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.
Moondance is a custom built 57ft Koopmans, designed by Dick Koopmans and built at the Koopmans kasko’s warf in Sneek. Ideal for expeditions to Norway, Iceland and even further north. Unlike the previous Sailingtaxi, the ship has been designed with comfort as the first priority, followed by durability. This yacht offers comfortable berths for a total of 6 skippers, sufficient heating, a hot shower, a toilet, washing machine and much more. Interested in a viewing? Then please contact +31 6 4859 1921. We will gladly give you a tour!
“After 17,000 nautical miles, 200 guests and several documentaries on our previous sailing ship Whisper, I am more than ready for the new Sail to Ski Adventure in Norway. Our gained knowledge, experiences and our new expedition sailing ship Moondance will help us. I can’t wait to work with Epique Mountain Adventures to organise never-to-be-forgotten expeditions.”
See you in Norway!
“The possibilities with our new expedition sailing vessel Moondance are endless. Moondance is a unique Koopmans 57ft. This ship generates comfort, space and a good vibe on board. A partnership with Epique is great for everyone! I look forward to welcoming happy guests during our Sail to Ski Expeditions in Norway during the winter of 2022.”
Unforgettable, thanks!!Extraordinary experience to be in pristine nature while being part of a team that is doing everything to organize the trip in a way that the outcome is more than maximum. Beautiful hikes, weird birds, fabulous food and just a great atmosphere. And all of that while being in the Shetlands.
