The title isn’t clickbait—within the Arctic Circle, the sun never sets in the summer months. It’s a truly surreal experience, and when the clock strikes midnight, the sun will keep illuminating the Norwegian skies. Can you imagine better conditions for a week of sailing and skiing in the Lyngen Alps? And to create an even more encouraging environment, because maybe you’re not a super confident skier yet or you’ve never tried sailing, we have made this an all-women trip! That’s right, even our skipper and our ski guide are women, and together we’ll have a trip of a lifetime. Every day we’ll anchor in a different spot, climb scenic peaks of the Lyngen Alps, and then—for the best part of the day—enjoy our long descents! There will always be time for relaxing, enjoying delicious food cooked onboard, and getting to know one another. See you in the everlasting daylight!

Had a fantastic time on the ski and sail trip. The longer you can go the better, you will not get bored of the incredible scenery and the experience of being able to fully unplug. The boat itself is extremely comfortable and Ulrik and Maria are very welcoming and seasoned hosts. You will be thinking “Should I quit my job and live on a boat???” by the end of the trip. Hope to return for more adventures in the coming years!

This is not just a ski trip. It’s the best trip you’ll ever have. Maria and Ulrik are the kindest people on the sea. They not only shared their amazing boat, delicious meals and plenty of laughs and magical moments with us but also paired us with an incredible guide to ski around the widest and most beautiful ski terrain I’ve ever seen! I highly recommend this trip to any skier who wants to have the time of their life! Thanks again for everything!

This is the most amazing trip I’ve ever done. Everything was perfect all the way!
Not only the beautiful mountains and fjords, but the human experience that Maria, Ulrik (and Ramoncito indeed) had brought with their warm personalities, their smile, energy and kindness. They make you feel home, and almost convinced me to move there! Ski was wonderful: Sol Idland our guide was the best guide we could have! Positive, expert, funny! We had breathtaking views of the fjord and the moutains while skiing, you cannot imagine this until you are. Special note to their home-made meal: Jesus Lord it was delicious. The only bad side: you will want to quit your job and never want to leave. If it was only for me, I would keep them secret just for me, but they deserve to be known as the best trip in Norway! Thanks again for everything! See you soon hopefully! xxx
