Splitboarding week in the Lofoten Islands, Norway

Splitboarding week in the Lofoten Islands, Norway | undefined

Join Ric, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, for an amazing splitboarding experience in the stunningly scenic and wildly remote Lofoten Islands.


7 Days



All levels


* Explore varied terrains and splitboard in several different spots in the area.

* Enjoy gorgeous views in one of Norway's most scenic locales.

* Get the chance to see the Northern Lights once the sun has set.


Most renowned for its world-class rock climbing, the Lofoten Islands are becoming an increasingly popular splitboarding destination as well!

And for good reason. There is plenty of pristine powder, loads of different types of terrains to explore and absolutely gorgeous scenery all around.

Join me for an unforgettable week of sampling some of the top splitboarding spots here. We’ll explore different touring options on all of the islands, but mainly focus our sights on the eastern island of Austvagoya.

The goal will be to make roughly two ascents and descents each day. These will generally be of moderate difficulty and if you’re looking for an easier day, you can always opt out of the second ascent.

As we go, we will be blessed by the astounding scenery all around us. Mountain, sea and fjords will be everywhere we go and we will be more likely than not able to splitboard down from the summit of a mountain all they way to the sea.

You can do that few places anywhere, so enjoy!

When you are not splitboarding, feel free to explore the town of Lofoten. The old fishing village boats unique architecture, which we will enjoy as we stay in Rorbu-style fishing cabins, and a quaint feeling that you will not be able to match in most other popular splitboarding destinations.

There will even be the chance to see the Northern Lights after the sun has set each day! The lights are still visible in March, although less common than earlier on in the winter.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for an incredible one-week splitboarding adventure in the stunning scenery of the lovely Lofoten Islands!

If you like the look of this trip then I think you will also enjoy my one-week ski touring program in Senja, near Tromsø!

About the guide

Mountain Guide

I divide my time between working overseas as an off piste ski and splitboard guide in the winter, doing some Alpine guiding in the summer, and teaching rock climbing and other mountain skills from home in North Wales, UK during the rest of the time.

I started rock climbing aged 14, and since then I've skied, climbed and snowboarded in many parts of the world. My experience includes everything from high altitude mountaineering and ski touring in remote places to sunny rock climbing in familiar surroundings on the doorstep.
I started my guiding working as a UK qualified mountaineering instructor (MIC) and then qualified as a UIAGM after that.

I spent a number of years living and working full time as a mountain guide in the Alps, based in the Chamonix valley, and now I divide my time between the UK, the Alps and other places around the world, particularly Norway and Iceland.

I am a regular trainer and assessor of UK mountaineering instructor awards, and I am a trainer for the British Mountain Guides. I'm also a qualified teacher in Outdoor Education.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
