Private trip,

50 feet Bavaria yacht Havblikk available from April 26th – May 2nd. At this time she’s anchored in Tromsø, close by the Lyngen alps.
If you go for this option we’ll supply you with skipper and skiguide, fuel and food. Our skiguides prefer groups of up to six skier, sometimes seven, if they know each other already. As Havblikk has 10 beds in 5 cabins there could also be room for a chef to cook for you after the skiing’s done for the day. The price breakdown for a 7 days with 6 skiing days with Havblikk is like this:
NOK 213.000 For Havblikk with skipper, fuel, food, harbourtaxes and all other boatrelated costs
NOK 30.000 For Skiguide
NOK 25.000 For Chef (Optional)
An itineray for a trip like this could something similar to this, but as you have the boat, the skipper and guide all to yourselves it’s up to your group to decide!

Day 1: Ship o’hoi – we meet and cast off
Welcome aboard! We meet at the dock in Tromsø at 16:00, settle into the boat and get to know each other. Before we hoist sails, we familiarize ourselves with the boat and equipment, and go through safety routines. We leave Tromsøsundet and Grøtsundet already on the first evening on our way to the first anchorage. We prepare supper when we have cast off, but please eat dinner before attendance if possible.

Day 2: First ski tour!
After an early breakfast, we take the dinghy to land and the adventure’s first skitour! We are aiming for some of the peaks on our way north from Tromsø for this day. Where we have nice options both on Ringvassøya and Reinøya. Or perhaps Ullstinden at 1093 masl will be the first peak of the trip! After skiing, we sail towards Lyngen and anchor or moor in a suitable place for a new peak the next morning.

Day 3 – 4: Nord-Lenangen and the Lyngen peninsula
The northern tip of the Lyngen peninsula and the surrounding islands, is a great starting point for several of the good peaks here. Weather, conditions and our ambitions onboard determine which trips we choose these days. We will explore beautiful fjords and mountains around this area. If the skipper’s in a good mood, maybe she’ll drop you off in one fjord and pick you up in the next!

Day 5 – 6: Kågen, Arnøya or Vannøya
The islands around the Lyngen peninsula itself are just as spectacular. And here we find even less visited bays, fjords and mountains. These islands are understandably easiest to reach by boat, what we are here for at Ski & Sail!

Day 7: Last summit and return to the Paris of the North
Last day of skiing, where we find a suitable peak on our way towards Tromsø. We have good alternatives on Ringvassøya or Reinøya on the way into Grøtsundet. After a few good hours of skiing in the morning, we head for Tromsø. On our way to the harbor we pack our things, clean up and wash ourselves out of the boat. We dock and end the trip in Tromsø at 16.00pm latest.

Important info

Deposit and payment

You only pay a deposit (NOK 6000) upon registration, the remainder of the payment is due 60 days prior to departure.

Safety and risk onboard

We are all about people, and so we also take safety very seriously. On our trips we practice sail- and boat handling also for safety, and we spend time going through various situations that can arise at sea, how to handle them and how to avoid them.

Onboard a boat everyone must know what to do in critical situations and in the event of an emergency. Our philosophy is that partaking and participation builds safety. It is important for the safety of the whole boat that you are a participant onboard, not just a passenger.

Therefore all our trips are to be considered sailing courses in addition to being great  holidays and adventures: You are trained to make up the crew onboard and so we build a capable team onboard.

Feel free to contact us for a chat about safety and risk on our adventures.

Level of the trip

No sailing experience? No problem! Our sailing adventures welcome both novices and seasoned sailors for an inclusive and enjoyable experience. Whether you’re new to sailing or a salty sea dog, our trips cater to all levels.

We aim to transform beginners into sailors quickly while offering experienced participants greater responsibilities and challenges. Our mainland sailing journeys involve 44-50 feet boats navigating coastal and protected waters, occasionally crossing open stretches for excitement. Route adjustments based on weather and conditions ensure a safe and adaptable voyage.

Trips are not overly strenuous; with rotating positions, participants can balance sailing and relaxation. Active engagement minimizes seasickness, and if it occurs, it passes swiftly. Weather, however, is unpredictable, with the potential for stronger winds and various conditions in northern Norway and the Arctic, making each trip a true sailing adventure. Be prepared for calm winds and rough weather—embracing the elements for an unforgettable experience.

What we expect from you

Our trips require a little effort from you who are joining – everyone on board must be ready to contribute and to give of themselves also socially; the more you open up, share and interest yourself in the others onboard, the more enjoyable it gets. 

When you’re sailing with us you are invited to take part in the running of the ship and all that comes with it. You will be sailing, docking, navigating, looking out for whales and icebergs, but also making food, serving others, doing dishes and helping clean the boat during the trip, and contributing in other ways when needed. Onboard we are all in the same boat and when all help out, the ship is most happy. 

Our experience is that doing things together with others out in nature, and not least cooperating and doing activities with new people and different personalities than you might have around you normally, is what creates the best, most interesting and memorable moments and stories:)

Equipment and packing

As with all activities, there is plenty of special equipment and clothing for sailing. If you don’t have any of this, you will get very far with normal hiking/outdoor equipment. You do not need to buy a lot of new equipment to join our trips. Use what you have, borrow what you need from a friend, purchase used equipment, and if you have to invest in new equipment – buy quality items that will last! What you need is something waterproof and windproof on the outside, and layered warm clothing underneath.

Some jackets may not be waterproof “enough”, or might not perform too well in salt water, so you can consider a set of oilskin for the wettest days (available for rent or purchase onboard). A pair of higher rubber boots for disembarking from the dinghy is very good to have, as well as indoor shoes below deck. Out at sea and in the Arctic it can be cold even in summer, so bring both swimwear and plenty of warm clothes. Well before departure, we will send you a detailed recommended packing list.

PS: In a sailboat, you pack in a bag or sack, not in a rigid suitcase. 🙂

Food & cooking onboard

On our trips, you will be part of the crew onboard and get the chance to participate in all tasks for the operation of the boat. This includes cooking and preparing food – everyone take turns in the galley! Skippers and crew assist as much as they can along the way.

We have great menus with tasty, healthy and “boat-friendly” food, and for each trip we order provisions for all meals onboard. If you have allergies or preferences, let us know in the registration form and we will take that into account as best as we can. You are also most welcome to bring any special food or drink with you. Why not bring some specialities from your country or region for the boat to enjoy? 

During a weeklong trip we often sail by a good restaurant or two where we can have dinner on land. Some places we need to pre-book and we will then need to choose a menu before we arrive. More about all of this when you come onboard!

Life onboard & accommodation

Life on a sailboat is super social and fun, but it might feel a bit intimate at first. No worries though, that vibe usually fades after the first hour. Everyone chips in to run the boat, and we’re all part of the crew, which means quick bonding.

We’re keen to get to know you and hope you’ll connect with the rest of the crew. It takes some patience, generosity, and an open mind to thrive, but soon you’ll be focused on making new friends and enjoying raw nature experiences once sea life feels like home.

Sleeping arrangements in shared cabins with double or bunk beds can be a bit of a puzzle, but we’re pretty good at figuring it out. Let us know if you have preferences. You’re on your own for land accommodations before or after the trip.

The boat provides heating and good food, but fresh water isn’t always abundant. Water conservation means not showering every day, but when near freshwater sources, we make the most of it. But nothing beats a morning sea swim for that fresh feeling.
