NORWAY SKIING AND SAILING THE FJORDS
March to April
Begginners to advanced backcountry skiers
We offer one trip a year in the Scandinavian country based out of Tromso or Alta depending on the year, this trip is ran in March/ April and is a ski touring trip using an old wooden sailing boat as a home. We sail for a week in the fjords above the Arctic Polar Circle climbing and ski touring in remote peaks of the Lyngen Alps. The boat holds 8 guests + 2 UIAGM-IFMGA-IVBV mountain guides.
It is not possible to say exact where to go, but we have been to 41 mountains in the area. The weather decides what route to make, but in general it is very protected fjord and landings are friendly. We can actually stay inside one fjord for a week and do new mountains every day.
It is a full week living onboard, with excellent Norwegian cuisine. Each morning after breakfast we take small dhingy to go onshore with our skis, ski tour for the day, normally we do Around 800/ 1300 mts elevation gain a day. In the afternoon we go back for some snack and move location to ski in different place next day.
Clients have to have previous experience in Ski Touring, able to gain 1200 to 1500 mts elevation gain on skins. Could be a trip for begginers ski tourers since they can do shorter objectives being 2 guides available.
