Motorhome ski or snowboard road trip in Norway! Have you watched videos of people skiing or snowboarding from mountain top through untouched powder all the way to sea, and thought I want to do that? Well, that is just one of the many adventures you can have backcountry ski touring and splitboarding in Norway with Snowbusters. 

 

Our two-week trip goes to Tromso in the far north of Norway – well within the Arctic circle. Norway is renowned for stunning ocean views, reliable snow, and stable conditions making it one of the best places to freeride on the planet. Based in motorhomes we can park up where we wish to explore this magical region and make the most of the conditions.

 

The exact itinerary of this ski touring and splitboarding adventure in Norway will depend on the weather and snow conditions. But the plan is to do roughly 6 days skiing or snowboarding followed by a rest day, another 6 days of backcountry fun in the mountains. Of course, everyone is more than welcome to have a rest day any time.

After arriving in Tromso, via a connection from Oslo, there are many different areas we could explore:

 

Tromso

From the city, you can reach the 1200m high hill Tromsdalstinden. With plenty of lines to take and stunning views of the fjords, it is the perfect place to start. Also, the nearby Kvaloya Island is within an hour’s drive from the city, wherein in the right conditions you can ski all the way down to the sea.

 

Narvik

About three hours from Tromso you’ll find the industrial city of Narvik. Just above this is the Narvikfjellet ski resort with excellent mountains that are just made for freeriding. It’s the perfect spot to tour splitboard for a few days.

 

Lofoten Islands

The Lofotens are snow-free earlier than the rest of the region, but if conditions are right they are stunningly beautiful and a fantastic area to tour. Around 5-6 hours from Tromso, Vesteralen – the Islands north of Harstad – are a must-visit and are similar to the mountains on Kvaloya Island. Tricky to reach the Lofotens are almost a separate trip but offer idyllic peaks and slopes surrounded by the ocean.

 

Lyngen Alps

Around 1.5 hours northeast of Tromso you’ll find 2000m mountains that rise straight from the sea. It’s the most popular destination for freetoneers with more technical ascents and extreme slopes, gills, etc. The freeriding here can be too extreme for some, but fortunately, in the southern Lyngen Alps, the peaks are smaller with easier slopes providing options for a range of abilities.

 

Alta and Lapland

Alta is a 4-5 drive from the Tromso. Here you’ll find smaller hills, that feels even more exotic. The peaks are crowded together, there are reindeer running free and the area often receives extra powder. From here it’s possible to cross the border into Sweden or Finland to freeride in Lapland. While it is often -15°C in Alta, in Lapland temperatures drop to below -40°C…

 

Join this two-week Norwegian backcountry adventure to explore one of the best freeride destinations on the planet.
