Splitboarding Lofoten
Splitboarding Lofoten Islands, Norway

The Lofoten Island is 68 degrees north, inside the Arctic circle in North Norway. The primary income for these islands comes from fishery and summer tourism. The winter months are short and dark, when spring arrives the days are getting longer, which is ideal for touring.
The Lofoten offers one-of-a-kind views and backcountry snowboarding descends to the beach. The Lofoten does not have any ski resort, which makes the area a true splitboarding destination. The mountains are variable from steep direct lines to wide open snowfields. Every splitboarder will find a decent of his splitboarding level. After a full day in the mountains, enjoy the fjord views from the beach or cabin.

The cabins are up to 4 persons and are fully equipped with a kitchen, living room, bathroom and sleeping rooms with single and double beds.

Is my snowboard level good enough for this trip?

You should have done some splitboard tours and be able to make a stable kick turn in different snow conditions. The snow conditions on the Lofoten will vary between spring/powder and packed snow. Daily we will make splitboard tours in between 600 and 1100 vertical meters, and this will be 3 to 6 hours a day. You should be able to ride spring/powder snow up to 40 degrees of steepness.

Some of the mountain ridges can be icy, crampons and an ice axe are needed to reach the peak safely. How to attach and use these climbing materials will be explained on the Lofoten, you do not need any specific experience on how to use them. See here for more information about this trip.
