Edward Bekker has emerged in recent decades as a true pioneer in the field of arctic ski trips. As an organization we are at home in Northern Norway, Swedish Lapland, Iceland, Spitsbergen and Greenland and have an excellent network of local partners and operators. The ski season starts up north from mid-March. Starting with Iceland, which is our southernmost Arctic destination. From mid-April it will be light enough in Northern Norway to make beautiful ski touring in the fjords. For Spitsbergen and Greenland you must be at least the end of April. The ski season extends to mid-May.
Given the long days in the spring, the later the journey, the less hurry. Especially in May it doesn't get dark anymore and skiing in the midnight sun is a great experience that makes skiing in the far North extra special. Our day trips usually last between 5 to 7 hours, whereby we climb 1000 to 1300 meters. But that is not a problem, because you ski from sea level so that, unlike, for example, ski touring in the Alps, you are not bothered by the altitude. These trips are open to experienced backcountry skiers with an adventurous, flexible attitude.
