TRIP DESCRIPTION

SKI TO THE SEA, GET ON THE SAILBOAT AND EXPLORE THE NEXT ISLAND OR TROMSØ FJORD AND THE LYNGEN ALPS

Sailing to the bottom of a mountain, putting on your skis on the beach, riding your touring skis to the top and skiing down the other side of the mountain to the next beach, where our sailboat will pick us up. This is Ski and Sail, and Northern Norway is the best place in the world to practice it.

Whether you are a beginner in ski mountaineering or an expert, you have to try this SKI and SAIL experience at least once in your life (better several times). You will enjoy a pleasant company, landscapes, sunsets, northern lights (🤞) and being able to ski to the sea.

A ski trip that starts and ends in Tromsø. We will enjoy 4 full days of skiing in the areas of the Lyngen Alps, the islands of Kågen and Arnøya, Vannøya and Ringvassøya. An immense virgin area with incredible descents of all difficulties and unevenness.

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.

ITINERARY

Day 1

SKI and SAIL: WE DEPART FROM THE PORT OF TROMSØ

We meet at 10:00 in the port of Tromsø. 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 Ullstinden (1093 m). We will go up the mountain on the west side and ski down the east side. As we go up, the sailboat will come to look for us on the other side, Ski and Sail in its purest form! In the afternoon we will sail towards Nordleangen.

Day 2-4

SKI and SAIL, SKI IN LYNGEN / KÅGEN / ULØYA OR ARNØYA

Depending on the snow conditions and the level of the group, there are plenty of options. We can cross the island of Uløya, go up to Store Kågtind (1228m), on the island of Kågen, with an impressive final pyramid completely frozen and very photogenic (but without any technical difficulty). We can also carry out different routes of all unevenness and difficulties in the Lyngen Alps peninsula itself.

Return to the port of Tromsø and farewell.

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 Tromsø and the Lyngen Alps, 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
