This adventure in far off places and hidden terrain, by sailing boat, is undoubtedly marked by secrecy and quietness. A pure and excellent atmosphere to explore and reflect. Our sail to ski voyage will vary from week to week. Depending on the best snow conditions and weather forecasts.


After Steigen we head straight to Senja. The contrast of the calm ocean with rugged peaks rising straight out of the sea makes this a unique setting for a sail to ski trip. The mountains reach up to 1,000 meters high and offer a varied terrain, from steep couloirs to meadow open bowls. March, when winter turns into spring, is the best time to be in Senja. One moment fresh snow is coming down and before you know it the sun is out again.


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!
