DETAILS

Sail, ski, repeat! This is the ultimate ski experience you did not know existed, until now. Get on a comfortable catamaran and sail to the Lyngen Alps for sailing, 5 days of ski touring, fishing and exploring. Join with a group of friends, or book a cabin and meet a new group of ski friends!

Just imagine packing your ski gear, loading them onto a comfortable catamaran with your friends or join a group of new ski friends and getting ready to sail to the Lyngen Alps for a 5 days/6 nights unique sail to ski adventure. Open a map, choose a mountain, sail to it, skin to the top, stop for lunch at the summit, ski down while glancing at peaks soaring 1200 meter fjords straight from the sea all around you. After a long day on the mountain, come back to your boat for a quick arctic plunge, warm shower and potentially stop at a fishing spot to catch some protein for dinner.

This is a once in a lifetime ski experience for those wanting a more secluded, unique and magical skiing adventure. The sun is out for 15-20 hours a day starting in April, which means there is plenty of time to explore as much as possible. We have 2 catamarans available, each sleeping 6 guests (2 in each cabin). The week includes a certified ski guide, and skipper along with breakfast, lunch and dinner made to cater your dietary wants and needs. You can either choose to rent the boat out for a group of friends or book a double cabin (2 people max) and meet a new group of ski friends.

The Golden Eagle is a unique Lagoon 440 Catamaran with luxurious accommodation, rebuilt and equipped for the Arctic environment. Onboard we have the opportunity to host larger groups up to 12 people. We have emphasized modern features for explorers who may be in search of that little extra touch of comfort in our large VIP cabin while cruising the Norwegian Fjords around Tromso and Lyngen.

  • Passenger Capacity: 12
  • Cruising Speed: 7-9 Knots

Itinerary

List View

Get ready to be amazed by the breathtaking snowy mountain ranges in the far north. After arriving in Tromsø, we will meet at our base camp in central Tromsø to grab a coffee, tea, or snacks before heading onto the boat. This is the perfect time to pick up your rental gear, last minute snacks, or other items you may need for your trip. At 15:00, you will meet your guide who will check your gear, along with planning the itinerary for the coming days. Your skipper will introduce the boat to you, run a safety briefing on what to do in case of an emergency and your ski guide will get a feel for what you are interested in throughout the week. After, you are more than welcome to grab a bite to eat in town, explore the city and enjoy. We will set sail early Sunday morning so we recommend getting comfortable on the boat and getting a good nights rest.
Each and every day we will assess the ski area based on group level and weather conditions. Your guide has a list of epic mountains to take all levels, and we will decide on our next destination the evening before. If you would like to request a certain mountain please let our team know before hand so we can try to accommodate the route. Every morning, the group will wake up to a homemade breakfast & of course, fresh coffee before making our way onto land. After ski touring, your skipper will pick you up where you can have a late lunch on the boat. If you dare to take a polar plunge (the real way to shower in the Arctic) now is the time. Afterwards, we will set sail for our next location, drop anchor in a secluded bay, cook dinner, relax, play games and enjoy the time under what is almost the midnight sun. We will arrive back to Tromsø on Thursday evening where we will sleep in Tromsø harbor for an early morning departure on Friday.
