Ski and Sail 2022

Join us for a seven day long Sail & Ski expedition in Lyngen or Steigen and Lofoten.

We cooperate with guides from all over the world who wants to take their guests to new and exciting areas. Please contact us if you are a guide or want a tailor made trip.


The Ski & Sail season in Lyngen starts in March and goes on until the beginning of June. In Lyngen the mountains rise out of the sea, making for incredible views and the chance to descend from serious alpine style peaks right down to sea level. The cold arctic weather means that there’s snow right down to sea level until late in the season so you can clip on to your skis on the beach.

The boat takes up to six guests in three double cabins.

The food on board will be fresh, nutritious and mostly local to give the skiers a taste of the local culture and a once in a lifetime experience.

See this video for a taste of what Lyngen has to offer:

We are offering seven days trip with start and stop on Sundays in and out of Tromsø. But we can also arrange shorter or longer expeditions.

Ski&Sail with exclusive local food on the menu

Steigen is just a few hours sailing away from Bodø where our 51 foot sailing yacht is located. The yacht is a racing machine with a comfort that will satisfy both keen sailors as well as adventurers without sailing experience. The Steigen area is untouched, wild and pristine with easy access to the summits with our yacht. One of the most beatifull experiences be Helldalisen, a glacier, at 1351 metres. We kick in to our skis on the beach an walk all the way up before skiing down the glacier again.

Our new 51 feet sailing yacht offers thrilling sailing and comfort.

We seldom run in to other skiers or sailors here, so you most likely will have the area for your self. This is a rare experience you will not find in places like Lyngen where there is a lot of skiers on every summit. You will have a experienced local guide on every tour.

The food on board will be local such as reindeer, elk, fresh cod and Red King Krab served with suitable wines. This is a high end Ski & Sail tour so we only take four guests – but we can ad one more sailing yacht to the expedition to accommodate more guests on request.

Start from Bodø every Saturday-Saturday from Februar to May.
Please contact us for price offers.

Bodø is only 90 minutes away from Oslo with plane, and the tickets are moderately priced. See for flights.
