Description

The Lyngen Alps are a truly stunning mountain range in northeastern Norway. More than 90 kiometres long and following the path of the Lyngen fjord, this region is spectacular!

After setting sail we are going to pass through some of the most stunning landscapes you can imagine. Fjords, mountains and glaciers will surround us and, with the boat as transport, we can reach ski lines that would otherwise be unreachable.

Even without the skiing, just sailing in this location is epic with summit to sea views all day everyday. Our daily routine will look something like this: We sail during the night, have breakfast on the boat, ski-tour in the morning, enjoy a picturesque lunch at the top and then ski back to the boat.

Once on the boat we will dine on local fish, relax in a sauna or take an artic water plunge. And even if all that weren´t enough, we will also get to enjoy the Northern Light. So far, we got to see them on all our trips in the area!

Another beauty of having the boat is that we have great flexibility. We can choose where we want to go and assess the weather conditions as we travel and therefore pick the best lines.

The Lyngen Alps is renowned for its powder snow and this will be available whether on open glades that arrive to the ocean or on steep couloirs.

On this 8-day program, we will enjoy 6 days of ski touring. You can expect to climb about 1000-1200 metres per day for 6 days. For this reason, you should be reasonable fit to enjoy this schedule and ideally have some ski touring experience.

Along with myself, there will be other highly experienced and certified guides to ensure the trip runs as smoothly as possible. We will observe your technique and will happily give you feedback and tips.

So how does sailing through fjords and skiing from summit to sea sound? Sign up now for this unforgettable trip in pristine wilderness and I’ll be waiting to share it with you!

Accommodation

We hire the boat from a local charter company with a long history and skippers with great knowledge of the area. It is very comfortable and safe 47-foot long yacht with 5 cabins and 5 bathrooms + showers with a common area and kitchen. We will be maximum of 7 guests guided by certified guide and professional skipper. There will be 2 groups so you can choose between faster and slower one. Fjords are normally pretty calm waters, so you don't have to be worried about sea sickness.

About the guide

I'm a UIAGM certified guide, skitouring-freeride and heliski guide. I'm a lifelong skier, climber and mountaineer, born in Prachovske skaly, a famous sandstone climbing area in the Czech Republic.
I've personally participated in 13 expeditions to 8thousander peaks and stood 5 times on an 8000m peak. I have guided guests on all continents (7 summits, etc..) in numerous treks, climbing or skitouring expeditions.
I run a guiding company in Prague and work for Patagonia, SKI TRAB and ABS avalanche backpacks. I spend my winter guiding in the Northern hemisphere, including heliski in Lappland (SWE), ski touring in Morocco or enjoying the best powder snow on earth in Japan.
The rest of the time I'm on expeditions in Nepal or South America and I spend most of the summer climbing in my hometown or guiding in the Alps.
I like Czech beer and food, passionate guests and jokes. If I'm not available my team will guide you instead.
