Ski and Sail Svalbard! Swipe➡️

Meet S/Y SkyDancer of Longyearbyen, Svalbard, the sailing ship we use for our expeditions! A 73 ft steel and alu schooner fully equipped for sailing in high latitude waters we have been partners with for many years. With her elegant and strong build it’s easy to see that she can handle the arctic in style and keep our guests comfortable. She is ice classed and ready to go anywhere.

We are proud to run our Ski and Sail programs with her and her strong crew!

The schooner rig and big engine gives her an impressive range, amble cruising speed and ability to travel unsupported distances. This allows us to take this ship to the farthest north part of Svalbard.

She is even bullet proof, sleeps 12 people and has all the facilities making a journey with her both comfortable and fun.

Skydancer is perfectly outfitted for skiers and has great heating and drying system. You are always warm and comfortable on this boat. Gear and clothes are always dry and the Captain and Chef is as good as it gets!

If you want to join us on adventures with her on Svalbard 1-10th of May or Greenland 2021, give us a call or send us an email. This year will be the 7th year we operate Ski and Sail expeditions on Svalbard. Experience that is rare to find.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Svalbard 1-10th of May 2020 - Greenland 2021

Ski and Sail Svalbard!

1-10th of May 2020 -
There is a few spots open for this trip!

This year will be our 7th year running Ski and Sail expeditions on Svalbard.

A unique experience and a once in a life time opportunity, giving you access to diverse and glaciated terrain with a lot of fun skiing.

Describing the mind blowing landscape of Svalbard is difficult.

To combine this landscape with ski touring, wildlife, a crew of fun strong Sailors and IFMGA guides on a 73ft steel schooner is as good as an arctic ski expedition gets.

The combination of our experience and impressive Vessel is something we are really proud to provide.

Svalbard is so wild and remote that it’s almost overwhelming. The characteristic of this area with its glaciers pouring into the ocean and it’s sedimentary rocks is unlike anywhere. Skiing here is fun!

1-10th of May
- double cabins,
-2 IFMGA guides,
-8-9 skiing days
-Great Chef
-Strong Captain

Email or call for inquiring more info. Link in bio.

Big thanks to all the participants and guides for another successful weekend with avalanche courses.

It was our third weekend running avalanche courses this year. This time we had 14 participants for The Level 2 Course and it’s really nice to see so many local faces. (A few of them here)

We hope everyone learned a lot and had a good time! #knowsnow

Denne helgen holder vi skredkurs for 14 Lofoten locals. De meldte seg på vårt skredkurs Nivå 1 for å lære mer om trygg ferdsel i fjellet og få en repetisjon av gammel kunnskap!

Skredkurs NIVÅ 1 skal sette deltagerne i stand til ta egne avgjørelser basert på skredvarsel, værmelding og observasjoner. På dette kurset går vi igjennom de vanligste skredproblemene og hvordan vi må forholde oss til de som skikjørere. Vi ser på terrenget og jobber med forskjellige ferdselsteknikker under varierende forhold.

Temaer vi gjennomgår på kurset er:
- Terrengvurdering og veivalg
- Skredvarsel
- Turplanlegging
- Faretegn
- Kameratredning

Seth og Sjur er godt kvalifiserte og erfarne instruktører med IFMGA/NORTIND sertifisering som gjør at man sikret å få mest mulig ut av kurset.

I går kveld gjorde vi en teoretisk gjennomgang av skredlære, utstyr og planlegging av tur for dagen etter.

I dag er vi ute og ser på skreterreng, ferdselsteknikker og faretegn. Med litt flaks blir det forhold for fin skikjøring også. Om 2 uker holder vi skredkurs Nivå 2.

Det er HELT ESSENSIELT å ta et skredkurs om man ønsker å bevege seg i vinterfjellet! Dette er en god investering for deg selv og av hensyn til dine turkamerater.

Husk å Les teori, tren på ferdighetene dine og følg med på værmeldingen. Og ikke minst: bruk Varsom eller aktuelle nettsider der du er.

We are beyond excited for another ski season on these magical islands!

There is some availability for guiding still, but the books are getting quite full. So don’t hesitate to send a request if your considering coming up to Lofoten this ski season. (Until May 10th)

We can of course also set you with the perfect accommodation at Lofoten Ski Lodge regardless if you want guiding or not.

This weekend we’ve got 14 participants signed up for an avalanche course at the lodge.

With that note we encourage everyone to refresh and practice their avalanche knowledge and rescue skills.

Meet Sjur Hauge, an active climber and skier for over 20 years. He is a full time employee in Northern Alpine Guides and an IFMGA certified Guide.

Sjur also has over 10 years of extensive training and courses from the Norwegian Military and part of it within rescue and survival in the mountains and Medic level 3.

He moved up to Lofoten 10 years ago to spend even more time on what he likes best; steep outdoor activities and he always travel with either skis, climbing shoes or axes and crampons. Over the years he's been climbing and skiing in Patagonia, Svalbard, Andes, Caucasus, US and the Alps several times. But he says nothing beats the combination of the magnificent mountains, oceans, and the nice people you meet on the Lofoten Islands.

He knows Lofoten inside out which makes him a great resource for everyone in our team. Sjur is a busy father and active community member in our village. When he sets his mind to do something he makes it happen and he does it style.

He is also an active member and a essential resource for the local Svolvær Alpine rescue team, and he always share his expertise and enthusiasm.

«Sjur is the Viking you did not want to meet in a battle a 1000 years ago.» Ian McIntoch

Meet Seth Hobby, a full time IFMGA mountain guide, a Lofoten local the last 10 years originally from the Pacific Northwest. He is one of the two funders and owners of Northern Alpine Guides. Seth is a persistent skier, alpinist and business owner who speaks fluent Norwegian. He grew up in the foothills of the North Cascades and chose guiding as a carrier already in 2001. He has many technical ascents in the Nepal, Alaska, Cascades, Alps, Norway and British Columbia under his belt. He has a solid background in all disciplines of climbing and has been guiding in a great variation of terrain on skis around the world. This coming season he will be leading our 7th season of our Ski and Sail program in Svalbard. Seth is a very dedicated, creative and hard working guy which has resulted in many successful projects within film & photo, and custom made trips for returning and new clients. He holds a bachelor degree in Natural Resource Management, is a great father and environmentalist who loves living in Lofoten. Most of our photos has ben taken by Seth while he is out working as a guide. Its easy to see his passion and talent for photography!

«Seth is American, but after living and working as a guide in Lofoten for 10 years he knows the terrain, weather and snow conditions here as well as a forth generation fisherman knows the sea, the currents and winter storms.» Torkel Karoliussen @ Northern Alpine Guides
