Ski and sail from Lyngen Alps to Finnmark

Skiing and sailing, what could be better!

We have been starting sking and sailing in 1993 on a small sailing boat, owned by a french man Frederique Meunier and we pionnered this ski and sail trip around Tromso.

This is really the most beautiful compromise that you could imagine, when stepping onto the beach with your skis, and then break trail up the mountain overlooking the sea.

Our base camp is our boat for 6 days and gives us the opportunity to go where nobody else can. An unmissable experience for anyone who enjoys ski touring and the wonders of unspoilt nature.

The Lyngen alps are famous for sharp peaks, and steep couloir 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 between Tomso and Alta the Finnmark's main village, with spectacular scenery, including the northern lights.

The trip starts in Tromso and end in Alta.

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, a skipper and a a Star Chef, for a unique and local culinary experience.

The guide is with us also as teacher and coach, and makes it possible for us to attempt some more challenging skiing and summits.

There is no fixed program for these 6 days, but the goal will be to ski the most beautiful mountains from Tromso to the Finnmark peninsula.

Our long experience on these ski and sail trips allow us to adjust our program every day to choose the best snow and most beautifull ski tour.

Skiing and sailing has become more and more popular for the last 10 years with many more skiers and boats, this is why we have decided to sail toward Finnmark and Alta, as this area is nearly unknown and virgin of ski tourer.
