    Going so far North sounded crazy at the beginning, but it was totally worth it. I can't wait to do it again.

NEW FRIENDS AHEAD

A trip to the Arctic alone may not be your go-to choice, but you won't be going alone.

You will join a team of 9 old and new friends. Sailing, fishing, hiking, and skiing together, allowing you to connect in a meaningful way with one another.

We don't lie when we tell you that most people on these trips make friendships that last a lifetime.

3-HOUR SUNSETS. 16 HOURS OF LIGHT.

Spring, from March until end of May

Spring is the best possible time for ski touring in Norway. Potential blue skies. Great wind conditions. And the most important thing of all: good snow.

Visitors to the Lyngen Alps can revel in everlasting sunsets during this time of year. 

Few people experience skiing with ocean views by day and sleeping aboard a yacht by night. So, if waking up to dolphins swimming beside you as you sail doesn’t make you feel like you’ve embarked on the trip of a lifetime, nothing will. 

Come, ski, sail and relax in your very own floating hotel for an unforgettable week in the arctic. 

OCEANIC COMFORT AND LUXURY

Living in a yacht truly adds to the excitement of the whole trip.

The catamaran offers you four double-cabins, four bathrooms, and a kitchen, plus a saloon. It carries up to 8 guests along with the skipper and a mountain guide.

We searched for decades to bring you this catamaran - the most luxurious and comfortable way to roam the Northern Seas. 

This ship sails around the Fjords surrounding stunning Tromsø, offering you an inspiring haven to gaze at the extraordinary scenery around you. 

You can rest easy, knowing that your Skipper and mountain guide will keep you safe at all times while navigating these Arctic waters.

Fresh Fish Friends Lyngen Alps

EAT. FRESH. FISH.

From the Arctic Ocean to the dinner table.

Fresh Fish Friends Lyngen Alps

It is no secret, spending all day hiking and skiing in cold weather takes energy.

To ensure your well-being throughout the entire tour, you will be served fresh fish (most likely caught by you) as a dinner meal. Are you veg? No problem, we will have you covered too.

Breakfast, snacks, and dinner will be provided to you daily so you can make the most of this trip with only one thing in mind: enjoying the present moment.

Eat. Fresh. Fish. Always.
