The Arctic Odyssey
In the Arctic Elements portfolio From 2020, "The Arctic Odyssey".
The combination of skiing in the untouched mountain areas of the Lofoten peninsula accommodated on our expedition ship taking us in to the fjord landscape and heliskiing in the high alpine mountains of Sweden is probably among the most exotic and exclusive you will experience on skis.
During a full week you will experience both amazing Lofoten with our expedition ship including four days of ski touring. After the four days at sea our helicopters meets up at Narvik harbor and takes us up to our Lodge, Metro on the Swedish side. Three days of heliskiing awaits.
The expedition ship has been renovated and adapted for the last five years, specially designed for our trips with high comfort for our guests. The ship is 90ft and holds 10 guests, 2 guides, 1 masseur, 1 photographer and 5 crew members including gourmet chef. Well-appointed 2-bed sleeping cabins, massage room and several showers. The boat also have special designed drying rooms for both ski clothes and ski boots. On the deck you can enjoy both sauna and hot tub bath under the sky. The ship is also equipped with ski service so your equipment always will be in perfect condition. To be able to reach the mountains from the ship two zodiak boats are used and winched down from the boat. All for increased comfort and well-being for our guests.
