Bespoke ski and sail trips to the Norwegian Arctic Circle.Join Tim Blakemore on Yacht Destiny for exploratory adventure skiing.

I've teamed up with Yacht Destiny to offer an exploratory ski and sai trip. The 6 day itinerary (flying into/out of Tromso) allows plenty of flexibility for 'looking around the next corner' and venues such as Kvaløya, Trømso and the Lyngen Alps are on the list. Like all my ski trips an element of self reliance, teamwork and a sense of humour is important. Sailing experience is not needed but a willingness to muck in is much appreciated.

The yacht itself is a 47' Van de Stadt with lifting keel. This is a genuine expedition yacht but not big - the trip runs on a 1:3 guiding ratio with Andrew and Janice as skippers. The trip is 'all found' which means guiding fees, yacht charter and all food on board is included (I can include a breakdown of the costs). I feel this trip offers a great opportunity to experience some adventure skiing in a great location. The added flexibility of a yacht gives us every chance to access untracked snow. The itinerary is designed so you only need to 'fly in and fly out' arriving and leaving by yacht (no time wasted in transfers or in Tromso).

Saturday afternoon embark, Saturdy morning disembark. Cost circa £2100 - £2460 per person based upon 4 guests for 6/7 days (plus flights to Tromso/Alta).

Please don't hesitate to get in contact for further information on this or any other ski adventure.
