The Lyngen Alps offer an endless playground and our boat the access to its secluded mountains. You will get to your line during the evening sail, skin up to the summit in the morning, ski down with views of surrounding peaks and ocean, and finish up with eating local meals on the boat. Not to mention the Northern lights, fishing, saunas, or freezing water dips that you can enjoy.

Accommodation

Our boat

We hire the boat from a local charter company with a long history and skippers with good knowledge of the area. It is a comfortable 47-foot or 50-foot long yacht with 5 cabins and 3-4 bathrooms + showers with a common area and kitchen. There are both twin rooms (with bunk beds) and double rooms.

Lyngen fjords are calm waters so seasickness is generally not an issue on our trips. In 5 years doing the trips, there were only a handful of clients with mild and short sea sickness.

Details

Terrain

Lyngen Alps is the place to go freeriding if you are looking for powder in Scandinavia. It is tucked into the mainland so the snow is drier than in other areas. Our mission will be to ski a variety of backcountry terrain – powdery open lines, ocean runs, classic lines in the area, and couloirs (if conditions allow).

Vertical Meters

On this trip, we will sail to ski secluded places only accessed by ski touring or splitboarding. Expect around 1000 – 1200 vert. m daily within 6 days.

Who is it for?

You should have previous ski touring or splitboarding experience (at least 3 tours). You should be able to cover at least 1000 vert. m. daily for 3 days straight. 1 day off is definitely a possibility, more than that would likely hinder your experience.

Group size

We will be a maximum of 7 guests guided by a certified guide and professional skipper. There will be 2 groups (if the number of clients allows) so you can choose between a faster and​ a​ slower one.

    Expert skiers and riders

    Our classic Ski and Sail trip is a mostly open sea to summit lines with some tree-skiing. For expert skiers only we put together an alternative around the most iconic steep lines and couloirs in Lyngen. To name a few, there is Forhorlttinden, nicknamed “The Godmother of all couloirs”. Sofiatinden or Trolvastinden. Crossing the Lyngen peninsula with an amazing downhill around Storgalten is also possible.
     

    Those lines are around 40 to 45 degrees. Safety is the priority for us. If the conditions are not right, our UIAGM guide has more conservative option for each day.
