Explore the spectacular Lyngen Alps with this 7-day ski touring and sailing trip. IFMGA-certified guide Todd takes you on this adventure of a lifetime, starting in the city of Tromso in Northern Norway.
Sailing in the remote fjords of Norway to slide on amazing untouched powder is definitely an experience of a lifetime! I invite you to join me on this 7-day adventure around the Lyngen Alps for an unforgettable ski touring and sailing trip in northern Norway, within the Arctic Circle.
Our adventure starts in the city of Tromso. During this one-week trip, we will be staying at the SkyDancer sailboat, where we will sleep comfortably and eat delicious meals. It accommodates up to 8 guests and 2 guides.
Every day, we will explore a new island. We will enjoy a deep connection with nature, as the sailboat slides quietly getting us close to majestic mountains and unique wildlife. We will head north to the enchanted fjords of Norway, where the days are long and incredible skiing possibilities await us. We can ski at the pace your group desires, as aggresively or as easy-going as you like.
You will be amazed by the natural beauty of stunning mountains rising straight up from the sea in the Lyngen Alps. You will discover a land with a wide variety of terrain, ideal for amazing ski tours.
We will plan our tours according to the weather conditions, looking to reach the best spots for a unique skiing adventure. Most of the peaks here are in the 2200-3500′ range. Our day will begin with a good breakfast and, after checking our equipment, we will be ready to get out and chase the powder.
We will start at the beach and a round trip will take us about 6 to 8 hours. Back in the boat, it will be time to enjoy dinner, chill out, fish, sail and plan the next day’s itinerary.
So book your trip if you want to be part of this unique adventure in the Lyngen Alps! Send me a request and let’s start planning this amazing trip in Norway. I also guide a ski and sailing trip in Svalbard. Check it out!

I have booked the backcountry ski for 3 days and did only 1/2 - 1 day. Hiking uphill is much too exhausting for me, although I am in reasonable condition. For sure this must be much better communicated towards customers, that they need in ultimate condition. So spending 1200 USDollars and having only '1 day done' is not a great experience. Can I get some of the money back?
Todd is a very experienced guide who knows the area like the palm of his hand. He tailored a plan that adapted perfectly to the conditions and our group, and he got us to some great powder even after 1 week since the last snowfall! We had a great time and I will for sure call Todd again next year when I return to Utah!
