Ski touring through the many mountainous islands and spectacular fjords of northern Norway

Discover the region of the Lyngen Alps and the fjords of northern Norway, a spectacular Nordic oasis cradled by the Gulf Stream, with access to the mountains by sea. Beyond the Arctic Circle, we sail in search of a new summit rising from the seabed. During navigation, the Bald Eagle and dolphins cross our path. At night, the Northern Lights illuminate us.

Every day, we explore new slopes overlooking the fjords, discovering constantly changing landscapes. Ascents from 800 to up to 1600 mts vertical, according to your desires and your shape, start skiing on the beaches!

Virgin and light snow leads us from paradise to the beach where, not far from charming villages with colorful wooden houses, our boat awaits us at anchor.

Frequently asked questions

Program

DAY 1: Welcome meeting at Tromsø airport
Meeting with your guide and transfer to the boat's home port. After getting on board, a welcome drink allows us to get to know each other and finalize our program. That same evening we set sail for the Lyngen Alps visible across the fjord. The week's program takes place around the Lyngen Alps between 68 ° and 70 ° north latitude.

DAY 2 - DAY 7: Ski touring between sea and mountains
Every day, the boat takes us to the foot of one of the peaks that surround the fjord in which we navigate. After a pleasant night on board, we leave the boat, disembark on a pontoon or on the wild beach and immediately set out to conquer virgin spaces. As the snow does not change during the day, there is no need to disembark early. The outings take place in broad daylight from start to finish. After a copious buffet breakfast, we set off for the mountains and climb elevations ranging from 800 to 1600 meters. When we return to the boat, we are served a hearty "snack" which will allow us to wait for the evening meal. In general, sailings of connections are done at the end of the afternoon. We are at anchor or at the dock every evening, so we can enjoy a hot shower and a restful sleep. For the evenings, our floating base camp offers all the comfort and warmth necessary to live comfortably. On the last day, once the skis have been stored, we celebrate the end of the trip together, on board or on land, Friday being the party night in the Scandinavian countries ... according to the navigation program.

DAY 8 . End of the trip
Last breakfast on board and transfer to the airport.
