Skiing on Seiland
SEA TO SUMMIT
Seiland House is surrounded by stunning nature where steep mountains plunge into the sea. The place offers practical accommodation in full equipped apartments with incredible view and also a great combination of facilities and activities for those who are interested in skiing in untouched snow from the seashore to the top of the mountain, showshoeing or traversing the glaciers of Seiland.
Period: From March to May.
Seiland National Park has a range of beautiful mountains, with Seilandstuva as its highest point, 1078 meters above the sea level and a magnificent view to Store Kufjord. Here you can also find several lakes, the two northernmost glaciers in Scandinavia – Seilandsjøkelen and Nordmannsjøkelen – and many alpine peaks more than 800 m high that invite skiers for a new challenge in an almost not explored place.
We in Seiland House offer apartments full equipped for groups from 4 to 6 persons and all the conditions to live on your own.
