The Lofoten are one of my favorite locations…
Freeriding with an ocean view in a extraordinary beautiful scenery of islands with dramatic mountains, open sea, sheltered bays, beaches and untouched lands.
The Lofoten Islands, 68 degrees north, inside the Artic circle in North Norway. The main income for these islands comes out the fishery and the summer tourism. The winter months are short and dark. When finally spring arrives, when the Alps are getting green, days in the Lofoten are getting longer which is ideal for touring.
After touring we have time for sightseeing, surfing, fishing, sauna, bouldering and with a bit of luck we see the Northen lights, elks or sea eagles. From April there is planty of daylight (sunset 10pm).
Splitboarding on the Lofoten is getting more and more famous by splitboarders and tour skiers. Most mountain peaks except for few have an average of 750 vertical meters, there are easy and difficult descents, this makes it interesting for touring and for all levels. Join us on splitboard/ tourski to hike and ride in one of the most magnificent places on earth.
We will meet at the airport of Harstad/Narvik (EVE) and from there we drive at the latest at 6 pm with rental cars to the holy grail of skitouring / splitboarding. In total there will be 6 guided days on different locations, reached by car.
- Day 1: Arriving at Harstad/Narvik airport, Evenes and driving to the accommodation Nearby Svolvear.
- Day 2 till day 7: Splitboard tour Torskmannen, Stortind, Rundfjellet, Store Kvittind, Pilan/Sautind and Varden *
- Day 8: Driving back to the airport
The exact order and mountains we hike will depend on weather and snow conditions.
During down days (very bad ski touring weather) we do an alternative program, or a small tour. So far there have been 2 real down days of 36 days I’ve been guiding in Norway.
This trip is for intermediate and advanced riders.
You should have some experience in tourski or splitboarding and be able to make a kick turn. The snow conditions on the Lofoten will vary between springsnow, powder and packed snow. Daily we will make splitboard tours in between 500 and 1100 vertical meters, and this will be 3 to 6 hours a day.
During our stay on the Lofoten islands we will stay in small cabins in Kabelvag next to the capital of the lofoten Svolvear. From the livingroom you have a wonderfull view over a fjord and the mountains. The cabins are up to 4 persons, are full equipped with a kitchen, living room, sleeping rooms with single beds and a bathroom. At night you can enjoy the sunset from the beach or fireplace.
