Vulkana ski and sail

A memory for life

From USD 0

On this boat trip, we have three days of skiing, and we get to choose where they'll be. Depending on weather, wind, snow, and how we plan our adventure, we might even get a small bonus trip on the departure day.

We want to showcase the best of what Lyngen has to offer and make the most of the opportunities the boat provides. Focusing on skiing and enjoying life on the boat during the journey.

When we're not skiing, we can enjoy the amenities on the boat such as a sauna, hot tub on deck and hammam. Whether one wants to have a cup of coffee with the captain while sailing towards the next mountain, stand on deck and enjoy the sea breeze and the view, or simply relax with new and old acquaintances in the relaxation area, the adventure on Vulkana will be a memory for life.

Highlights:

  • Experienced guides
  • We reach the best ski areas by boat
  • We hunt for the best snow and the most fantastic experiences
  • We can customize the trip based on snow conditions, weather, and wind
  • A custom-built boat with unique spa and wellness facilities

Guests are accommodated in comfortable cabins, preferably together with the people they are traveling with or with participants of the same gender.

To find the best snow and ensure excellent skiing experiences, the peaks for each day are determined by the guides and the crew of Vulkana in consultation with the guests. Our guides are experienced and focus on finding memorable descents with good snow. The trips are tailored to the skill level of the entire group. If there are more than six participants, there are two guides, and in that case, we can divide the groups based on skill level, acquaintances, and preferences for the day.

In addition to epic skiing experiences, delicious food, and the comfortable boat, the crew will always ensure that you are well taken care of throughout the trip. Vulkana also offers dedicated spa voyages, and we get to enjoy these facilities during our skiing adventures as well. We can relax in the sauna, hot tub on deck, Turkish hammam, or simply unwind in the relaxation area.

Day 2-4:Ski Adventure in the Lyngen Area

Since we are staying on the boat and have everything we need throughout the trip, we prefer not to create a "day-to-day program." We want to make the most of the flexibility the boat offers us and move according to snow conditions, weather, and wind. In addition to the Lyngen Alps, areas like Kvaløya, Kåfjord, Uløya, Ringvassøya, or other hidden gems could be natural locations to consider for our backcountry skiing adventures.
