport in Volda or Ålesund. We need private cars to drive to the starting point for the summit tours. If we return somewhere other than where the cars are parked, we take a taxi back to the starting point, and split the bill or shuttle cars.
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.
NOTE! Avalanche equipment (transmitter/receiver, search pole and shovel) is mandatory on this trip. If you already have an ice axe, crampons and/or ski crampons, it can be a great opportunity to get guidance and an introduction to how to use this.
"Thank you for an incredible tour! Skiing, good food, incredibly cozy accommodations and stunning nature. Can´t think of a better way to spend a long weekend. Thanks for having us!"
