Ski & Sail Norway - Lyngen Alps Trip

Overview

Ski & Sail Norway is your ultimate skiing adventure.The Lyngen Alps are above the Arctic Circle near Tromso & offer an endless powder skiing & snowboarding playground. By boat you have access to any mountain you pick. You will get to your destination during the evening sail, skin up to the summit in the morning, ski down with views of surrounding peaks and never ending sea, then finish up with eating local fish on the boat. Not to mention the Northern Lights, fishing, saunas or arctic water dips that you can enjoy. The combination of skiing and sailing is pretty magical.

Lyngen Alps is the place to go if you want to ski powder in Scandinavia . You can ski anything - from open glades finishing in the ocean to steep couloirs. The fjords and landscape itself is absolutely breathtaking and you will probably spend all days touring with your mouth wide open while taking pictures non-stop.

You will fly into Tromso via Oslo & be transferred directly to the boat which will be your home for the next 7 nights. The professional skipper will then take you into the fjords to the first destination.

Every trip is unique and ski lines are chosen based on group requirements, weather and sailing conditions. You can expect to sail during the evenings, sleep and have breakfast on the boat, ski-tour from the morning, having spectacular snacks at the top & glorious skiing back to the boat. You will taste local fish, try a Norwegian sauna &/or an arctic water dip.

On all of previous trips, the northern lights (Aurora Borealis) have been seen, so you might be equally lucky.

Late lunch & dinner take place on the boat. Evenings are dedicated to sailing to our new destination.

Guiding & Equipment

The tour is operated by UIAGM qualified mountain guides at a maximum ratio of 7 guests to 1 guide. There will be 2 groups so you can choose between faster & slower one.

You will be provided with an avalanche safety briefing at the beginning of the trip. Avalanche safety gear rental (beacon, shovel, probe and backpack) are provided at no cost as part of the package however you can bring your own gear if you have it.

Ability & Fitness Level

This trip is for Strong Intermediate to Advanced skiers & snowboarders who should be able to climb with skins & ski /ride powder runs with confidence in variable conditions. Need to be able to ski tour/climb & then ski/snowboard down 1000 to 1200m vertical metres per day for 6 days. Of course you can take a break and spend a day on the boat or shore!
