Change up your usual winter pace on this sailing and backcountry skiing adventure along Norway’s wild coastline that offers some of the best ski powder on Earth. Each day, you’ll anchor in a different location for unmarked powder skiing overlooking the ice-cold Arctic Ocean: Senja, Steigen, the Lyngen Alps, or Finnmark. You can’t go wrong with 1,000+ meter white-clad mountains all to yourself—acres of varied terrain covered in fluffy powder or spring snow combined with icy vistas of the Far North. Add to the equation the coziness of your sailing ship and a hot shower at the end of each day and you’ve got yourself a whole new rhythm for your next vacation.

  • Discover the remoteness of quiet fjords on Norway’s coastline

  • Revel in the summit-to-sea descents and step up your off-piste game

  • Your sailing ship is both comfy and durable, making it ideal for this rugged adventure

Perfect combination!
Catrien about Sailing Taxi

Swimming in ice cold water after a day of ski touring. Fresh fish for dinner, straight from the fjord. The trip to the Lyngen Alps really had everything I love in one program. The combination of skiing in an incredibly beautiful Norwegian mountain landscape with views over the fjords and sailing through the fjord in search of the mountain of tomorrow, was unique and challenging.

Norway is a candy shop!
Peter about Sailing Taxi

Norway’s candy shop is big, very big, and we’ve only discovered a small corner of it. Treeruns for when the weather is bad, open bowls for the better days and the countless amazingly beautiful couloirs for the ultimate dessert. Norway has it all, not to mention the views along the way. Highly recommended!

  • To enjoy this guided ski touring and sailing trip on Norway’s coast, you need to be in very good physical shape. The climbs are mostly above 800m (2,625 ft), after which a nice descent follows. You will be on your feet for multiple hours a day for 5 full days, covering several miles of terrain every day. One long or two short trips are made per day on diverse terrain. You will need to manage controlled descents in variable conditions. All participants should feel comfortable on challenging blue or black-level resort runs and be able to carry a loaded daypack while skinning up variable degrees of terrain.

  • Due to the varied terrain (wide, narrow, flat, and steep), location and length of tour, this adventure is for intermediate to advanced backcountry skiers, meaning you need to have previous backcountry skiing experience. You will be skiing, touring, and summiting on glaciated terrain for multiple hours every day. The terrain is very varied and you’ll ski or snowboard across large walls and couloirs. Your guide will take care of the planning, oversee your technique, and teach you how to better manage the terrain. They also have the experience and avalanche training necessary to keep you safe.
