Ski & Sail Northern Norway
... 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.
Flight from Oslo to Tromsö, followed by a short transfer to the harbour. Here the skipper awaits us at 18:00 to board the yacht. The first night we stay in the Tromsö harbour where the crew serves us our first dinner. Lonely bays and rarely frequented ski touring mountains are the destinations of our Ski & Sail Tour from now on.
Day 2 - 6:
Ski & Sail in the Lyngen and Senja areas. After a hearty breakfast, we grab a lunch package before we are brought to the shore by a dinghy. Numerous ski tours await us here. Dinner will be ready for us when we return to the boat. At night we will either drop anchor or dock in the harbour.
Return to starting point Tromsø by 11:00 for the homebound journeys.
The destinations of our Ski & Sail Tour are flexible and will be planned and altered daily by the mountain guide and skipper according to the conditions.
