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.
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.
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.
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.
