Day-to-day expedition program

Wednesday – arrival Svolvaer

In the afternoon guests will arrive and get to know each other as well as the boat and its equipment. Together you will put together a plan for the long weekend. We prepare to sail early the next morning and if the weather is good and we are ready we will go that same evening.

If you arrive at Svolvær early it’s recommended that you hike one of the peaks that surround the town.

Thursday

Full day’s skiing in the mountains around Austnesfjord; Geitgaljertind, if the conditions are right for it.

Friday

Unless the conditions poor we go to Trollfjorden to climb the 975 metre summit. You will be onshore with skis on early in the morning before the sun has had a chance to heat the snow too much and head up the mountain.

Saturday

Top skiing from Trollfjorden and Trollheimen.

Sunday

Climbing peaks in Raftsundet before sailing southward back to Svolvaer. The trip ends in the afternoon.

This programme should be viewed as a starting point, which will be adapted for weather and snow conditions as well as guests’ wishes. If we end up somewhere without snow we simply sail to a place where there is. Aboard the yachts we have dinghies and kayaks to go ashore and for small expeditions. There is fishing gear to catch supper and camping and hiking equipment for campfires on the summits. Everything is set for an unforgettable ski & sail expedition!
