Our ski and sail trips take place from middle of February till late of May in the Western part of the county of Finnmark. Each week starts and ends in the small village of Øksfjord. Flights to/from Alta.
The areas are situated some 100 km’s + inside the Artic circle.
On board The Goxsheim, our “base camp” sailing ship, we will drop anchor in sheltered bays, natural harbors or dock in small fishing settlements, and access the mountain for the day either directly from the ship’s deck - or a little bit more challenging: By using the dinghy for drop off on the shore. After 5-7 hours you'll be back, and you'll be served the ship’s Soup of the day with white bread. Something to look forward to!
Most of the weeks are booked by guides that charter the ship to bring their own groups. In case you represent a group without a guide, we can help you to get in touch with a qualified guide. If so, to book with us, you must have taken part in down hill off piste skiing before (intermediate level) and your physical condition has to be so that you can manage skinning for 3-5 hours and then going downhill. You'll have to arrange with equipment (randonee or telemark skis, poles, skins, avalanche transceiver etc) yourself.
The duration of a Sail and Ski trip is 8 days/7 nights (Friday-Friday).
Fully booked. Nevertheless: One guide has one place available on the May 19th-26th week. Please get in touch for more info!
