Can you hear the mountains calling? What better way to enjoy your ski holiday, than this? You eat and sleep on the boat, while we sail from mountain to mountain looking for the best place to ski, and the best weather.
After a long day of skiing, we can relax in the jacuzzi, enjoying the view of the amazing scenery that is Northern Norway, while the chef prepare food onboard.
You can book a tour with captain and chef, or even with a guide from us if you don´t have one yourself in mind.
We have 3 boats we can use for this, with different capacity;
Leone will take 9-10 guests (including guide)
Strønstad will take 16 guests
Quest will take 54 guests.
What are you waiting for? Winter is coming!
Skiing trip starting from a boat
We will ski during this week between Tromso and Alta, sailing on a nice and cosy boat through the wonderful Norwegian fjords.A totally liberty will allow us to start our tour at any point in any fjord.
Cold snow, mind-blowing landscapes, regular slopes which finish by the sea, temperatures between -10 and +0 degrees C, large animals (whales, dolphins, reindeer). And of course the popular northern lights….
The climate is pleasant but the weather can change quietly, and days with wind are frequent.
Our boat, the Leone, which has been specially built for charters of this type, will be our cosy travelling refuge. Its captain drops us off every morning at the start of a route, and picks us up either in the same place, or on the far side, in a different fjord. Upon arrival, the cook will have prepared us a gargantuan afternoon snack, and then an excellent dinner. We will also be served a plenteous sportsman’s breakfast every morning. The ski mountaineering trips leave from sea level, and depending on the weather forecast, the fitness of participants and what we feel like on the day, we choose our route together: between 3 and 6/7 hours out – between 500m and 1833m of height gain… and loss of course
February till mid-May.
Up to the guests.
Meet at the boat M/S LEONE at the main harbour in Tromso, (15min taxi from the airport and directly situated in the middle of the town) for 16:00 boarding onto the ship, settling into our cabins, evening meal. According to the weather conditions, night in port, or a 5-6 hour trip. You may arrive one or two days earlier and visit Tromso and its surroundings, but at your own expense.
Days of ski mountaineering either as return trips, or traverses from fjord to fjord, according to sailing conditions, wind conditions, avalanche and snow conditions.
Breakfast time varies, and according to conditions we will sail in the morning or at night. The boat will be either on a mooring (the zodiac will transfer us to land), or on a quay (in which case, we will leave directly without recourse to the zodiac). As much as possible, we will try to traverse from fjord to fjord, or at least not use the ascent route for our descent. The boat is in radio contact with the guides, and will come and pick us up at our descent location when we reach sea level. Upon arrival on the coast, the cook will have prepared us a huge afternoon tea/ snack. Depending on conditions, we will make the most of our time fishing, sailing, or just having a nap before our evening meal.
Preparation of bags, vacation of cabins by 10:00, transfer to Tromso airport.
