Lyngen Alps, Norway

Norway

Ski & Sail | Lyngen Alps | Svalbard

The sailing yacht Firebird is a floating luxury ski chalet and the perfect base to explore the majestic Lyngen Alps or venture north to Svalbard - the most northern populated place in the world. There are no helicopters involved here just wind, skis, skins and a bit of muscle power to get you to the top.

With snow-covered peaks rising straight from the ocean, jaw-dropping scenery and wildlife there is something special about Arctic Norway. And with a highly capable and extremely comfortable ocean-going yacht at your disposal the possibilites for genuine exploration-style skiing are limitless.

The Norwegians call this type of experience, “Friluftsliv” which literally translates to “free air life”.....exploring and appreciating what nature has to offer.

This is luxury adventure at its finest - skiing and sailing deep Norwegian fjords and snow covered peaks from the luxury of a beautiful custom-built Oyster 885 sailing yacht.

S/Y Firebird

This custom-built Oyster 885 sailing yacht is a floating luxury chalet offering a spacious saloon with a 360°panoramic view of the amazing Arctic scenery. The large cockpit can be fully enclosed and is heated during winter so you can enjoy the sailing with your morning coffee without even taking off your slippers.

There are 4 well-appointed guest cabins on-board, each with its own individually controlled heating and lightning systems, en-suite bathroom and entertainment system.

The sail locker has been fitted with boot heaters and a ski rack to ensure your boots are always warm, dry and ready to go in the morning.

Sea to Summit

The Lyngen Alps in Norway offer some of the best wilderness ski-touring in the world. Heliskiing is not permitted in Norway so the only way of accessing the virgin snow is to strap skins to your skis and use a bit of muscle to get to the top. The rewards are beyond imagination - no sign of civilisation, untouched mountains plastered in powder snow and scenery that will blow you away as you descend from summit to shore.

Outstanding Terrain

The quality of snow and the variety of terrain in this region are truly awesome with endless opportunities for all abilities to explore anything from wide open spacious bowls to steep couloirs and Alaskan-looking spines.

Floating Luxury

The Sailing Yacht Firebird is a luxury sailing yacht with immaculate attention to detail throughout. It is complimented by genuine 5-star service delivered seamlessly and unobtrusively by a professional crew. Your personal on-board chef will spoil you with a full breakfast, lunch packs, après ski snacks and a 3-course dinner using local specialties coupled with carefully matched wines.

Magnificent Scenery

This part of the world is truly a photographer’s dream and if you embark on your adventure early enough in the season it is very likely that you will experience the Northern Lights.
