Ski-tour the Lyngen Alps onboard the luxury FIREBIRD yacht

Discover the immense off-piste potential of Northern Norway while sailing between anchorages aboard FIREBIRD. 

Words by Pelorus

The indomitable landscape of Northern Norway and its off-piste potential are often described in hushed tones among skiers, and the Lyngen Alps are its powder-piled epicenter.

The profound sense of peace you have while skiing the slopes, the base of the mountains rooted in the frigid North Sea, is heightened by the enforced absence of helicopters and snowmobiles.

High in the Arctic Circle, ensuring top quality off-piste adventure until, at the earliest, mid-May, the Lyngens are best reached by a private yacht with dimensions better suited to access this kind of remote destination. The smaller FIREBIRD is the perfect example of a vessel that, while also being more affordable, is at the forefront of this new wave of exploration.

You’ll hop between anchorages as you pursue new thrills and untouched powder. Watch for whales breaching, the Aurora Borealis shimmering overhead, and sit down to superb seasonal meals within the sumptuous surrounds of the Oyster 855. With space for six and ski-touring routes catering to all fitness and skill levels, FIREBIRD is a week of ideally balanced adventure and luxury.
