Episode 5 of Xavier De Le Rue’s DIY Project comes from the Lofoten Islands. These magical islands in Arctic Norway have seen a big increase in backcountry skiers and snowboarders over the past few years and it’s easy to see why. Although the conditions can be challenging, as seen in this video in fact, Lofoten is clearly an awesome place. And when it’s on there really isn’t anywhere else quite like it.
The splitboarding and ski touring guide book to the Lofoten Islands is available to buy in The Gemsstock shop.
