ROUTE

TYPICAL DAY

After the booking is completed, you travel to the agreed location in Norway. Together with your fellow adventurers for that week you will be picked up by a company van and taken to the sailing ship, the Moondance. The reception committee is formed by two crew members of Sailing Taxi and a qualified mountain guide who explains to the guests what the coming week will look like (safety, daily schedule, division of responsibilities etc.). You are assigned your bed and then the ropes are cast off. The rest of the day is spent cruising to the next day’s ski tour location and routine training on avalanche risk. The next day you will be taken from the anchorage to the shore by dinghy. Accompanied by the guide, you hike in a group of no more than 7 skiers to the summit. You will ski down to the most breathtaking locations, the dinghy will pick you up again and then you will enjoy the dinner that the crew has prepared that day. The last hours of the day are spent sailing to a new touring ski location, kayaking, having a drink or reading a book. Early to bed because tomorrow is another day like this.
