On arrival at Tromso airport we will make the 3.5 hour transfer north to Hamneidet. The next 6 days will be spent searching for the best splitboard touring and freeriding in some of the most beautiful spots on the planet. In the land of the midnight sun the weather is very changeable so we may choose to start early or later in the day depending on what the weather is doing.. Sunset is around 11pm and sunrise is around 3:30am so there is a lot of scope for the best weather window.
Fitness & Ability
Splitboard experience whilst advantageous is not strictly necessary. However, we will need to verify your suitability for the trip beforehand if you have none. A typical day will involve an ascent of 1000m vertical followed by an incredible descent. Starting at sea level, the walking is a lot easier than if you were at altitude here in the Alps. The only breath taking thing about it are the views….
- 6 days of UIAGM splitboard guiding with Paul Verdier
- 7 nights’ accommodation (shared room) in a private lodge
- Ground support vehicles and ferry crossings
- Home cooked dinner (on 5 nights) cooked breakfast & picnic lunch each day.
- Return transfers to Tromso airport
What’s Not Included
- Flights to Tromso
