Spend your days exploring untouched terrain on the remote and beautiful island of Svalbard. Experience the breathtaking scenery and wildlife that draws travelers from around the globe, while skiing daily virtually untracked landscapes that remain the world’s best secret.
From the comfort of your wooden sail boat you can access some of Svalbard’s most remote mountains where the snow is exceptional and the crowds are non-existent. IFMGA guides will take you to the best ski zones where you can discover the unknown and ski lines that no-one else has touched before you. Encounter Artic wildlife as your tour out across the high Northern Latitudes and ski all the way to the ocean from the mountain peaks.
