Description

Experience the beautiful Lapland, Sweden, on this exciting heliboarding expedition. Join me for an incredible adventure to the Scandinavian Mountains for 7 days of fun. I can’t wait to show you around.

The gorgeous Lapland in Northern Sweden offers an area of 5,000 square kilometers (half the size of all Austrian ski resorts) to explore in a helicopter. We’ll enjoy 7.5 hours of helicopter fun, experiencing the best powder snow of the area. With 100 unique peaks to choose from, you’ll never get tired of it. The mountains range from 600 to 1,450 meters, and the highest is 2,100 meters!

Some of the snowboarding areas we can visit include: Riksgränsen, Abisko Alps, Kåtotjåkka, Nallo, Sälka and Kebnekaise. And some of the peaks we can snowboard or enjoy its view include Vassitjåkka, Vuoitasrita, Keron, Pallentjåkka and others.

This trip is organized upon request, with a 6-person group. It is recommended for advanced snowboarders in good physical condition. Skiers are welcome too!

If you are already savoring all the snow you’ll get to enjoy, send your request! I would love to be your guide.

I also offer a shorter 3-day trip. Be sure to check it out here.

Mountain Guide

I'm a UIAGM certified guide, skitouring-freeride and heliski guide. I'm a lifelong skier, climber and mountaineer, born in Prachovske skaly, a famous sandstone climbing area in the Czech Republic.
I've personally participated in 13 expeditions to 8thousander peaks and stood 5 times on an 8000m peak. I have guided guests on all continents (7 summits, etc..) in numerous treks, climbing or skitouring expeditions.
I run a guiding company in Prague and work for Patagonia, SKI TRAB and ABS avalanche backpacks. I spend my winter guiding in the Northern hemisphere, including heliski in Lappland (SWE), ski touring in Morocco or enjoying the best powder snow on earth in Japan.
The rest of the time I'm on expeditions in Nepal or South America and I spend most of the summer climbing in my hometown or guiding in the Alps.
I like Czech beer and food, passionate guests and jokes. If I'm not available my team will guide you instead.

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.
