Join Roger, an IFMGA certified guide, on this 5-day heliboarding trip in Val d’Aran, Pyrenees. With incomparable descents and amazing views from the helicopter ride, this is a 5 day exceptional snowboarding and skiing adventure.
This 5-day heliboarding trip in the Val d’Aran in the Pyrenees is designed to provide the most amazing routes possible for snowboarders and skiers. This trip is the perfect option to enjoy exclusive heli-drops with great backcountry touring, while appreciating exceptional views of the Pyrenees.
Snowboarding allows you to feel the adrenaline and speed of descending a mountain, and at the same time to enjoy incomparable views. But, reaching the perfect spots for snowboarding and skiing, sometimes is complicated. That is why one of the best ways to reach those spots is with a helicopter.
During our 5-day adventure, a helicopter will take us daily to a remote peak. The helicopter ride is an incredible opportunity to see the Pyrenees at their best. Once the helicopter drops us, the real rush begins: a descent of over 1000 meters awais for you every day. Our snowboarding touring day will continue across lonely valleys, on great untracked snow.
Upon descent, we will explore Val d’Aran and its lovely villages. You will savor traditional Spanish dishes, and listen to folkoric music mixed with the peace that surrounds the villages. Bordering France, Val d’Aran is one of the most fascinating places in Spain, not only for its history and culture, but also for its unique access to the Pyrenees.
I typically plan this 5 day heliboarding trip so that we make the most of each day. But, with so many things to do around Val d’Aran, and places to explore, 5 days might seem like they are not enough. So, if you wish to change the itinerary, I can adapt it to your requests.
If you want to experience this unique adventure in Val d’Aran, send me a request. We can discuss the itinerary in detail so I can accommodate all the things you want to do.

I love what I do and love to transmit my passion while guiding.
After touring the world fulfilling my dreams, I have put together all the knowledge gained and a strong background as a mountain guide to become one of the most versatile, dedicated and professional guides in the Pyrenees.
My resume has technical training in mountain medicine, snow studies, search and rescue complete training, meteorology and botany.
I spend the winters enjoying the unique snow conditions in the Aran Valley, as a ski touring and freeride Guide, and summers climbing the countless areas of excellent rock, either granite, limestone or conglomerate in the Pyrenees. I also spend a lot of time in Iceland during the summer guiding my friends and clients across these incredible landscapes.
While traveling the world, I make every effort to show the beauty of the landscapes, the quality of the rock and the best snow in the Pyrenees to everyone who wants to check them out.
Please get in touch with me if you want to discover the Pyrenees!

Awesome trip! Thanks to Roger for guiding me to the summit on a really extreme day of wind and rain. Unique and epic day out on the mountain. Also thanks to Maca at Explore Share for helping with the booking to ensure everything went smoothly, especially during these uncertain times. Great service!
Absolutely brilliant trip - would high recommend Roger and Chur they are fantastic, responsive and extremely helpful people!
It\'s a long slog of a climb, but doable as long as you\'re reasonably fit (but you don\'t need to be an Olympic athlete). The views are stunning. The Puente (bridge) de Mahoma is mentally tough with steep drops either side and some uncomfortable climbs. I\'d strongly recommend using a local guide as they help you with the planning, kit and techniques, they share knowledge of the surrounding area that you wouldn\'t get otherwise and they help you over the more challenging stretches

If I had to describe the trip in 4 words : \'It was epic-ally awesome
The helicopter was a surprise and it was awesome, it was a great first time experience in the backcountry. Our guide, Roger, was really helpful and patient with us and we found really good snow. The hiking up was especially tiring when it was really hot but the skiing was epic.
Roger, our guide, really made the trip memorable for us. He had a challenge every day to plan the route according to the snow conditions, temperatures (it was quite warm), the skills and endurance of our kids and keeping it fun for all of us. It really showed that he put thought into planning each day and wanted to find the best route for us to enjoy the backcountry and get some good skiing! He knows the area so well and every day he planned was awesome. The helicopter trip. It was planned by Roger and something we never would have thought of doing for our children\'s first backcountry experience but it was absolutely the best. \"Double thumbs up\" according to Willy, our son. The location that Roger picked out for the skiing and the hotel, Bahns de Tredos, was perfect for being in the backcountry all day and then returning to the hotel for a delicious late lunch, thermal hot tub soak and then a gourmet dinner all in a hut/backcountry setting. We felt very spoiled!
