A collection of photos from our May 2018 Svalbard Ski and Sail trip

Back country ski touring from the comfort of a sailing boat, the s/v Noorderlicht

There’s no better way to travel around the arctic fjords of Svalbard than in a sailing boat. And there’s no better way to explore the countless glaciated peaks than by skis. Back country ski touring at its finest: wake up every morning in a new place, transported while you sleep to an ice-fringed fjord, seracs plunging into the salt ocean. After breakfast it’s on to the Zodiac and a quick trip to the shore where we pull off rubber boots and get into our ski touring gear for a day of exploration.

Here is a set of photos from our May 2018 trip. You can also check out our Ski touring in Svalbard trip report.

But don’t delay long, book your trip now. There are only 5 spots remaining on Sawback’s Svalbard Ski and Sail 2019! (as of October 12).
