Ski and sail Harstad
February – April
Ski and sail Harstad
Dive into the viking culture while you explore our unknown paradise in the arctic. Our skilled and locally known ski guides will take you “off the beaten track” in Grytøya’s mountains. Learn how to sail from our experienced skipper while you sail to the next summit destination, and set your fresh tracks in new powder snow as you whiz down the mountainsides. End the days with a wonderful northern lights experience, and enjoy local cuisine on board our comfortable sailboat «Bifrost». The wind decides where we go, and the possibilities are many as our base is located between popular Senja, Lofoten and Vesterålen.
“The most AMAZING adventure of our lives! Sailing and skiing with Halvard and Christian as our guide was a life-changing adventure… We felt safe the entire time and got to experience a ski sail trip that I never dreamed of…
Oh and the Northern Lights firing up every night was a huge bonus! We will be back for sure!” – Ryan Harris, Canada
