How to Get There
Nuuk, Barrow, Tromso, Isafjordur, and Murmansk are a few airports - mostly regional - that allow access to the Arctic. While not all within the Arctic Circle, they provide access within their respective countries to reach it. Boats and ferries are used often in the Arctic region to gain access to the most difficult areas of the territory
The Arctic is a region comprised of the northern parts of the United States, Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia. A symbol of icy and snowy conditions in the most extreme north of the globe, this area has a treasure trove of spectacular splitboarding locations. The snow quality is kept extremely high thanks to the temperature and climate, though it can prove challenging and even dangerous. A guide is a vital part of a successful program in the Arctic for the safety and satisfaction of an expedition. The Arctic includes the North Pole, which is an exciting objective for extreme skiers and snowboarders. Proper planning and experience is necessary for these trips, which are commonly undertaken for weeks at a time
