While Sweden may not have the most mountains or the highest ones, it still boasts plenty of incredible splitboarding opportunities. Away from Kebnekaise, Abisko National Park is a popular place to head out on a hut-to-hut ski touring expedition. The mountains around the Laporrten valley, in which the national park sits, provide plenty of great opportunities for skinning up and boarding back down. Heading on an 8-day splitboarding trek from Abisko to Nikkaluokta is an especially popular way to see the country’s glaciers as well as getting the chance to experience the famed Northern Lights
