Description

Join me on an epic 7-day ski trip in the Lyngen Alps in northern Norway, where we’ll sail around on a 50-meter, three-masted sailing ship in search of the best slopes.

We’ll avoid the crowds and get better access to pristine powder by choosing the sailing route. This will also give us spectacular views of fjords and islands along the way. We might even catch the Northern Lights which can be seen in the area until mid-April.

Our adventure will begin in Tromsø where we’ll board the beautiful Rembrandt Van Rijn sailboat. The Rembrandt will be our home for 7 days, as we explore the mountains of Arctic Norway. These mountains include:

-Arnoyhogda
-Stoltindn
– Øksfordjøkelen
-Nordmannsfjellet

Each day will start with breakfast on board, after which, we’ll make our way to shore to start our ascent into the mountains for hours of mountaineering and skiing. During the afternoons, we’ll sail to our next destination, giving you time to rest, socialise or take photos of the breathtaking scenery.

All meals are included, and you have two choices of accommodation-  a single bed in a budget-friendly twin cabin without a porthole, or for €300 more, you can reserve a single bed in a larger twin cabin with a porthole. All cabins have a private bathroom complete with a shower.

To take this trip, you should be comfortable skiing off-piste and on black runs. We’ll be walking for around 5-7 hours every day in challenging terrain, so you’ll also need a good level of fitness.

Sign up today and don’t miss this once in a lifetime experience to sail around northern Norway.
