Experience the most breathtakingly raw nature the Arctic has to offer as you ski and sail through the arctic landscape of this stunning natural environment. Navigating your way through the sheltered inside passages and breathtaking fjords of the north, you will reach areas accessible only by boat, ready to ski the natural pistes in this icy landscape.
From the snowy kingdom of Svalbard to the mountainous Lofoten archipelago and looming Icelandic fjords, you will be able to trek up and ski down mountains in this vast wilderness. The possibilities are endless as you descend from up to 1000 metres all the way down to the beach, sail through narrow fjord entrances overlooked by the steepest cliffs, and relax under the magical glow of the Northern Lights. All whilst sailing from mountain to piste with your fellow adventurers.
For those of you who seek a more challenging holiday and love the idea of alpine skiing and randonné in untouched northern Norway, whatever your skill level, these adventures are for you.
Ski and Sail Lyngen is an adventure for those of you who want to sail to the foot of a mountain, prepare your skis and skins on the beach, ascend and then ski down the purest, powdery hills Norway can offer.

Will I be able to book my trip cheaper if I go to the operator directly?
No, not at all. At the time you book you’ll be paying the best price possible.
What do I need to wear?
Each trip listing has a suggested kit list. This is a good starting point, but you are welcome to bring additional kit.
Can I bring a hard suitcase?
Ideally not. Space on boats is always limited and you don’t want to end up sharing you bunk with your suitcase! Soft luggage such as duffel bags and rucksacks are your best bet.
