Sail from Tromso to the best back country skiing locations
The Ski and Sail Trip is a unique and spectacular way of elegantly discovering the fjords and the mountain world of Norway from a yacht with skis. In Tromsö we set sail with our exclusive yacht and explore the ski touring mountains of the Lyngen Alps. Every day we will moor the yacht in lonely bays and fishing villages to start our ski tours in a breathtakingly beautiful landscape. The afternoons can be spent leisurely in the hot tub on deck, fishing or enjoying a glass of wine as we sail through the Norwegian fjords.

Ski bag as additional luggage | sports luggage
You will need a ski bag for all ski touring trips. This is reserved in addition to the flight ticket. The surcharge varies from € 40 - € 70 per ski bag. We will discuss all these details with you in the packing list you will receive after booking.
Is insurance included in the trip?
Our tours do not include insurance cover as most guests already have private cover. Please also check prior to the tour if your insurance covers the booked trip. We will be happy to provide you with an insurance offer for the booked period.
Our recommendation - ski boots in the hand luggage?
In addition to your normal hand luggage, ski boots should be carried in your hand luggage. The reason is delayed luggage! You might be able to organise skis in your destination country, but boots that fit are practically impossible.
Ahead of each ski tour, we discuss all open questions and details of the planned tour individually.
