Published by Editorial Team on 29th December 2015

This is probably one of the most extreme sailing holidays in our yacht charter offer. Located half way between Norway’s mainland and the arctic circle, Svalbard or as previously known by its Dutch name Spitsbergen, are influenced by dry weather systems coming from the East. Covered with glaciers, most of these are stable and accessible for skiing during springtime when you can climb summits with amazing views and  the freedom of the wilderness.  During your yacht charter vacation, you would mainly ski on the glaciers that are accessible, usually up to 1000m.  All of these offer a variety of possibilities and different degrees of challenges so you will always find a summit that fits your personal ambitions and experience level. The on board ski-guide will plan different challenges on a daily basis based on groups dynamics and experience. With around 300 polar bears on Svalbard you will also be safely guided around their natural habitat all in order to let you experience the sail and ski holiday at its best, yet reduce any extensive risk of encountering one of the bears, other than watching them safely from a distance.

There are many aspects of this unique yacht charter holiday that are carefully considered and food is certainly one of the most important feel good factors.
During the trip, the team on board will serve high quality meals based on the best available supplies.  A ski and sail yacht charter holiday in Svalbard includes many aspects of travel, safety and new experiences yet the following is forming main part of this:

  • Individual- or group tours are welcomed
  • Your personal, comfortable berth
    in 2 berth cabin is normally offered, single cabins available on request too
