Tour Code: WSAS16
(6 days/5 nights): from £1903, excluding flights
Visit ski areas – with peaks that rise to over 1000m and plentiful snowfall – that can only be accessed from the sea, while living aboard a restored oak sailing ship on these unique adventures. Each day, the ship anchors in small bays and coves from where you will ski fresh tracks accompanied by an expert local guide. If conditions allow, there will also be the chance to cross the Arctic Circle to visit the island of Grímsey, Iceland’s most northerly settlement. On the way back, you will receive instruction from the crew and get to try your hand at sailing a 2-masted schooner.
The price includes accommodation on board, all meals and the use of wet weather sailing clothing. Hire of ski gear is available.
Departure dates for 2017 will be available shortly. Private charter of the ship and crew can be arranged for groups.
