Ski & sail Svalbard glaciers - 8 days
Join us for a week of randonnée skiing between fjords & mountains, and reach the legendary summits of Svalbard by sailboat! The Arctic is a little paradise for many forms of ski: gentle glaciers, large valleys among mountains, sharp peaks and long corridors for the most demanding skiers!
We use a high comfort strong steel sailboat build for extreme conditions in Polar regions. Perfect for groups of 8-10 people (12 bunks). Skiers, scientists, photographers, family groups, friends, etc. Five cabins, all with private facilities. The yacht is perfect for all kinds of expeditions around the archipelago.
Our sailboat brings you everyday from fjords to glaciers, at the start of a new itinerary, through the most beautiful landscapes. Thanks to the boat we can drop off and pick-up the skiers in many places, and many itineraries are possible for all levels: loops, circuits, fjord-crossings... We can pick you up almost everywhere, and you don't need to ski down the same way you skied up.
We have experienced many itineraries, but there are still thousands to explore! The Arctic is also the territory of the famous polar bears, blue whales, belugas, reindeers, walruses, seals... A once-in a lifetime experience!
