What is Fjellgruppa

We are a sub group of Tromsø Students’ Sports Team. Fjellgruppa translated it means the mountain group. As a member you have the possibility to take part in trips, courses and various social events.

Fjellgruppa is mainly involved in simple and traditional outdoor activities, but we also arrange mountaineering trips, ski trips etc., according to guiding competence within the group at the time. If you join Fjellgruppa on trips you will meet exciting new students from various countries. Furthermore outdoor life is a good way of getting to know others and socialize as well as getting great experiences. 

Every trip is unique!

You are also welcome to come up with suggestions about arranging trips, and if you are particularly eager there is a chance you can become a activity leader or become a part of our board of members. As a member you have a golden opportunity to get on to trip for a reasonable price.  We arrange trips far and away, which for a poor student otherwise would be pretty expensive. Fjellgruppa covers travelling costs, lodging and dinner. Every weekend tip has a mandatory trip meeting, where the payment for the trips will be done.

We also have a storage facility where you can rent various outdoor equipment. We have equitment like winter tents, gas/fuel stoves, maps, gps, avalanche beacons, sleds, crampons, snowshoes, shovels etc. 

We do not have personal gear like skis, clothes, backpacks, sleeping bags etc. just gear that comes in use for a group on a trip. Only members of TSI can rent gear and the prices range from 50 to 300 kr.  

Our storage room is located at KRAFT Sportscenter (framstredet 79) just behind UiT. We are open on mondays from 16.30 to 17.30. You will find us at the TSI office.

To attend our trips you have to be a member of TSI Fjellgruppa and have paid the TSI fee. 
All information will be communicated through our facebook page.

In the forests you can get along with less gear and it does not have to have the quality needed  for mountain hiking. The same applies to sheltered areas along  the coast. Spring, summer and autumn can have winter weather in the mountains, so extra warm clothing is essential.

Pack light and don't take too much!


Right clothing and equipment are essential for successful skiing in the Norwegian mountains. 

It does not have to be the latest fashion, but it should protect you against weather and wind. The innermost layer should keep the skin dry and provide insulation. Choose wool garments that fits snugly. The intermediate layer provides insulation and transport moisture away from the body. They may be made of wool or fleece. The outer garments must provide wind and moisture protection. 

The following list is a suggestion of what you should bring on an organized ski tour from cabin to cabin. Pack light and don’t take too much! 

In winter the prefered mode (only way) of transport is what we in Norway call "fjellski", basicly wide cross-country skiis with steel edges. Some prefer a backpack, some pack their gear in a sled.


  • Long underwear (wool)
  • Thick sweater (wool/fleece)
  • Wool socks
  • Windproof mountain hooded jacket or anorak
  • Mountain ski trousers or wind proof trousers
  • Woollen gloves and windproof mittens
  • Gaiters/leggings
  • Skis (minimum 50 mm wide, with steel edges)
  • Strong mountain ski poles with substantial baskets
  • Sturdy ski boots (leather) size up
  • Ski wax, scraper

Protection against weather

  • Sun glasses and goggles
  • Sunscreen
  • Extra pair of socks
  • Extra pair of gloves/mittens
  • Balaclava/Turtleneck
  • Extra woollen underwear
  • Raingear (if you do not have waterproof mountain clothing) 
  • Thick sweater, fleece jacket or down jacket
  • Skins for skis

Emergency equipment

  • Personal first aid kit
  • Light repair kit
  • Emergency ration food (chocolate, raisins, nuts, etc.)
  • Emergency bivouac for mountaineers (provided by fjellgruppa on our trips)

In the cabins

  • Light indoor shoes/clothes

PS! Wool or polypropylene is used for summer & winter. Cotton clothes is absolutly prohibited. Cotton does not have any thermal properties when wet. It can lead to hypothermia and frostbite easily. You could get by with cotton during the summer, but it is not a good type of material.

Ski boots should alway be 1 to 1,5 size bigger during winter. More room for thick socks and for the toes to move around. To tight boots leads easily to frostbite. Rule is loose fitting clothes traps air and warm air isolates.

Some gear can be rented for free from Tromsø Kommune TURBO

or from Tromsø  Outdoor
