We meet at the harbor in Tromsø at 7:00 PM. After settling into our accommodations, we set course for tomorrow's destination. We get to know the boat and each other before enjoying a nice dinner together.
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.
