Join Jurgen, a certified mountain guide, for this once-in-a-lifetime sailing and splitboarding experience in the Westfjords of Iceland. Each day, head out and up a different coastal mountain before careening back down to the sea on a splitboard. Enjoy the amenities of the yacht in the evening to recharge.
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!

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 had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
