Description

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.

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!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
