Description

Whether you are taking your first steps into splitboarding or you are an experienced rider, this trip is for you!

The Lyngen Alps (1,833m) are a mountain range in the northeast of the Troms county, in Norway. It dominates the Lyngen Peninsula, stretching over 90 kilometers north to south, along the western shore of the Lyngen fjord.

The Lyngen Alps are one of the top ski touring and splitboarding destinations in the world. They feature outstanding backcountry terrain for all levels. Therefore, I will adapt our trip’s itinerary to guests’ skill level, prior splitboarding experience, and preferences.

During our 8-day journey, we will traverse across the Lyngen Alps’ almost-untouched slopes that stretch down to the sea, blue glaciers, glacial rivers, and deep valleys, enjoying stunning views along the way! We will climb some of the most magnificent peaks in the peninsula, including Daltinden (1,533m), Sorfjelltinden (1,468m), Kavringtinden (1,289m), Storgalten (1,219m), Middagstinden (1,072m), Rassecarri (1,166m), and Stetinden (920m).

At this time of the year, we will probably be lucky to see the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights), the bright natural lights that ignite the night sky in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. Splitboarding under this magical show of lights will be a memorable experience!

This program is open to everyone, from newcomers to advanced riders. I will take a minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 6. However, if a larger group is interested, an assistant guide will join us.

Don’t miss this unique splitboarding adventure in the remote Lyngen Alps! Send me your booking request now.

In case you are interested, I also offer a ski touring version of this program. If you are considering similar activities in other European countries, check out the splitboarding tours I lead in Carros de Foc (Spain), Kola Peninsula (Russia), and Fagaras Mountains (Romania).

Xavi (Terrassa, Catalonia, 1963). Actually I’m living in Prullans.
During several years I have been practicing my two big passions, mountaineering and photography as hobbies. Actually I’m a High Mountain Guide and photographer in outdoor BTT races, mountaineering marathons or climbing competitions.
In 1982 I did became a member of Servei General d'Informació de Muntanya, a specialized mountain library. And from 1998 I’m working as High Mountain Guide for NKBV (Alpine dutch team).
After working 6 winters as a lifeguard patrol in a Catalan ski resort, I spent a few seasons of the southern summer working as a High Mountain Guide for Azimut 360 and Chilemontaña, two agencies located in Chile, leading clients through the Patagonia and into America's highest peak, the Aconcagua.
Since 2005 I lead my own clients around the world as a freelancer Mountain Guide. From September 2007 I manage the Companhia de Guies de Montanha web, bound to Carros de Foc. I have take part in many expeditions to Andes in South America and Himalaya, Karakorum and Hindu Kush in Asia.
I’ll like to show you “my” mountains, “my” Pyrenees and of course, other mountains around the world. I’ll like to guide you till de top of Aconcagua, Ararat, skiing down from Elbrus, or Kola’s peninsula in Russia.
