Sailing and Ski Touring in Lyngen, Norway
Far up in the northern part of Norway there is a peninsula called Lyngen. On this peninsula, and on the islands around, beautiful mountains rise up from the ocean and give us great opportunities for ski touring. The view over the fjords is indescribable and the shapes of the mountains offer superb back country off piste skiing.
To give an even greater experience we offer you this opportunity to stay on a big sailing boat taking us around the area between the different ski tours. You can not get closer to nature and its elements than this. Sailing will take us to the peaks, uphill we will go by muscle power and downhill we will get to enjoy great skiing.
If you prefer to stay in cottages & use the roads to go between the different peaks please check out http://www.mountainguide.se/default2.asp?Id=9&languageId=44
See our web page about the sailing boat in the menu to the right.
Minimum 6, Max 8 guests to one Mountain Guide.
Program for the week
This is a standard program that may have to be adjusted to snow conditions, tide, weather and wind.
Day 1, Saturday
You arrive to Tromsö, we meet and the skipper welcomes us aboard. The boat is in Tromsö harbour and easily accessed by airport transfer from the airport. When all are onboard we leave Tromsö for Vanöya and Arnöya. After 5-6 hours of sailing we will arrive in the harbour where the first night will be spent.
Day 2, Sunday
Our first tour day will offer several pleasent, easier tour options on Vanöya and Arnöya (situated side by side). We start off quite easy to get an impression of the group. Today we will make 600-700m vertical.
When we return from the tour the boat is waiting for us and after a coffee break we will move on to Ulvyöa, about 3-4 hours sailing.
In the evenings you have the possibility to go fishing, from the boat or by taking the dinghy for a spin.
Day 3, Monday
Today´s tour crosses the island Ulvöya. We start from our morning position, walk up the mountain and ski down on the other side. We will arrive in Hamnäs where the boat meets up and we can fill up our provisions. The night will be spent in the harbour.
Day 4, Tuesday
When we wake up in Hanmäs we have several tour options for the day. We can go straight up in to the from the harbour or start the day by sailing two hours to Koppangen. When coming down to the boat we only have 1,5h sailing to Lyngseidet where we have dinner and spend the night.
Day 5, Wednesday
Lyngseidet is the biggest society on the peninsula of Lyngen. Today’s tour options are Rörnestinden rising 1041 meters above sea level or Kavringtinden 1289 m vertical. Both peaks give you a wonderful view over the ocean both on the eastern and westerns side of Lyngen. The afternoon sailing goes to the northern side of Lyngen where we dock in Norlenangen.
Day 6, Thursday
Storgalten, ”the big pig”, despite its name, a beauty rising straight up from the harbour and is our given goal for today. With a vertical of 1219 m it offers great skiing.
The afternoon and evening will be spent sailing to Åldervika.
Day 7, Friday
Last tour day for this week. We have the beautiful Ulltind before us, yet another great skiing experience with a sea view. The tour starts in Olderdalen and ends on the other side in Snarby where the boat will be waiting for us.
