Not for profit organisation UCPA launches new ski touring week in Norway
Not for profit organisation, UCPA, has launched a new ski touring trip away from its home in France, based in the north of Norway around Tromsø and the Lyngen Alps.
It’s an expansion of the program that already offers one of the largest choices of ski touring and splitboarding holidays for all levels of skiers and snowboarders across the French Alps.
The 7 night fully guided trip is suitable for skiers with previous off-piste and touring experience only, with 6 days of non-lift accessed skiing through backcountry terrain in remote locations. Potential summits include Store Jaegervasstinden, Russelvjellet, Giilavari, Daltinden, Svarthamartinden, and Gråtinden plus many more.
It’s a chance for skiers to experience a trip that could normally incur huge costs, but at the all-inclusive price that UCPA is well-known for.
The accommodation will be in comfortable guest house style lodges and rooms typically shared between 2 and 4 persons, all meals are included, with the exception of the first and last night dinner in Tromsø.
Managing Director of Action Outdoors, the UK arm of UCPA, said: “This trip really is one of a kind. The scenery alone in this corner of the world is like no other. The mountains are Alpine in character and contain several glaciers, providing it with exciting terrain despite the highest peak being just 1,833m above sea level – the latitude certainly makes up for the altitude. There may be the chance to witness some of the northern lights too. Although the costs exceed a normal UCPA week in the Alps, we really feel that it provides amazing value considering the potential costs normally involved with fully guided, organised and all-inclusive trips to Norway”.
