Excellent guides

Very good balancing the wishes for all participants, from extreme runs to leisurely mountain hikes.

My favourite guides!

They bring you up the safest route, and then one of them take you down faster than she drives a car.

Føles trygt og lærerikt med TSG

Fikk super opplæring på randonee med teknikklæring i alpinbakken etterfulgt av toppturer i bakgården. Føles trygt, lærerikt og kjempemotiverende med turer gjennom Tromsø Ski Guides. Tilrettelagt individuelt for det nivået man er på, hvor man lærer masse på kort tid og får noen herlige dager ute. Gir mersmak og kan anbefales på det sterkeste!

Det blir ikke bedre enn dette!

Det blir ikke bedre enn dette! De leverte individuell tilpasset guideing som gjorde at vi fikk turer som utfordret våre forskjellige ferdigheter innenfor rammer vi opplevde som trygge og trivelige. Det er akkurat den balansen vi ønsker oss når vi er på tur. I tillegg ønsket vi og fikk vi mye god veiledning i å lese terreng, i rando- og skiteknikk. Kvaløya er et fantastisk sted å stå på ski, logistikken fra flyplassen er enkel og grei; denne riggen funker! Vi kommer tilbake!

Tough trying to decide guiding company’s? Look no further than here.

I had the absolute pleasure of being guided with TSG by Merrick for three days (2x Lyngen & 1x Tromso). Communication was excellent, with both a check on our equipment, skill levels and desires before meeting. Additionally, providing extra gear (ice axe for myself) if required. I felt comfortable with our group, decision making and above all safety throughout. On our third day with Merrick she pushed my partner and I to ski some steeper lines and improve ourselves as skiers which I appreciated. I really enjoyed the continuous improvement mentality, and lifelong learning that Merrick exemplifies. I will continuously recommend this company to anyone that wants to work with positive role models and ambassadors for ski touring in and around Northern Norway. Tough trying to decide guiding company’s? Look no further than here.

Lena as instructor and I totally recommend it

I did the basic avalanche course for girls with Lena as instructor and I totally recommend it. Thank you very much Lena for all that I have learned, she focuses on the small details and on learning as much as possible throughout the course. Lena is a great guide and an example of strong woman guiding in the mountains. When I get more experience in the field I will not hesitate to take the advanced course with Tromsø Ski Guides! :)

Merrick is very experienced and super cool and inspiring

Learned a lot and had a great weekend with Merrick Mordal from TSG on an advanced avalanche course in Tromsø (feb 2022). Merrick is very experienced and super cool and inspiring. Would go on courses and guided trips with TSG again and highly recommend other people to use this amazing, local guiding company ✌🏻❄️

I recommend with my full heart this company

I took a Ladies only advanced avalanche course with Tromsø ski guides and Merrick as instructor. I recommend with my full heart this company. What i really liked was that Merrick explained snow and avalanche behaviour in such a understandable and applicable way. I feel that my avalanche knowledge rocketed after this great course. In addition it was loads of fun! Looking forward to going ski touring with Tromsø ski guides in the future!

Highly recommend! We will be back!

Skiied 3x guided days (2x Lyngen, 1x Tromso) with Merrick as our guide. Fantastic experience. I appreciate that she challenged us and taught us some new skills as well as shared her thought process and decision making while out each day. Easy to book with and communicate with as well. Lena was very quick to reply and helpful with answering questions. Highly recommend! We will be back!

Communication and pre-trip planning was easy

Lena’s at TSG provided six days of ski touring in the surrounding of Tromsø. As an absolute fan of the outdoor and the mountain living in Chamonix I was after high quality and efficient training - this was exactly what Lena delivered! Communication and pre-trip planning was easy. Each day was well planned and made maximum use of time and weather. Lena’s teaching skills are first class and she is great company in the mountains. I was impressed with all aspects of the trip and the high quality of professionalism throughout. Lena’s absolutely adapted her level and advice to the level of our group. Really fun and interesting days with lots of skiing and lovely descriptions and explanations of the surrounding area! I will certainly be contacting Tromsø Ski Guides for our next trip

tours were highly adapted to us

We did 5 days with Tromsø Ski Guides. The tours were highly adapted to us, what we wanted and what we were looking for. The guides have an impressive knowledge about the local environment, the prevailing conditions and where to find good, safe snow. We had so much fun, learned a lot about reading conditions and we were able to climb mountains and ski slopes we would never manage safely on our own. I can't recommend enough, Tromsø Ski Guides will provide you with an unforgettable experience!

Ren lykke og trygghet i fantastiske landskap!

(Oversatt av Google) Ren lykke og trygghet i fantastiske landskap! Lena har guidet oss hele forrige uke på skiturer rundt i Tromsø. Hun demonstrerte eksemplarisk profesjonalitet, bemerkelsesverdig diskresjon og vennlighet og unik tilpasningsevne i en blandet gruppe inkludert surfere og skiløpere som krever at stignings- og nedstigningsprofiler konstant skal tilpasses for å maksimere opplevelsen. Alle forberedelsene ble gjort på en svært seriøs måte med en orientering om avlastningskart og digitale verktøy som presenterer alternativene som kontinuerlig vurderes for å tilpasse seg været, vår tidsplan og våre kapasiteter! Det ultimate beviset på kvaliteten på Lenas støtte og ledelse er at vi vil være tilbake i 2023 fordi det menneskelige møtet er opp til det som gjenstår å oppdage! (Original) Le bonheur et la sécurité à l’état pur dans des paysages à couper le souffle ! Lena nous a guidé toute la semaine dernière pour des randonnées à ski autour de Tromsø. Elle a fait preuve d’un professionnalisme exemplaire, d’une discrétion et d’une bienveillance remarquable et de qualités d’adaptation uniques dans un groupe mixte incluant surfeurs et skieurs nécessitant des profils de montée et descente à adapter constamment pour maximiser l’expérience commune. Toutes les préparations étaient faites de manière très sérieuse avec un briefing sur cartes en relief et outils digitaux présentant les options continuellement revues pour s’adapter à la météo, à notre planning et à nos capacités ! La preuve ultime de la qualité de l’accompagnement et du leadership de Lena est que nous reviendrons en 2023 parceque la rencontre humaine est à la hauteur de ce qu'il reste à découvrir !

Grateful to have Edda as our instructor

I would give 10 stars if I can. First time visit Norway and I wanted to try alpine touring ski as our shore excursion. So glad I found Tromso Ski Guides, Lena, the owner answered every questions I had promptly via email as this is the first time we would be skiing on terrains that are not paved. Edda, the instructor, connected with us via WhatsApp prior to the ski day to ensure we know what to expect, which was super helpful. Edda was extremely patient as we are beginners and her guidance and encouragement helped us to finish this journey. I’m super grateful to have Edda as our instructor, she is knowledgeable, friendly, flexible to cater our schedule, and most importantly, fun to spend the day with! I appreciate all the help she provided and would recommend her to anyone who want to try alpine tour skiing!

snow pack assessment and risk management

Custom avalanche course with Tromsø Ski Guides. With the vast experience, knowledge, and enthusiasm from the guide we had two dynamic days with plenty of learning. I've learned a lot about snow pack assessment and risk management when heading into steeper terrain.

enthusiasm, knowledge and energy

Did the advanced avalanche course with Tromsø ski guides. With a lot of enthusiasm, knowledge and energy the guides made us learn a lot about snow and rescue. They also managed to make the group bind together like rounded grains forming a strong community of great ski buddies! Thanks for this great course!
