With start and finish in Tromsø the itinerary is created as we go.

The trip itinerary will be created along the way! The advantage of a floating home is the flexibility when it comes to finding the best snow.

The ship

R/V Kinfish has an interesting history as a research vessel and is now converted into a perfect base for an unforgettable skiing adventure. The vessel has space for 12 guests on board and you stay comfortably in 2-bed cabins with en-suite bathrooms. The ship’s common areas have a pleasant atmosphere where you can socialize and relax while the crew drives to the next mountain, and there are also good facilities for storing and drying equipment. The ship’s own chef prepares delicious meals for hungry skiers and the bar stays open when needed. When the sun is shining, the ship’s deck has nice areas to enjoy a cold beer after a long day in the mountains. If you are interested in navigation and maneuvering the ship, the Captain and the crew can give you an introduction and if you are lucky, you may even get to steer the ship.

A floating home – endless possibilities

R/V Kinfish can cover large areas and has the ability to move at night. This means that you can ski in one mountain area one day, get onboard, have a shower, enjoy the evening and wake up the next morning to new mountains and new opportunities. If it is good conditions in one place, we can decide to stay there several nights to explore the area. The guides and the crew are flexible and focus on finding the best possible route according to the weather and snow conditions and last but not least the level and wishes of the group! The ship has two rib boats which are used for disembarking and the crew can drop and pick us up wherever and whenever we want. There are endless possibilities in terms of routes and descents as we can be dropped off at one place and picked up at another.

Presentations onboard

On board R/V Kinfish there are good facilities for presentations. Our guides are happy to share their knowledge and if you wish, there are good chances to learn about avalanches or other interesting topics during your stay on board. If you have any specific wishes let us know and we will arrange it in best possible way.
