Highlights

  • Enjoy the stunning scenery of the Westfjords.
  • Make many 700 to 1,400 meter vertical descents over the course of the trip.
  • Sail from one spot to the next on our expedition yacht.

Description

Situated in the northwestern tip of Iceland, the Westfjords is a mountainous peninsula and makes for the perfect spring splitboarding destination!

The fun begins after we meet up at the Ísafjörður Airport and board the Comrades, our custom-fitted expedition vessel and sail trawler. From this small city, we will sail out and explore the mountainous shorelines of the various fjords on the peninsula.

Each day, we'll sail to a different spot in the Westfjords and head to land. From here, we'll make numerous 700 to 1,400-meter ascents up into the coastal mountains, enjoying phenomenal views before racing back down to the beach.

When we're not out on the slopes, we'll be able to enjoy the amenities on the yacht, such as the sauna and hot tub, or go sea kayaking.

In the evening, after enjoying a dinner cooked by our private chef, we will go above deck and keep our eyes peeled for the breathtaking Northern Lights.

By the end of our week, we'll have made a big loop around the Westfjords and enjoyed the incredible views of its coastal mountains.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettable 7-day splitboarding expedition through the Icelandic Westfjords, from our own private yacht!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you may also enjoy my 15-day splitboarding expedition to the East Coast of Greenland!

About the guide

I started snowboarding in 1996 and have dedicated my life to this sport since 2005, spending several seasons Down Under and travelling and exploring the mountains in different corners of the world with my snowboard and splitboard.

I became an Austrian State certified Snowboard Guide in 2012. I'm based in Zillertal, Austria, where I guide snowboarding and freeriding tours during the winter. I also organize trips to the Caucasus in Georgia and, for heliboarding, I put together private week-long trips in Romanian Carpathian Mountains.

In The Springtime, I usually guide in one of my favorite areas on planet: the Norwegian Arctic. Splitboarding between the fjords and the Lyngen Alps is a one-of-a-kind experience!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
