Ski & Sail Lyngen is an adventure for those of you who want to sail to the foot of a mountain, prepare your skis and skins on the beach, ascend and then ski down the purest, powdery hills Norway can offer. Ski & Sail is a trip for those of you who enjoy challenges and want to experience something unique, wild, raw and beautiful – whether you’re experienced or a beginner.

This trip starts in Tromsø and finishes in Alta, meaning we will have the full week of 8 days (6 skiing days) of sailing and skiing in the areas of Lyngsalpene, Kågen, Kvænangsfjorden, Øksfjordhalvøya and for our final leg we sail through Altafjorden; not only a super exciting area for pristine randonee skiing, but also for sailing.

Springtime here in the far north are super beautfiul! With the sun high in the sky almost 24 hours a day and the glimmering peaks with its snowy hills towering above the deep blue water beneath us. The nature we visit on this trip are super spectacular and also quite untouched. We start with our skis on the beach and ascend worldclass alpine peaks. With a seaview you can almost not find anywhere else in the world while you ski!

The ski-tours we complete during our trips will be planned in plenary, according to the skill level of the group, weather, and conditions in general. After our daily ascensions we set sail for the next port and prepare ourselves for the following day. This is an active trip with full focus on the experiences this wild nature has to offer, whether it’s behind the wheel of the boat or with skis on your feet. The luxury of having a ski guide onboard also means we want to maximize our time in the mountains and ascend new hills every day. The mussel pain and tiredness can wait until we get back home:)

For most of our Ski and Sail trips we sail two boats together, with each boat having its own ski guide. The number of boats during our trip depends on the number of participants. If we have enough participants for two boats we also have more flexibility to divide the group in two according to skill level and experience amongst the participants.

This trip starts in Tromsø and finishes in Alta. See Program for meeting time and more information. There is corresponding transport both ways.

We offer this trip reversed the following week, starting in Alta and finishing in Tromsø. Read more about this trip in the activity calendar.

The boats we will be using for Ski and Sail Lyngen and Finnmark are “Humla”, "Bien" and “Nirvana”, a 50, 50 and 44 ft. boat, respectively. These boats have good comfort and enough space for 6-8 participants + ski guide and skipper. Read more about our boats here.
