Join a certified mountain guide on this 9-day ski touring program in the Lyngen Alps from a boat and enjoy a wonderful adventure.
Feb, Mar, Apr, May
Join me in this ski touring and sailing adventure, from sea to summit. In this epic 9-day program, we will be ski touring in the Lyngen Alps, Norway, while sleeping and sailing on a yacht.
The program includes a visit to beautiful Tromsø, and then 5 full days ski touring. We will take off each day at the foot of a mountain. We will ascend it and then enjoy exciting descents with amazing views. Skiing from a yacht means that each day we step out of the boat and put on our skis to start a new adventure.
There are different types of routes:
– Return: we start at the beach, then ascend and descend as many times as possible, to end the ski day at the starting point.
– Lokon: we start at the beach, then ascend and descend down to a different beach on the same riverside.
– Traverse: from the starting point at the beach, we ascend a peak and descend on the other side of the island (this is the case of the Uloya island).
I know the area extremely well and there are many possible routes of varied difficulties.
Some mountains in the Tromsø region where we can ski are: Nordfjellet (1000m), Ullstinden (1078m) and Rema 1000 (Soltindan).
In the Lyngen Alps, we can ski in Uloya (1139m), Blaatinden (1142m), the northern summit of Nordmannviktinden (1335m), Sorbmegaisa (1288m), Storehaugen (1142m), Kjelvagtinden (1064m) and Store Kagtinden (1228m).
We will decide the exact itinerary depending on your level, the snow conditions and the wind direction. During late February and March, we will mainly enjoy powder snow. Then, in April and early May there will be a combination of powder and spring snow.
Arrival to Oslo or Tromsø. Transfer from the airport to the hotel.
Today we visit Tromsø. We will also take the time to check the equipment and make the final preparations for the trip.
At 7PM we board the Southern Star, and spend our first night onboard.
During these ski touring days, the type of terrain on which we will ski, as well as the ascents/descents, will depend on the level of the participants. In general, we will ascend 800-1200 meters per day.
We will spend the nights on the boat. If the weather allows (clear nights and cold weather), we might see the Aurora Borealis!
Final evening and overnight on the boat.
9AM transfer to the airport.
Hotel in Tromsø, on the boat during the ski week.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
