Expedition profile

Sail with us on the rustic Comrades "also called the floating alpine hut" to the best ski touring destinations that this breathtaking landscape of snow-covered mountains and fjords has to offer.

The Lyngen Alps are actually no longer an insider tip, but with our "freeride ship" we can still find uncomfortable powder runs away from the classic ski tours.

The willingness for the extraordinary is very important to our motivated, small team, which is why we are even ready to organize a midnight ski tour, provided the weather allows.

Another advantage is that we are not dependent on a strict tour plan for our mini cruise and can therefore always offer the best possible. Since we have 24 hours of daylight at this time of the year, we can also start a ski tour in the afternoon, for example if a cold front has passed through beforehand, which brought us fresh POWDER.

So the right timing is essential to get a MEGA touring event every day and this flexibility will make the ski touring expedition a huge success that you will never forget for a lifetime ;-))

Itinerary

DAY 1:

Flight with a stopover in Oslo.

Important:

  • Ski boots / snowboard boots + ski touring clothing always belong in hand luggage, as it is almost impossible to get the right ski boot in the event of a pastry delay or a pastry loss from the respective airline.
  • Because of the customs procedure outside the EU, each participant MUST check out the pastries at Oslo Airport and check them in again for the onward flight.

Onward flight to Tromsø - private transfer from the airport to the port - material check - if someone has forgotten something, they can get the necessary equipment at a sports store in Tromsø at the last minute - embarkation with boat briefing

And finally it's time to cast off, our adventure begins and the Comrades takes us to our first ski touring spot.

DAY 2 - 7:

Taking into account the weather, avalanches and swell reports, the daily goals are discussed with the expedition crew. The captain and mountain guide determine the daily program.

This includes:

  • The boat trip to the ski touring destination - shuttle service with the zodiac or dinghy to the beach
  • A ski tour out and return or a mountain range crossing
  • Chill on the boat with sauna and hot tub
  • Fishing & Sea Kayaking

Day 8:

In the mornings we arrive at the port of Tromsø for the 1st appointment variant and at the port of Alta for the 2nd appointment variant.

Goodbye in the afternoon and flight home.
