MINT Snowboarding since 2006. World Snow Award Winners in 2016 & 2017!
Having spent the last few years exploring for ourselves, it’s time to take you to the most breathtaking snowboard destination on earth, the arctic north of Norway. We will be based out of the very northern Norwegian town Narvik, with its classic Arctic backdrop. From Narvik you can directly access the unique ski resort of Narvikfjellet, surrounded by majestic mountains and deep fjords. Norway’s hidden gem, Narvikfjellet boasts some incredible off piste terrain which is often voted as the best off-piste skiing in Scandinavia!
This week-long course includes a mixture of lift accessed backcountry snowboarding, along with several days of splitboard touring and a day of heli-skiing in nearby Riksgränsen. This awesome combination will allow you to explore further and deeper into the amazing terrain available.
This course is fully inclusive so all you need to do is book your flight and pack your splitboarding kit, we’ve taken care of everything else!

A day of heliboarding just makes this trip even more varied and exhilarating!
