Sail through the magnificent Norwegian fjords aboard a 45ft catamaran, captained by a knowledgeable local skipper who knows the waters of the Lyngen Alps inside out. 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.

A 30% deposit is required to reserve your spot.

Staying on a 45ft "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 great sailing, spectacular wildlife encounters and a whole lot of fun with your fellow skiers and snowboarders.

Starting in Tromsø, you will head northeast into the Lyngen Alps, where you will explore various islands and summit spectacular peaks by day.

Advanced groups: You should have a good level of fitness and be able to hike up to 1000 vertical metres per day. It is preferred that the group has previous ski touring experience and a good level of ski experience.

We can also cater for Expert groups, as well as Beginner ski touring groups as long as the group has good ski experience, and are all at a similar level.

Expect to spend 4-7 hours per day going uphill and skiing back down. The terrain will be chosen according to the group's ability and preferences – there is something for everyone, from open mellow bowls to steep, challenging couloirs.

We recommend travelling in March or April. Please get in touch and we can discuss options and dates in more detail.

Life on the Boat

Your heated 45-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 saloon is a real gem, with ample seating, space and 360-degree views of your surroundings. You can also relax outside on the trampoline on the bow when the weather is nice. Your knowledgeable, fully certified captain will take your group to the best spots in the Lygnen Alps based on the conditions.

Ski Terrain

During your days on board, you will have the opportunity to ski four of the best backcountry regions in the country; Ringvassoy, Nordlenangen, Lyngen 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.

Hawkins Family, UK

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.

Bryant Family, UK

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.
