As you arrive at the Tromso Airport, your guides will pick you up and transfer you to the sailboat where you’ll be welcomed by the friendly crew. Check and store your gear, explore the boat and get comfortable in your cabin. As your group gathers, you’ll retrieve any needed rental gear, review the boat, and receive a safety briefing by your guides and skipper. Once you’re all set, get ready to set sail towards your first destination and share a meal with your group.
Over the course of the next six days, you’ll spend most of your time skiing! Your guides have the knowledge and flexibility to select and change spots according to prevailing weather and snow conditions. After breakfast and assessment, you’ll have a say about the final choice of the spot for the day and head out for 4-8 hours of ski touring! Once you’re done for the day, return to the boat and enjoy nourishing après ski snacks. Relax and rest prior to dinner and sail on to the next day’s spot.
After six days of ski touring and getting to know your group, you’ll arrive at the port in the morning and disembark. Take a few last pictures, exchange contact information and head to the airport!
What you get in this adventure:
What’s not included:
Sailing and skiing in Lyngen Alps is ideal for intermediate to advanced backcountry skiers. Every day, you will travel up to 8 hours, with ascents from 4 to 9km and peaks ranging from 800m to 1500m. Slope angles are mostly between 25-30 degrees over glacier plateaus, but you can reach as much as 40 degrees and deep powder if you opt for gorges and the steeper lines. All participants should feel comfortable on black level resort runs as you will be skiing on glaciated terrain with variable snow conditions. Experience with sailing is not necessary.
Due to the terrain, location and length of tour, this adventure is for intermediate to advanced backcountry skiers. If you’re just starting out, we recommend heading out for some intro touring with a guide and gaining some backcountry experience.
