In coöperation with very experienced mountain guides we will organize some ski & sailing trips on Jonathan IV to the Lyngen Alps near Tromsö. Aim of these trips is to sail to one of the fjords and go on mountain trips with 2 experienced guides. You will be off for the day and return to the boat late afternoon or evening. The there will be time for diner and after that, or during the night the boat will be sailed by its crew to a new location. So the next day you will start in a different area. And with some luck, without any other ski tracks around.
The Lyngen Alps is a mountain range in northeastern Troms, North Norway, east of Tromsø, mostly in the municipalities of Lyngen and Balsfjord. The mountains follow the western shore of the Lyngen Fjord in a north-south direction. The length of the range is at least 90 km (depending on definition, there are mountains all the way south to the border with Sweden), and the width is 15–20 km. The mountains dominate the Lyngen Peninsula, which is bordered by the Lyngen Fjord) to the east, and Ullsfjorden to the west.
The mountains are of alpine character, popular among extreme skiers. The highest summit is Jiekkevarre, 1833 m, the highest in Troms; Store Lenangstind is also a prominent mountain. There are several glaciers in the mountains. Lyngen Alps are sufficiently high as to give rain shadow in the interior lowland areas east of the mountains.
