Description

Norway is a fantastic country that offers some of the best places for every type of winter sport. And the Lyngen Alps especially, are surrounded by mesmerizing sceneries, making them the ideal place for a splitboarding trip. Join me on this splitboarding tour across this majestic land.

Located in northern Norway, in the Lyngen peninsula, the Lyngen alps are a stunning mountain range with endless possibilities for a splitboarding program. These magnificent and jagged peaks are brimming with dazzling glaciers and deep valleys, worth exploring.

The itinerary of this program is open. Hence, giving you the opportunity to explore this winter wonderland for as many days as you wish. So depending on your skill level, and your requests, we can spend one or multiple days in search of the most thrilling descents and breathtaking views.

One thing is for sure, the Lyngen Alps have options for everyone! Here you can find peaks that rise more than 1,900 meters above sea level, giving you the chance to snowboard down back to the shoreline. Hence, combining mountainous sceneries with the sight of the ocean.

What’s more, there are no ski resorts or lifts in the Lyngen Alps. So, you’ll feel like every place you reach, is just for you! You’ll get the opportunity to cross large and empty glaciers and valleys, and snowboard down untouched snow.

Please note that since I will guide you through remote places, some are located in avalanche prone terrain. My main objective will be to keep you safe while making sure you are having a wonderful time. So, in order to join this trip you need a good fitness level, and have previous experience.

If you wish to stay away from the crowds of the ski resorts, send me a request. Let me guide you across this incredible place!

About the guide

I was born and raised in the town of Narvik in northern Norway. As the case has been with generations of norwegians, my parents took me with them on trips into nature and up on the mountains even before I was able to walk by myself. When I was able to stand up, my father bought me my first pair of slalom skis and we went skiing in the slopes on the local resorts. From there, the love of nature and the mountains has continuously grown and eventually evolved into a wish to bring others and let them experience and explore together with me.

Today nature and the mountains are my "office", where I work all year round with guiding, as an instructor and tutor on different courses and as an observer for the avalanche forecasting service. Over the years I have worked and guided all over Norway, but it is the north that is home and here I spent most of my time. So come with me into nature and up on the mountains and explore the wild nature of northern Norway. Skitours in Narvik and Lyngen or climbs to Norway's national mountain of Stetind are just some of the adventures I can offer you, but the mountains up here in the north are almost limitless in abundance and possibilities.

I completely missed this trip by one month due to my fault but exacerbated by your booking system. I must have filled in the booking form about 10 times before the dates were 'correct' and I was not being charged for more than one day. Every time I tried to make changes, the form refreshed and all the details had to be filled in again. These sorts of trips/events are not like booking train tickets. Most include a window of opportunity that is heavily influenced by weather events. Your communication flow requires a booking to be made and paid before there is any connection with the guide or discussion about suitable days etc. I realise that your company is a booking agency that is concerned about introducing two parties but missing out on the management fee however I feel the system requires a more nuanced approach.

As Marius and I discovered, Svolvaergeita is currently off limits to climbing until the approach has been restored. Not sure when people will be able to access the mountain again but Marius and I are looking at other possible climbing options next week in Narvik. Jim

My sister and I did a day of ski touring in Narvik with Marius. It was such a great day. We left he Gratangen hotel at 9am and returned at 4pm. The mountain was only 15min from the hotel and was the perfect one day adventure. The snow quality was awesome, it was good weather and we had the entire mountain to ourselves. Marius tailored the trip to our ski level perfectly and was very patient and knowledgeable. I highly recommend guided ski touring in Narvik with Marius!! :)
