Sail through the magnificent Norwegian fjords aboard your 48ft catamaran, captained by the knowledgeable Håkon, who has been sailing the waters of the Lyngen Alps since he was a boy. By day, you will summit breathtakingly scenic mountains with your professional guide and ski back down to the glistening sea below on northern Norway’s perfect spring snow. As you sail to your new mooring each day, keep an eye out for the friendly locals – in the form of orcas, humpbacks, grey seals, and eagles!
Spend your evenings enjoying après ski onboard, whilst soaking up the ambiance of the rustic surroundings. Take a refreshing plunge in the crisp arctic waters after unwinding in a Scandinavian sauna and savour the invigorating sensation that only the Norwegians truly understand. Cast your line and catch fresh seafood for dinner. And if the heavens are clear, gaze up and behold the breath-taking Northern Lights – a mystical phenomenon that you will remember forever.

Staying on a 48ft "floating hotel", you will tour around the most spectacular peaks in Norway's Lyngen Alps with your captain and guide. Spend 5 days ski touring some of the most scenic backcountry terrain on the planet. Expect (mostly) calm waters, spectacular wildlife encounters and a whole lot of fun with your fellow skiers/snowboarders.
Flying into Tromsø you will take a short 10 minute taxi to the city where you will spend a night at a 4-star hotel right next to the harbour. The following morning you will then embark on your voyage into the Lyngen Alps, where you will spend the next 5 nights. Your final night will be spent back at the hotel in Tromsø to maximise your time onboard and on the mountain.

Our hosted trips take place in March and April. If the dates don't suit or you would like to organise a private trip, please get in touch and we'll be happy to assist.
Life on the Boat
Your heated 48-ft catamaran is equipped with 3 double occupancy guest cabins, 4 toilets with showers, storage area and a kitchen where evening meals will be prepared each day. The lounge is the real gem on this vessel, with ample seating, space and 360-degree views of your surroundings. You can also relax outside on the trampoline when the weather is nice. Your captain, Håkon, is an expert sailor and fully certified captain, having worked his entire live at sea (previously as a fisherman in the Barents Sea). He has a wealth of knowledge on the local area, and has a lot of stories to tell (when prompted!).
With 5 full days of skiing/snowboarding, you will have the opportunity to ski four of the best backcountry regions in the country; Ringvassoy, Nordlenangen, Lynge and Uløya. Weaving in and out of the islands and fjords, there is no shortage of incredible views of both mountains and sea. The small group of 6 will be led by a professional mountain guide who will will tailor the days to the ability and objectives of the group – from open bowls and gentle meadows to steep chutes and couloirs, there’s a little something for everyone. This time of year usually provides more reliable weather with longer day light hours, perfect for spring skiing and uphill travel.
Mabey Ski has an exceptional eye for detail and no request was considered too difficult. There were so many personal touches.
We loved Mabey Ski’s approach, it was much more personable and flexible than bigger agents we have used, as they really focus on the small details as much as the big ones.
The attention to detail was second to none. The whole experience was enchanting and fulfilled our desire for adventure – thank you Mabey Ski!
Their team goes above and beyond; they think of every detail. I cannot recommend their experiences enough.
Mabey Ski created a fantastic trip with activities that we wouldn’t have considered. The trip combined the perfect mix of incentive, team building and business – with enough free time for everyone to relax. It was very well organised and executed.
