8-day Svalbard fjords “Ski & Sail” expedition in Spitsbergen, Norway
Let IFMGA certified guide Jean lead you on a 12 day ski touring adventure in the Norwegian Arctic, on the island of Spitsbergen, in the archipelago of Svalbard.
If ski touring in the Norwegian Arctic wasn’t amazing enough, on this 12 day trip you will get to do it while spending your time on a beautiful boat. Comfortable, with great food and accommodations, another great advantage of spending your time on a boat is that it will take you to the best spots in Spitsbergen. As a result, there is no limit to the mount of untouched slopes you can enjoy on a number of different peaks.
There is no set itinerary on this trip. Instead, while on the boat, we will factor in weather and snow conditions, as well your skill level and preferences, and choose the best spots for you. And while the spots will differ wildly, what they will all have in common is amazing descents, memorable coastal views and immersion in the remote beauty of the Arctic circle.
In order to participate on this trip, you should be in good physical condition. Furthermore, because of the wild nature of the slopes and landscape, you should have prior ski touring experience as well.
When it comes to unique ski touring conditions, you can’t do better than the Svalbard archipelago in the Norwegian Arctic. If you want to enjoy this great 12 day adventure, just send me a request.
