Skitouring and offpiste skiing
Queyras - Skitouring
This is an area with fantastic terrain for skitouring, in a forgotten corner of the alps. We ski from hut to hut in search of great descents.This is skitouring for skiers.
The mountains here are not the highest or most famous in the alps, but they are rugged and impressive nontheless and definitely exhibit a high alpine feeling. The touring season starts early here and often we'll find good powder snow on our descents. More information->
Haute Route - Skitouring
The Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt hardly needs an introduction. It is THE ultraclassic of skitouring and a pilgrimage for many skitouring enthusiasts. Perhaps the most famous skitour in the world, it's a beautiful journey through some of the best high alpine scenery in the alps, among very impressive mountains and huge glaciers. More information->
Vallée de la Clarée - Nevache - Skitouring
This place seems mostly to be known to local skiers, but remains relatively unknown to others. The peaks here are not excessively high and the huts are very friendly and comfortable, making this a great destination for early season skitouring. The area has many options for tailoring the trip to the needs and wishes of the group and therefore it is suitable for both beginners and more experienced skiers who are looking for uncrowded skitouring.

Skitouring long weekend – Senja, northern Norway
Rugged summits, deep fjords, stunning scenery and fantastic skiing all combine to make this a truly unique skitouring destination. This trip is a quick-hit where the aim is to experience as much of the incredible skitouring this beautiful island has to offer as we possibly can, in a short timeframe.

Skitouring long weekend – Tamok, northern Norway
Skitouring far away from the beaten path. This valley is situated a bit further inland than many of the other popular ski touring destinations of the Tromsø area. What it lacks in ocean-view, it more than makes up for in skitouring possibilities. Here you’ll find skiable peaks everywhere! The only problem is choosing which ones of all these amazing looking mountains you want to ski. Because of the long days as well as the favourable schedule of the main air carrier flying to Tromsø, it is possible to get 4 days of days of skitouring in during this 4-day mini-holiday.
Berner Oberland - Skitouring
On this tour, we travel through the UNESCO Heritage Site classified Jungfrau-Aletsch area. This is home to the largest glacier systems in the alps as well as many 4000m peaks.

Chamonix - Skitouring and offpiste skiing
Chamonix is the world capital of alpinism. The mountains here are some of the most impressive in the alps and at the same time very accessible, thanks to the system of lifts in place. Naturally this combination offers unique possibilities for skitouring. We stay in the valley and as most days start by riding a lift, we'll often enjoy more downhill skiing than uphill.
Arctic sampler – skitouring northern Norway
This is a roadtrip for those who want to experience some of the fantastic skitouring possibilities of northern Norway. We’ll visit several different areas during the week, each with its own unique characteristics. You will get to ski with both mountains and the ocean as a backdrop as you link smooth turns down the peak of the day. The itinerary is flexible so we can adapt to the conditions and our ambitions but the main plan is to ski two days in each of three areas: Lyngen, Tamok and Senja. Other areas we might visit include Kvaløya, Balsfjord, Setermoen, Skibotn.
La Grave - Offpiste skiing
La Grave is special. It just might be the best place in the alps for liftserved offpiste skiing.There is one lift, no pistes, no avalanche control and no one telling you what you can and can't do. Here, the mountain isn't adapted to the skiers, rather the skier must adapt to the mountain. The result is that skiing here is a true mountain experience. Add 2000 meter powder runs and you'll see why La Grave has an almost mythical status in the world of skiing.
Ortler - Skitouring
None of the mountains in the Ortler area of south tirol, Italy reach the "magical" height of 4000 m. Because of this, they have never become as well known (or crowded) as their cousins around the big alpine centres such as Chamonix and Zermatt. Despite the lack of fame, the mountains are equally impressive and offer many opportunities for skitouring.
