Description

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.

If you are looking for a different type of trip, I also offer an 8 day trek in Landmannalaugar, Iceland.

Mountain Guide

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!

Our 5 day ski tour was an absolutely amazing trip, our guide Roger had unfortunately been unwell and so arranged another guide, Ruth, for the first 2 days. Both guides were fantastic, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and took us on terrain we would never have imagined was possible for us. We felt safe and in good hands throughout. The huts were comfortable and friendly with great food. It was the perfect introductory ski tour trip that I would recommend to anyone who is thinking of going.

Trip of a lifetime. As with all things mountains, things didn’t go exactly according to plan, weather forced changes, us tired and slow clients forced changes and roger handled these in stride and adjusted the plans seamlessly. He knew when to push and when to back off. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the mountains, history and the local plants and wildlife. I had high expectations for the trip and it was even better than I had imagined, if you’re thinking of doing a trip with Roger, I highly recommend him as a guide in whichever discipline you prefer.
