Kayak and splitboard expedition Norway

What if…

Two words, that can lead to the best ideas. What if we would strap our splitboard and ski’s to a kayak? It started a couple of years ago with an idea, an idea that would keep coming back and so… And so the four of us left for the Lyngen Alps, 300km above the Arctic circle, a two week journey with fully loaded kayaks, paddling through the fjords, looking for steep lines and hard to reach places. When do you call a trip an expedition? How tough should it be and how far away do you have to get from civilisation? Just watch and be the judge…
