TRIP DESCRIPTION

SKI TO THE SEA, GET ON THE SAILBOAT AND EXPLORE THE NEXT ISLAND OR LOFOTEN FJORD

Ski and Sail is a trip for those who enjoy a challenge and want to experience something unique, wild and authentic, whether they are a beginner to ski mountaineering or an expert.

The ascents that we complete during our trips will be planned together, according to the group’s ability level, the weather and the general conditions. After our daily ascents, we set out for the next fjord and prepare for the next day. The luxury of having a ski guide on board also means that we will make the most of our time in the mountains; always from the security that a qualified and local guide offers us.

The Lofoten Islands are famous for their impressive and dreamy landscapes. There are ascents of all levels with routes from 700 to 1000 m of unevenness to be able to ski to the beach where our sailboat awaits us.

The 44- and 50-foot sailboats are specially equipped for winter sailing in these latitudes, with heating, a drying area for ski equipment, and duvets in all cabins. There is capacity for 6 / 7 people plus the captain and the mountain guide.

Leaving from the port of Svolvær we adjust our Ski and Sail tour of 5 or 7 days so that you can enjoy an unforgettable experience to the fullest. You will enjoy a pleasant company, landscapes, sunsets, northern lights (🤞) and being able to ski to the sea

We have sailboats for Ski & Sail in the main areas of Northern Norway, the Lofoten peninsula, Tromsø, the Lyngen Alps… and the island of Svalbard. An area of pure and exceptional nature, with a thousand skiable options as we sail between them.

ITINERARY

Day 1

WE LEAVE THE PORT OF SVOLVÆR

We meet at 16:00 in the port of Svolvær. After installing and introducing ourselves, we will do a briefing on the safety and operation of the sailboat to guarantee maximum safety throughout the trip. We will leave in the direction of a small natural bay where we will spend the night anchored.

day 2

SKI and SAIL, SKI DAY IN AUSTNESFJORDEN

We have breakfast early and together with our ski guide and depending on the weather, the snow and the level of the group we will decide which peak to attack; we went ashore with the boat. Together with the guide, we will make a final decision on where to ski based on the weather, snow and wind conditions. We can choose among other options to ascend Higravtindan, Geitgaljertind, Austnesfjorden, Rundfjellet and Kvittind (these last two are more affordable peaks ideal for a first day of skiing). In the afternoon we will go to a nearby ski area.

Day 3

SKI and SAIL, SKI AREA AUSTNESFJORDEN

We stay in the same fjord (Austnesfjord) to adapt the second day of skiing to the level of demand of the group, always looking for the best snow in the area. One option is the Geitgaljen, one of the most spectacular and emblematic peaks in Lofoten. In the afternoon we will travel by sailboat sailing to the Trollfjorden fjord.

Day 4

SKI and SAIL, SKI TROLLHEIMEN FJORD

If the conditions allow it, we will carry out an impressive activity to the top of the Trollfjorden (1,100m) by a single route accessible from a sailboat. An incredible descent to the beach, where we will have dinner around a campfire and those who want will bathe in the sea!

Day 5

SKI and SAIL, SKI IN RAFTSUNDET

First thing in the morning we will go skiing to Raftsundet. After skiing we will sail back to Svolvær. Maximum at 16:00 we will be back to the port of Svolvær. We are close to the airport and there is a bus that can take you without problems.

Extra days

SKI and SAIL, EXTEND TRIP LENGTH OPTION

Some of our sailboats carry out 7-day routes, so you can have two extra days of sailing and skiing. For full boats (minimum 6 people) the days of departure, the route and the duration of the trip can be customized. Do not hesitate to contact us.

This is an approximate route, depending on the weather, risk of avalanches and level of the group, it will be adapted to guarantee maximum safety and enjoyment of all participants at all times. We will adapt the meals to the ski route and the trips on the sailboat, some days we will have dinner while sailing and others just when we arrive from skiing or when we arrive at the mooring site for the next day. We will also combine skiing with other interesting activities such as sailing, cod fishing, or simply exploring the incredible landscapes of Lofoten, including the eternal sunsets and the Northern Lights (depending on the date).

Practical information:

Physical and technical level:

For this Ski and Sail trip, a correct level of off-piste skiing and having previously done some ski touring activity (randonnee / ski touring / backcountry skiing) is required. Depending on the physical and technical level of the participants and the snow and weather conditions, the mountain guide will adapt the outings for maximum enjoyment. Do not hesitate to contact us to jointly evaluate whether you have the appropriate level of skiing.

Navigation is almost always done inside the fjords, so we rarely encounter waves. We will carry out part of our sailing and all members of the group will be able to learn all the techniques and maneuvers on board.

Safety:

As mountain professionals we not only seek the greatest enjoyment, but also the highest possible degree of safety during the activities. For this we will have personal safety and communication equipment and a sufficient first aid kit. It is advisable to have accident and rescue insurance (even though in Norway rescues are free). It is essential to follow the guide’s instructions at all times to ensure the maximum safety of the group. On the first day we will carry out DVA practices to ensure that everyone has sufficient knowledge to carry out the activity.

The safety material for sailing will be delivered upon arrival and in the same way a briefing will be carried out to guarantee maximum safety throughout the trip.

Material:

A list of materials will be provided to participants. Although it will be very similar to the material required to carry out activities in the Pyrenees or Alps. It is essential to have a DVA, shovel and probe.

Food and accommodation:

The sailboats are fully equipped with heating to be comfortable inside both when eating and sleeping. They also have a drying area to ensure that all the material is dry and warm before the next ski. Meals will be eaten on board by all members of the group. If you have allergies or preferences, let us know on the registration form and we will take it into account
