About Sunnmore alps in Hjørundfjord

Our ski and sail adventure brings you to the famous Sunnmore Alps. The alps and surrounding areas have been shaped by shifting glaciers over the centuries making for spectacular peaks, deep valleys and amazing fjords.

Ski and sail Sunnmore alps is a trip for those of you who like the idea of powder skiing and ski touring in the untouched mountains in Hjørundfjord at the west coast of Norway.

Hjørundfjord is one of the most distinctive and magnificent fjords of Norway. Among the rugged, wildest and most beautiful mountain areas in western Norway the fjord creates a unique scenery for our sail to ski adventures. The view with blue steep fjord and white mountains with powder snow will guaranteed make memories for life!

About groups & booking

First note! About our concept "ski and sail" We mostly use the motor because of time schedule but we host the sail when we have time and wind conditions to sail. Norway at winter time have fast changing wind conditions in the fjords surrounded by high mountains.

Second note! All explorers must help out with some "work" onboard, like prepare breakfast / dinner and hoist the mainsail. Westland is not a cruise ship but more likely an expedition boat. It is important that every explorer has the right expectations and understands our concept correctly.

Third note! We have now decided to open for single bookings. Meaning you can travel alone and meet others who love ski touring the same way you do!

In the evenings

Vi bestreber oss alltid på å skape god stemning og spennende aktiviteter for våre gjester. Etter endt ski kjøring på dagen retter vi søkelys på lokal, kortreist mat og drikke. Vi lager alle måltid om bord i seilskøyta Westland, men om gjestene ønsker det kan vi finne på morsomme ting på ettermiddag og kveld.

  • Besøk på Haula vingård. Det stemmer, det finnes faktisk en vingård i kort avstand.
  • Besøk på den etter hvert velkjente Christian Gaard bygdetun.
  • Besøk på Rekkedal gjestehus som er et stort gårdstun med mange koselige stover og ulike gjestebord.
  • Vi kan også være med i fjøset på sau lambing.
  • Når vi fortøyer ved Sagafjord hotell har vi tilgang til fasiliteter som dusj, vaskemaskin, badstu med mer.

Denne sesongen er litt spesiell og vi vil selvsagt følge Covid-19 retningslinjene fra myndighetene. Derfor har vi laget markedets beste kansellering avtale der en kan avbestille og få tilbake pengene helt inntil 7 dager før avreise.

When designing your ski and sail trip we focus on safety, quality snow, terrain, and ski culture. Experience level on this trip is medium.

As organizers we try to keep the level as equal as we can, so that we can choose mountains according to the level of the group. If you are in doubt this is the right trip for you, you are welcome to contact us at any time - even you are beginner or experienced.
