Description

I invite you to sail along the magical coastline between Lofoten and Tromso and enjoy untouched powder runs surrounded by a unique landscape. Join me on this 7-day trip in Northern Norway for an experience of a lifetime!

The Lofoten Archipelago is located in the county of Nordland. The seacost between Lofoten and Tromsø offers some of the most spectacular mountain scenery of the Norwegian coast. Every day, we will travel by sailboat to a new location, among stunning peaks that rise from the sea.

You will be amazed by the natural wild beauty of this area, from the magical islands in Lofoten, the majestic island of Kvaløya and the ragged mountains in Senja. Lofoten offers world class skiing and we will be able to enjoy spectacular runs on untracked powder. This area has endless opportunities for amazing skiing on untouched snow.

We will design an itinerary customized to the group’s skill level and experience. This trip is suitable for riders from intermediate to advanced level.

Our home and transport during these days will be a well equipped 73′ polar expedition sailboat. It will allow us to travel with our skis and go wherever we find the best snow conditions. Also, we will get close to wildlife and nature.

Conditions and weather may change quickly here, but we have extensive experience and local knowledge of the area. We are able to offer a flexible programme and ensure your safety above all. Besides, our captain and crew are trained by the RYA in England. They have lots international experience and also a good local knowledge of the area.

So what are you waiting for? Book your spot and let’s start planning this trip in Northern Norway together. I also offer a 7-day ski touring and sailing tour exclusively in Lofoten with more dates available. Check it out!
