Sample itinerary from the Operator

Day 1

You arrive to Tromsö, we meet and the skipper welcomes us aboard. The boat is in Tromsö harbour and easily accessed by airport transfer from the airport. When all are on board we leave Tromsö for Vanöya and Arnöya. After 5-6 hours of sailing, we will arrive in the harbour where the first night will be spent.

Day 2

Our first tour day will offer several pleasant, easier tour options on Vanöya and Arnöya (situated side by side). We start off quite easy to get an impression of the group. Today we will only climb 600-700 m.
 When we return from the tour, the boat is waiting for us and after a coffee break we will move on to Ulvyöa, about 3-4 hours sailing.
In the evenings, you have the possibility to go fishing, from the boat or by taking the dinghy for a spin.

Day 3

Today´s tour crosses the island Ulvöya. We start from our morning position, walk up the mountain and ski down on the other side. We will arrive in Hamnäs, where the boat meets us up and we can fill up our provisions. The night will be spent in the harbour.

Day 4

When we wake up in Hanmäs, we have several tour options for the day. We can go straight from the harbour or start the day by sailing two hours to Koppangen. When coming down to the boat, we only have 1,5h sailing to Lyngseidet, where we have dinner and spend the night.

Day 5

Lyngseidet is the biggest community on the peninsula of Lyngen. Today’s tour options are Rörnestinden rising 1,041 meters above sea level or Kavringtinden – 1,289 m. Both peaks give you a wonderful view over the ocean both on the eastern and westerns side of Lyngen. The afternoon sailing goes to the northern side of Lyngen, where we dock in Norlenangen.

Day 6

Storgalten, ”the big pig”, despite its name, is a beauty rising straight up from the harbour and is our given goal for today. With a 1,219 m height it offers great skiing.
The afternoon and evening will be spent sailing to Åldervika.

Day 7

Last tour day for this week. We have the beautiful Ulltind before us, yet another great skiing experience with a sea view. The tour starts in Olderdalen and ends on the other side in Snarby, where the boat will be waiting for us.

Today’s sailing will take us back to Tromsö. It is about three hours sailing.

The last night will be spent in Tromsö, offering you the possibility to explore the city with the most bars per capita in the north, also called “Paris of the North”.

Day 8

Time to go home!

If you would like, you can extend your trip and stay some extra nights in Tromsö.

This is a standard program that may have to be adjusted to snow conditions, tide, weather and wind.

For groups that book a private week we can run a program from Saturday to Saturday. Then we will make a shorter ski tour on Friday and finish in Tromsö on Friday at 2pm. We spend the last night in a hotel in Tromsö before flying home on Saturday.
