Discover the Ultimate Arctic Adventure: Splitboarding the Tromsø Archipelago.
Without a doubt, Arctic Norway is the most incredible splitboard destination on earth. Picture yourself in the heart of the Arctic, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes of pristine snow-covered mountains, deep fjords, and the enchanting Northern Lights dancing across the night sky. Prepare for the adventure of a lifetime as you explore the picturesque Tromsø Archipelago over seven thrilling days of splitboarding.
Throughout this adventure you’ll have the opportunity to traverse multiple islands surrounding Tromsø, heading deep into the remote arctic wilderness. Whether it’s conquering the mountains of Kvaløya, Ringvassøya, Vengsøy, Tamokdalen, mainland Tromsø, or Southern Lyngen accessible by road, or embarking on a boat expedition from Ersfjord to access a remote island, the possibilities are endless.
Tromsø isn’t just another splitboarding destination; it’s a step away from the more popular ski touring itineraries and an expedition into the unknown, a chance to disconnect from the daily grind and reconnect with the wild. As you ascend the snow-clad peaks, every turn you make offers unrivaled views of this Arctic wonderland. It’s a place where untouched powder stashes await your descent, and the sense of freedom is boundless.
