Splitboarding Lofoten
Splitboarding Lofoten Islands, Norway

The Lofoten Islands are situated at 68 degrees north, within the Arctic Circle in Northern Norway. The islands’ main sources of income are fishing and summer tourism. The winter months are brief and characterized by darkness, but as spring arrives, the days gradually lengthen, providing an ideal environment for touring.
The Lofoten offers unique views and backcountry snowboarding descents that lead all the way to the beach. Unlike other areas, the Lofoten lacks any traditional ski resorts, making it a true splitboarding paradise. The mountains showcase a diverse range, featuring everything from steep direct lines to expansive open snowfields. This means that every splitboarder, regardless of their skill level, will find a descent that suits their expertise. After an intense day in the mountains, take in the breathtaking views from the beach or your cabin.

The Accommodation

Throughout our stay on the Lofoten Islands, we will be accommodated in beachfront cabins located in Kabelvag, close to the Lofoten capital, Svolvær. These cabins are designed to accommodate up to four individuals and are fully furnished with a kitchen, living room, bathroom, and sleeping rooms that include single and double beds. Come nightfall, you can enjoy the sunset either from the beach or by the warmth of the fireplace.

Is my snowboard level good enough for this trip?

Prior experience with splitboard tours and the ability to execute stable kick turns in various snow conditions are a must for this trip. The snow conditions on the Lofoten will vary between spring/powder and packed snow. Each day, we will embark on splitboard tours that cover vertical distances ranging from 600 to 1100 meters, with durations of 3 to 6 hours. It’s essential that you are capable of snowboarding on spring/powder terrain with slopes up to 40 degrees in steepness.
Certain mountain ridges may present icy conditions, requiring the use of crampons and an ice axe to safely ascend to the summit. Guidance on attaching and utilizing these climbing tools will be provided on the Lofoten Islands. Specific experience in using them is not mandatory, as instructions will be offered on-site.
