What You’ll Do

The first evening you’ll get to know each other and start with an introduction to avalanche theory and planning. The next day will consist of preparation, planning, what to do in case of an avalanche, and learning to use avalanche beacons. You will head out in the near vicinity to learn about terrain dangers, steep proportionality assessment and how to walk and ski in the mountains. The last day is all about trying out what you’ve learned. You will be part of an avalanche exercise with a focus on group dynamics, assessments and communication. Kristian, our guide, will make sure that you are prepared to do your own safe backcountry skiing after completing the course.

Tyin Aktiv can tailor programs and combine other activities, food services and conferences for your group. Let us know, and we’ll make sure you’ll have a great time at Filefjell.

Meeting Point

The guided adventure is delivered by Tyin Aktiv and everything will be organized from the mountain lodge at Filefjell

Filefjell is located in the middle of southern Norway, easily accessible from either Bergen or Oslo. The mountain roads Sognefjellsvegen and Valdresflye are perfect entry points to Filefjell. The roads are closed from November to April due to snow. Road E16 over Filefjell is another alternative since it is open year-round. Check the National Tourist Routes in Norway to ensure the roads are open, especially if there are harsh conditions.

Car

Driving to Filefjell is the fastest and most direct option.

Renting a car with Nabobil is always an option for getting around in Norway if you have a Scandinavian drivers license. Be sure to add the discount code “outtt” to save some off on your rent.

Bus

From either Bergen or Lillehammer, take the Øst-Vestekspressen bus to Tyin-Krysset. The journey takes about 4 hours from both Bergen and Lillehammer and departs once a day. Book your ticket for the bus here

From Oslo, take Valdresekspressen, which takes 4.5 hours to Filefjell. Note that some of the journeys have bus changes at Fagernes.
