Ski Tour to the polar bear’s Land
Welcome to five days of Alpine skiing adventures aboard the wooden schooner Linden. When the Arctic spring blooms, we set sail for untouched snow, midnight sun skiing, and unique ski touring.
In May Svalbard skiing conditions are at its best and we set sail for snow-capped mountains, searching for the perfect snow. Up to 1000-meter-tall mountains seem to rise straight out of the sea, giving us a stunning Alpine scenery to play in. This is skiing without boundaries in the untouched snow, where the tracks you come across are not from other skiers but rather from Svalbard’s wildlife.
The days are long, and we may run one to three ski excursions a day. After a solid breakfast, we go ashore and start skiing straight from the beach. We are ski touring 6-700 meter tall peaks amongst surging glaciers plummeting down and into the ocean, this is Svalbard where more than 60% of the ground is covered by ice.
On most days we choose to pack warm lunch and spend the whole day outdoors in the Arctic wilderness to get the most out of extraordinary conditions and sites. On other days we may have lunch on board when we move to new peaks with virgin snow. We enjoy sauna, After Ski drinks and a three course dinner on Linden in stunning and cozy surroundings!
