Day two Wednesday
We set sail heading the fjords early in the morning, around 06:00. The coffee machine is ready while Tore, our metros and chef will prepare the breakfast. We arrive the first destination "Øye" about 5 hours later. You will meet your guide for the next days, we make plans together and go ski touring around 12:00 - 19:00. So, this is a warmup day and a shorter tour.
Day three - five
The next few days are quite similar. After a good breakfast the guide show up and bring you safely to various big mountains (1200 - 1600 verticals). The weather forecast and snow conditions will tell us where we can find the best snow.
When we dock by Sagafjord hotel there is a nice harbor where we can shower and there is also outdoor floating sauna. If the group agree we will do our best to make some fun activities in the evening. Someone might want to relax on the boat, which is also fine, but if you want we can do outdoor barbeque, visit a vineyard, visit local farmers and there are also many cozy guest house along the fjord. Notice, everyone has to pay for their own beer :)
Sunday is the last ski day. We sail back to Aalesund after we are finished skiing, around 18:00. Dinner is served around 19:00 on the fjord. We arrive in Aalesund around 23-24:00.
