Welcome aboard and sail to Lyngen
At 12:00 we will meet in front of Scandic Ishavshotel and walk on board.
Since winter in Tromsø is particularly frosty, hot soup and coffee/tea will be waiting for you in the boat.
There will be time for everyone to settle in and distribute their luggage in their cabins and storage compartments before a short safety briefing.
We set sail accompanied by the colours of the sunset, on the first leg of the journey to the Lyngen fjord.
There, we meet our mountain guide and, after a short introduction and planning of the following day’s trip, we will have dinner before bedtime.
First day tour
At 7:00 we rise to have breakfast together and discuss the plans for the day.
The Lyngen Alps must always be greeted with respect. The unpredictable weather, the changeable snowpack, and the endless possibilities, all need to be considered when choosing our first tour.
It is a must for us to introduce you safely to the magic of this unsurpassed alpine area and have our mountain guide with you at all times to have the extra safety considerations when exploring Lyngen for the first time. We can offer you a wide range of mountain trips, varying in length between 4 and 8 hours, and it´s up to you how long you want to be out there each day.
The boat will be waiting with hot coffee/tea and biscuits upon your return from the mountains.
Dinner is normally served around 17:00, but a different time can be arranged.
Day 3, 4, 5 ...
Second taste of Lyngen
Early breakfast on the boat
After the first experience in Lyngen, one always wants to go one better, so this is your opportunity to be creative with your tour.
Together with our mountain guide, we will decide which different places to explore safely, always accompanied by the guide.
If you require additional assistance, it is also possible for one of the crew members to join you.
Take your time in the mountains to fully enjoy the remoteness and the uniqueness of the terrain you will be treading on. This is happening for real, and we will be there to remind you to stop and look around to embrace it.
After an exhausting but mind-blowing day in the outdoors, a special dinner will be served to conclude our mountain experience.
Then, time to rest and dream while the boat rocks you to sleep.
Sailing trip back to Tromsø
We wake up early to make the best out of the day and enjoy the views of the mountains and the sea on our way back to Tromsø.
We will head back predominantly by sail, but time constraints might require us to use the engine to return to the harbour no later than 14:00.
The journey ends in Tromsø, with plenty of time to catch your flight back home or prolong your stay in the Arctic.
