2023 THE ARCTIC ROAD TRIP LYNGEN
COURSE DATE: 09/04/23 – 16/04/23 PRICE: £3155.00 AVAILABILITY: FULL
Sheer white mountains rise steeply from the cold dark blue waters of the narrow Fjords that forge this wild coastline deep inside the Arctic circle. The elements have been hard at work here carving and shaping the in-hospitable wilderness into a Backcountry Freeriders dreamland.
The Lyngen Alps, found in the far Northern Fjords of Norway, have for a long time been a favourite Splitboarding destination of mine. This magical and mystical area is host to a unique mountain wilderness that is rarely found yet surprisingly easy to access from the road and by Splitboard.
By Road and by Splitboard… The Arctic Road Trip is born!
From Tromso a well maintained road system loops and laps its way around the deep fjords that encircle the mountains. From almost every turn amazing Freeride lines appear into view, often accessed straight from the road side. So what better way to explore this amazing terrain than from the freedom of your own independent mobile road based accommodation?
For this ‘expedition’ style Splitboard trip, we will explore these incredible mountains from the relative comfort of a modern ‘winter proof’ motorhome.
The freedom to explore, to drive and search for lines and when you find them to simply park and ride. No agenda, no destination, no fixed abode, just the will to explore and ride untouched peaks from the front door of our mobile home.
The options are as numerous as the peaks that fill the horizon.
Flight to Tromso and transfer to our mobile lodge and start the adventure.
Avalanche search and rescue training. Splitboard touring.
Return the mobile lodge and fly home from Tromso.
Our Arctic Road trip caters for Advanced Backcountry Snowboarders with previous Splitboard experience.
