Join IFMGA certified guide Josef for this amazing 8-day ski touring trip in the stunning landscape of the Lyngen Alps of Norway!
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!

I had a fantastic time on the Sherpas Ride ski and sail trip in Norway. The weather was challenging but Votja figured out how to make the best of it, keeping it fun and safe. The other clients in our group were great people. I would happily adventure with Sherpas Ride again.
We had a fantastic ski and sail trip with Sherpas Ride! The views and ski lines were memorable. Vojta kept us safe and smiling the whole trip!
Vojta and Tomáš create a pleasant and enjoyable atmosphere and always look for the best snow conditions in the region. You will enjoy the best skiing experience ever!
Definitely provided one of the best sports experiences I've ever had. Organization and support was great, staff very competent and ambitious. Skis and boards provided, guides were able to find the best powder lines on the mountains. Big thumbs up!
