Sailing Route

Arctic Haute Route

The Arctic Haute Route runs along the Atlantic coast between Lofoten and Tromsø, dropping anchor at the best islands for summit tours in Northern Norway. Sailing aboard the magnificent M/S Quest expedition ship that operated in Greenland and Svalbard in the past.

We sail to small places that larger boats can't access. Several of the destinations we visit have either no or limited accommodation or skiing infrastructure, which means we are alone in the mountains and make the first tracks.

Arrival day Lofoten

Day 1

Welcome to the most beautiful island kingdom in the world, Lofoten! M/S Quest is ready to explore the coast of Northern Norway starting from Svolvær, the capital of Lofoten. In this picturesque fishing village there are many historical and cultural places to visit. If you only have a few hours before departure we recommend a walk along the quay and lunch with the splendid views from the jetty. If you want to experience more of Lofoten, tours and excursions can be arranged in advance.

MS Quest is docked at the Brekken pier next to Magic Ice and Vestfjord hotel, a few hundred meters south of the Hurtigrute quay. Check in from 16:00 and departure at 18:00. From Svolvær we are heading north, taking a leisurely sail into the Austnesfjord, to the heart of all classic routes in Lofoten where we anchor up for the night. Dinner from Arctic Adventure Cuisine is served at 19:00 and information - and guide meeting begins at 21:00. Get a good night's sleep before tomorrow's ski touring adventures!

Lofoten

Day 2

First day of skiing! Breakfast is served from 06:30. In Lofoten and Austnesfjorden we use tenders to ferry guests to the base of various mountains. Alternative route options include Kvittind, Sauetind, Pilan, Torskmannen or other suitable mountains in the area. There are many possibilities and the days weather, conditions and group ability determine the chosen route.

The first day we plan trips with a difficulty level 3-4 on our scale up to 5. The ski touring hikes take 4-5 hours and are approx. 5-700 vertical metres in elevation. For those who want longer hikes and a faster pace, we can organise this. Independent excursions such as kayaking, fishing, sea eagle safaris, "vær-vandring" in Henningsvær or gallery visits to Lofotens Hus gallery og Kaviar Factory gallery can be arranged.

After a long day you can test the temperature in the fjord with a quick dip, or go straight to apres-ski and enjoy the great social atmosphere on board before dinner at 19:00. At 16:00 we sail from Lofoten setting a course north towards Andørja, dropping anchor before midnight. Ready for a new day of skiing!

Andørja

Day 3

We anchor in a fantastic fjord, observing the mountains we will climb later. Take the first coffee of the day on the deck and enjoy the view! Breakfast starts from 06:30. This is the day we'll explore the mountains of Andørja and Rolla. Andørja is Northern Europe's most mountainous island with more than ten peaks over 1000 metres, giving a wide array of ski touring possibilities.

We'll arrange trips with a difficulty level of 3-4 on our scale up to 5. The tours take 4-5 hours, and are approx. 6-700 vertical metres in elevation. If anyone in the group wants a longer hike, we suggest that one or more groups walk for 5+ hours, up to approx. 8-900 metres altitude. This gives a combined hike up two or more mountain peaks, with a difficulty level of 4 on our scale up to 5.

After the tour we return to our floating lodge and enjoy apres-ski with a local snack before dinner at 19:00.

During the afternoon we set sail to the north and, if we are lucky, get to experience the northern Lights. We drop anchor off Kvaløya just before midnight.

Kvaløya

Day 4

Your final day starts in spectacular fashion with a ski tour on Kvaløya. The guides organise tours that are right for you based on the day's weather and conditions. We take tenders to the shore, and immediately begin the summit treks from the shoreline.

We'll arrange trips with a difficulty level of 3-4 on our scale up to 5. The trips take approx. 3- 4 hours, and are approx. 700 vertical metres in height.

You'll check out from the ship in the morning before we land ashore, leaving the luggage that will be transported straight to the airport. After the tours guests are taken directly to the airport, arriving at 15:00. The luggage shipped earlier will be made available.

If you are tired and a little achy it is possible to explore Tromsø, go dog sledding or take in other sights in the surrounding area. If you have the energy to stay with us for a few extra days of adventure and treks, we'll arrange this in the area around Tromsø or Lyngen.

DAYS YOU WILL REMEMBER

Many of our guests return to join us again. We hope that a tour with us creates moments and days you'll remember for a lifetime. You'll always be welcome aboard and welcome back!

The ship M/S Quest

A compact and comfortable expedition ship

All cabins are exterior with sea views and have private bathroom facilities with a shower / toilet. – Norwegian Adventure Company

Life onboard

Social, after-ski and plenty of 'hygge'

Imagine how incredible it is to sail into the fjords and to lie at anchor surrounded by the landscape of the next day's tour. Get up at sunrise and enjoy the first coffee out on the deck. Watch a couple of small fishing boats slowly pass by on their way to the fishing grounds, prepare for the weather and be on your way. In every aspect the Arctic Haute Route is a very unique form of Arctic alpine holiday in the north.​​

Arctic Haute Route – Norwegian Adventure Company

Being on an Arctic Haute Route voyage is much more than a raw nature experience with amazing ski-touring. The voyage along the Norwegian coast, gives you the chance to see some of the most beautiful places in the north. In addition, there is a great social environment and plenty of ‘hygge’ (playful happiness) where you can share skiing adventures, fun experiences and your "passion" for an active lifestyle with other like-minded people.

On a small, intimate ship you quickly get to know the others in the group, and after a day or two we are one big happy family! The Norwegian Adventure Company team are always available for any questions you may have along the way, and the ship's crew are attentive and helpful.

You’re in safe hands with our certified guides who are knowledgeable local area experts and you’ll certainly learn some new tricks. Every afternoon we serve local snacks from the region for après-ski, followed by dinner and local dining experiences from Arctic Adventure Cuisine.

During afternoons and evenings, light snow falls and sunsets are best experienced with others on the deck, where you feel the wind, weather and the sheer joy of being on tour.

Level of difficulty

How difficult are the summit ski tours?

The most common questions we get asked is how tiring and long our summit ski tours are and how steep the descents are. This is not easy to answer as for each individual there is a different experience of what is deemed to be simple or demanding. To try to give guidance we have graded our tours on a scale from 1 to 5.​

2 Up to 500 metres altitude Summit trip for those with normal fitness. You must have ski-touring gear, avalanche gear and a hiking bag.
3 Up to 700 metres altitude A more strenuous summit trip, for those in normal to good condition. You must have ski-touring gear, avalanche gear and a hiking bag.
4 Up to 1000 metres altitude It is required that you are in good shape and that you regularly take long hikes. You must have ski-touring gear, avalanche gear and a hiking bag.
5 More than 1000 metres altitude It is required that you are in very good condition and that you are used to walking several days on hilly terrain. You must have ski-touring gear, avalanche gear and a hiking bag.

What to pack for the tour

Bring mountain gear and clothing for three days of trips, and casual outfits for travel, dinner and social occasions. The atmosphere on board is relaxed and the cabins are small, so make a capsule collection and leave your fancy clothes at home!

Arctic Adventure Cuisine

A fantastic experience of the North - also on the plate!

Gutsy, honest, uncomplicated and truly North Norwegian.

As an adventure company, we want you to experience some of the best world-class local produce that Northern Norway has to offer.

Based on this, we have developed the Arctic Adventure Cuisine dining experience in collaboration with Bocuse d 'Or chef Gunnar Hvarnes. In the menu we have specialties from more than 30 small and large local producers from the areas between Lofoten, Tromsø. and Finnmark.

The special thing about the Arctic climate is that it’s very cold, so everything grows slower. It gives the food a more distinct taste.
Fredrik Lundgren, Chef on Arctic Haute Route

New Nordic style

Arctic Adventure Cuisine showcases some of the really great ingredients the region has to offer - from the deep fjords to the mountains and farms. Through meals served on the Arctic Haute Route, we will convey some of the fascinating, Northern Norwegian culture and traditions, but presented in a New-Nordic style.

The menu is developed by one of Norway's foremost culinary experts, Gunnar Hvarnes, and prepared by some of the country's most talented young chefs. In creating this we hope you will have a wonderful experience of the north - also on the plate!

Norwegian Adventure Company

Safety

Some of our guests have concerns about security and safety factors; avalanche risk, danger in steep terrain, professionalism of the guides, general risk assessment of the trips and whether they can expect to be seasick. Below you will find information about these aspects of the trip.

Safety first. Always.

Our guides on board are certified, with a great deal of experience. They are all professionals who guide hundreds of tours throughout the year, and have mastered the art in tailoring tours to suit different levels; from beginners to high level skiers.

The safety of our guests on tour is paramount. We focus on the joy of adventuring safely. Our goal is for you to have a wonderful ski-tour experience, with magnificent views and spectacular skiing from mountain to shoreline.

Mountains and routes are always chosen based on the current weather, snow and wind conditions, along with the guests' skiing ability and physical fitness level.

Our guides

Our certified guides are highly qualified professionals with extensive knowledge of the mountain ranges that surround the coast of Northern Norway. All guides are mountain experts; skiing, climbing, glacier walking and handling of equipment. They are safety and avalanche trained according to international standards for mountain guides.

The guides are keen to share their knowledge and expertise about snow conditions, mountains and routes with the guests along the way, and are happy to discuss their evaluations. With certified guides controlling the tour risk assessment, it will be easier for our guests to enjoy views, scenery and free riding in the North.

Sea sickness

If you have concerns about being seasick, we can reassure you that we sail close to land and rarely in open sea areas for most of the voyage. In our experience guest seasickness has been limited to being very minimal, if at all. If any of our guests should still experience discomfort, we always have sea sickness tablets available on board.

Tours for different ability levels

Our certified guides facilitate tours for all levels of ability - from beginner and advanced to highly skilled summit tour enthusiasts. Our guides conduct meetings every night, going through maps, snow conditions and possible mountain options for the next day's tours with guests.
