An unmissable experience for anyone who enjoys ski touring and the wonders of unspoilt nature.
The Lofoten isles offers some of the purest nature Norway has to offer.
The area is famous for its alpine mountains and peaks, offering possibilities and options for a wide range of skiers.
Most of the trips offer 700 - 1000 meters of altitude and descents, and the skiing most often ends down on the beach.
Many of the most spectacular places are accessible only by boat. This is why we sail.
During these 6 days we will explore and reach many of the most beautiful mountains in Lofoten, with spectacular scenery, including the northern lights.
The trip starts and ends in Svolvær.
The skiing we plan together with the skiguide, adjusted to the group as well as weather and conditions. After skiing we sail in to the next mountain for the next day.
This is an active trip where the outdoor experiences are in focus; either behind the wheel of the boat or on the mountain with skis.
On this trip we have with us a skiguide onboard for the whole trip. The guide is with us also as teacher and coach, and makes it possible for us to attempt some more challenging skiing and summits.
On our route, we will pass or visit Svolvær, Austnesfjorden, Geitgaljertind, the Trollfjord and Raftsundet.
If you're wondering where we dine in this remote landscape... we bring a Star Chef onboard, for a unique and local culinary experience.
