Welcome aboard an unforgettable journey!

The Lyngen Alps stretch North to South over more than 80 kilometers. Their snowy slopes hurtle down to the peaceful waters of Ullfjord to the West and Lyngenfjord to the East. In this area and the neighboring islands, you will discover a new ski trek everyday, organized in accordance with weather and snow conditions and the group’s technical level. The navigation area is protected from the great offshore swell, so much so that you will often have the impression of being on a high-altitude lake rather than at the sea.

In this idyllic setting, our crew of professional instructors (high-mountain guide and high-sea guide) will handle logistics, so that you may enjoy each site fully, with all safety and comfort.

The interface between the sea and mountains leaves no room for improvisation. The combination of sea and mountain activities requires excellent knowledge of the field and a close collaboration within the “sea/mountain” team.

The package includes not only a first-rate floating chalet and the resources of a high-mountain guide, we also insure, point by point, all aspects for a successful journey. For example, the simple fact of landing with wet feet means you’re out for the coming ski trek. We make sure this and many other little things don’t happen. Leave the worry to us: we live in the area year round, we speak the language of the country, we know local ways and customs, as well as the constraints imposed by the activities we organize. We undeniably bring that huge little extra to the groups who come to us and fully trust our vigilance.

Program of the trip

Weeks stretch from Saturday to Saturday. Boarding is at 7 pm, disembarking is at 9 am.

Each day, you will land with your guide on the beach, at the foot of the slope. You will put on your skis at the bank and you won’t take them off until you reach the water again. It is possible to run 6 treks in the course of one week, weather conditions permitting. We have selected 20 treks which run back and forth, in a loop or from point A to point B: each is tailored to give the group a top satisfaction.

As the snow remains stable throughout the day, it is not necessary to land in the middle of the night. The trek takes place in full day from beginning to the end. After a solid breakfast, you will take off to the mountain. Expect to go up 800 to 1,400 meters. Upon your return, a sturdy ”lunch” will be served to allow you to wait until the evening’s meal. In general, we sail to the following trek site in the late afternoon. Our cockpit is covered: this means you may help with steering and participate in navigation maneuvers, if you wish, without suffering from the weather.

Every night, we will be moored at anchor or docked at a pier. That will be the moment to enjoy a hot shower and a good night sleep. As for evenings, our traveling base camp offers all the comfort and warmth you may be wishing for in an arctic clime. Clothing, slippers and skins are stretched out every evening in the drying area. ”Southern Star” is based year-round in Tromsø. Consequently, the technical preparation of the boat and all her safety gear is adapted to the polar regions. For this journey, you won’t need to worry about cooking, which will be handled by one of the crew members.

Skis and fastenings, batons, shoes, knives, avalanche transceiver, spade, probe, crampons, ice axe (not required), harness, 2 screw lock carabiners, seal skins in good shape.
