EXPEDITIONS - NORWAY
SAIL & SKI MOONDANCE
Explore Norway the way it was meant to be, climb peaks you can only reach from the water and take untracked descents down to the water. This is ski touring at its best. After an amazing season in 2022, we are back in 2023! This time we will spend more time up North, covering Steigen, Senja & Lingen and Finnmark. From South to North and from February till May. With this format we will sail to the best snow (stastics) and have the best sun hours. We are happy to welcome you on Moondance again. You will find all necessary information below. Please do not hesistate to ask mail or call us with questions.

Every day we make one or two ascents and descents. At the end of the afternoon
we usually make a long descent back towards the fjord and the Moondance. Before
dinner we set sail again and anchor in sight of tomorrows tour. On board you are
very well looked after by the crew. Every morning a hearty breakfast awaits us and
we will be able to prepare a take away lunch. When we return to the ship at the
end of the afternoon, we gladly enjoy our well deserved Moondance beer and be
surprised by the catch of the day!

This ship generates comfort, space and a good vibe on board. I look forward to welcoming happy guests during our sail to ski expeditions in Norway during the winter of 2023.”
