About Pure Senja
All ski touring´s utopia

Just like in the fairy tale, there is an island in the Atlantic Ocean where all dreams are fulfilled. And the island is called Senja. It is located southwest of Tromsø and offers an unlikely combination of magical mountain and fjord cozy villages. The grand Atlantic is funded both for sunny days and aurora nights.

Pure Senja is a perfect "next step" if you had been with us at Pure Freeride Camp in Abisko. We offer ski touring groups at PureFreeride Camp for both little and very experienced.

About the island Senja, Norway
Norway's second largest island - in the local's words "a miniature Norway" offers a fantastic ski touring area and a spectacle of the northern lights in the cold, clear nights.

Surrounded by jagged mountain peaks, we start from our base camp in Hamn Senja, at the tip of the island. Here the mountains rise directly from the ocean and give us the mountain peaks of more than 1500 meters of altitude.

The abundant snowfall falling on the peninsula every year makes Senja and its vicinity a skier´s paradise. The feeling of high mountains, untouched off-piste, the quietness of the area and the wild nature contributes to our ski touring days becomes even more magical.

Safety & Preparation

Tools & Deals

Security is mountain guides

At ski touring in high alpine environment you should be aware of the risks. Risks that our mountain guides aim to minimize along with you, but at the same time risks can never be completely eliminated.  

We use only the graduates IFMGA mountain guides. A mountain guide's job is to manage risk in an Alpine environment and to collect and process information. To become certified according to international IFMGA mountain guide is very difficult. The degree is awarded after an approximately five-year education. Archery brand is a guarantee of the highest quality and safety.  

It is also important that participants understand their role in the group's security, which is to come well prepared physically and mentally, to have the right equipment and to act in a proper and safe manner. This is particularly important during the Pure Out of Bounds where we go from hut to hut and are further from civilization. We are interdependent, participants and mountain guide and may not leave anyone who is tired of the hut, or repair or replace equipment, etc.  

On day trips, the mountain guide choosing terrain after the participants' skills. On the Out of Bounds-tours mountain guide must increasingly adapt to the terrain to take us to the next hut. Safety is always first, and participants must be aware of the risk that the tour change due to weather, avalanche or the like.  

You can for each ski touring event see which IFMGA mountain guides who guide on that journey.

Security is preparing

To go on ski touring involves a strong effort in sometimes long days. Just as the equipment must ourselves be in good shape, both up and down. This places greater demands on your skills and your preparation. We recommend that you prepare carefully about your own physique and ski training. And you feel familiar and confident with your equipment.  

Blisters on the feet can be a big problem. Be careful with the fit of the boots and tape feet before or as soon as you feel it starting to chafe. If you rent boots, you may try to use your own inner soles or inside the shoes for your ski boots. We are selling a "Pure Blisters bag" that has what you need before, or a blister. Contact info@pureskitouring.se

Carefully check that all equipment is operational and pack your ski touring equipment in the backpack and also try to attach your skis and poles on it before you leave home so you know it works. Pack the obligatory but not too much otherwise. Think about whether you can bring lighter versions of some equipment.  

You can see under respective ski touring event the knowledge required for that particular trip.

Security is equipment

Going to the ski touring places requires high demands on both equipment and human. The equipment must be lightweight, multifunctional and extra durable. Behave we want to have long and effective steps, as well as good ventilation. Perform we want stable skiing, wind protection and warmth.

Dressing for ski touring is not easy. A good way to think at ski touring is that the heating rate as experienced cross country when you go up and piste skiing when you go downhill.  

It is good to have a padded jacket, or extra fleece to take on as we take a break. Shell jacket and shell pants that are wind and waterproof is preferable and that you dress for the multi-layer principle so you can regulate your temperature.  

You should have a hat and warm gloves that resist wind and rain well. You should also remember to protect your eyes by wearing goggles or sunglasses, and that you bring sunscreen.  

Skis should have randonné binding. In Canada and Japan, it is common with wider touring skis, happy to 100mm and above the foot. Skins, any cut for the ski and must cover at least the entire ski width apart steel edges where the ski is at its narrowest.  

Crampons and ice ax should be of "alpine" model, that is, ice ax should be suitable for snow and not ice climbing and have straight stems (45-65 cm) blades. Crampons should have horizontal front-tags.  

We work with the best brands and offers you great prices when buying alternatively hire. Log in to Tools & Deals to take advantage of our offers.  

You can for each ski touring event see what equipment is required for that particular trip.
