Sailing & Ski Touring in Norway | Epique - Mountain Adventures

Ski & Sail Lyngen Alps, Norway

Norway

On this seven-day trip we will sail far above the Arctic Circle, northwest of the city of Tromsø. Here lie the Lyngen Alps, Kvaløya and numerous smaller islands that are only accessible from the water. With the boat we are flexible and from the water we can reach the most beautiful remote places. After a strenuous tour day you can relax in the sauna, hot tub or on the large outside deck with an amazing view.

Why this trip?

  • Ski to the sea
  • Two guides for a group of 10 skiers and boarders
  • Meals prepared with local products and the catch of the day
  • Unique stay at Spa Boot Vulkana

Ski touring from the Vulkana

With the luxury ship Vulkana as a floating mountain hut, we sail through the fjords around Tromsø. The Vulkana has served as a fishing vessel for almost fifty years and was converted into a ‘spa and adventure ship’ in 2007. It features a Finnish sauna, a Turkish Hammam, a saltwater hot tub and a seven meter high diving tower. The chef prepares fresh meals daily using local products. From the water we have the most beautiful climbs and descents for you to choose.

Adventurous skiers and boarders with sea legs

This adventure is for skiers and snowboarders who like to visit new countries and areas to practice their favorite winter sport. Discovering a different culture and nature, meeting new people and making new friends. Not only the tours or the descents, but the combination of all elements makes this kind of travel special and different from all others – perhaps the most beautiful of your life.

Ski to the Sea

All tours on this trip in Norway begin and end at sea level. The climbs are between 800 and 1,800 meters, after which a nice descent follows. We make one long or two short trips per day. The terrain is very varied; wide, narrow, flat and steep. We ski or snowboard in large walls and through couloirs. Snow conditions range from compact snow, buttery spring snow to fresh powder. The guides always try to find the best snow and slopes for you.

If you want to learn to ski well, Epique is the right place for you!

After a long period of back pain and the subsequent surgery, I was finally able to participate in the summer training sessions at Epique again. The great thing about the trainers at Epique, in this case Roderik and 2x Gijs-Jan as a substitute, is that everyone is trained to their abilities at that moment during the training, so that everyone gets better and better, even with injury / recovery, etc. is becoming. This makes every training challenging for everyone and because of the enthusiasm of the trainers you are able to push your limit every descent in order to get better and better. As a result, I had a number of very nice and very good training sessions, which made me take another step to become a technically even better skier!
