Edward Bekker has emerged in recent decades as a true pioneer in the field of arctic ski trips. As an organization we are at home in Northern Norway, Swedish Lapland, Iceland, Spitsbergen and Greenland and have an excellent network of local partners and operators. The ski season starts up north from mid-March. Starting with Iceland, which is our southernmost Arctic destination. From mid-April it will be light enough in Northern Norway to make beautiful ski touring in the fjords. For Spitsbergen and Greenland you must be at least the end of April. The ski season extends to mid-May.
Given the long days in the spring, the later the journey, the less hurry. Especially in May it doesn't get dark anymore and skiing in the midnight sun is a great experience that makes skiing in the far North extra special. Our day trips usually last between 5 to 7 hours, whereby we climb 1000 to 1300 meters. But that is not a problem, because you ski from sea level so that, unlike, for example, ski touring in the Alps, you are not bothered by the altitude. These trips are open to experienced backcountry skiers with an adventurous, flexible attitude.

Ski & Sail Alta-Hammerfest Norway
Alta and the northernmost city in the world Hammerfest in the far north of Norway are about 100 kilometers apart. However, between the two places there are countless fjords and islands with beautiful, untouched ski touring mountains. It is rugged and arctic, there are hardly any settlements, but the snow is present until well into spring, all the way to the fjord.
Heliski Iceland with Arctic Heliskiing
Iceland, land of Fire and Ice. The island is situated on the edge of the Arctic Circle and is unique in the world. You will find smoldering volcanoes, bubbling pools, grand waterfalls and rugged glaciers. The most beautiful and highest ski mountains in the country are located on the Troll Peninsula up North. The ridges close to the deep fjords and about 90% of the mountains are "skiable", without many flat parts, rocks and vegetation. The descents are between 900 and 1,300 meters in height.
Toerski & Freeride Lyngen Alps Noord Noorwegen
FREERIDE & SKITOURING IN THE LYNGEN ALPS NORTH NORWAY
The most beautiful skitour and freeride area in Europe is located in the Norwegian Lyngen Alps, a (peninsular) group of islands with high steep peaks and deep valleys that flow into the fjord. It has lots of snow and often skiers mistakenly think that in Scandinavia there are only faint molehills and that ski touring should be done in the Alps. Nothing could be further from the truth: Norway is hip and trendy as a freeride and skitouring area! There are endless possibilities and you do not queue like on the Haute Route! Peaks such as Trolltinden, Stortinden, Tafeltinden in the heart of the Lyngen Alps do their name, they look a bit like the steep granite tops above Chamonix. Here you can also find a long tradition of alpine climbing. They are located in the far north of Norway, far above the Arctic Circle. Edward Bekker discovered the area in 1997 and has since then returned every year to enjoy the rugged nature and the beautiful snow with ski enthusiasts on wide ski skis. A dream trip for the true ski enthusiast!

This special Ski & Sail trip is only open to adventurous, experienced ski mountaineers. It is a true expedition to a remote and wild area. You navigate between the icebergs, have the opportunity to see polar bears, walruses, reindeer and pole foxes and sski over rugged glaciers above deep fjords. It's a once in a lifetime trip, an unforgettable journey high on the bucket list of many adventurers!
Adventure Skiing in Iceland, skitour & ride experience
Iceland, land of fire and ice. The island is situated at the edge of the Arctic Circle and is unique in the world. It's the land of smoldering volcanoes, geysers, bubbling pools, impressive waterfalls and magnificent glaciers. In the north of the country, on the Eyjafjörður Fjord - Iceland's longest Fjord lies Akureyri, often called the northern capital of the country. Our base is located at the west side of the fjord. Here, on the Troll Peninsula, we find beautiful ski touring peaks mainly between 900 and 1400 meters high.
Just like in Northern Norway and Swedish Lapland we enjoy the winter beauty with rugged mountains, frozen waterfalls and deep blue fjords. The area has guaranteed snow and a benefit is certainly that you do not need to acclimatise as you would need to do in the Alps.
