Experience breathtaking Fjord Skiing adventures.
Points North Charters offer Fjord ski tour charters and summer alpine hikes on their liveaboard boat, the Gåssten. Our trips start from Ålesund and incorporate the spectacular Hjorundfjord and Sunnmore Alps. Aboard the Gåssten you will have a very high level of comfort with restaurant standard food being served at all meals.
Our smaller landing craft affords you a high degree of flexibility and intimate access to the coastline and the surrounding islands, allowing you direct access to the mountains from the water – an experience that is completely different to that of a larger cruise liner.
Come and join us and our mountain guides for some of the most breathtaking ski mountaineering terrain anywhere on the planet, based from the comfort and safety of our boat.
All our ski mountaineering trips include a fully qualified UIAGM guide. We work closely with Norwegian Alpine Guides, Norgesguidene, who all have excellent local knowledge of the terrain and snow conditions and most importantly know where to find the powder. The crew of the Gåssten will work together with the guides to ensure you get the best possible trip and in the safest hands.
Trips with Points North Charters are, for the most part, short expeditions in serious mountain and sea environments – this is what makes us so unique. As such your safety is our priority. Whether you are joining us for a ski mountaineering trip or a summer alpine hike, a qualified guide will always be present to ensure your safety.
The Ski Routes
Typically our trips will start from Alesund (transfer from Alesund airport is included in our prices) and will incorporate the spectatular Sunnmore Alps. This area has been shaped by shifting glaciers carving out fjords and valleys over the centuries, leaving a spectacular area of peaks and summits.
