Experience The Thrill Of Snowkiting in Norway

For some people a vacation in Norway means relaxing at a winter resort or ice fishing on Lake Limingen. But for others a Norway vacation means taking part in one of the country's most popular extreme sports known as snowkiting.

Norway has long been a favorite spot for winter sports because of the consistent snow and cold and the mountainous terrain. But snowkiting is quickly becoming a favorite throughout the country for both locals and visitors.

The sport involves strapping one's feet into a pair of downhill skis or onto a snowboard, strapping on a harness that is attached to an oversized kite, and letting the wind blow you off a mountaintop and down a large snowy slope.

There are several great locations throughout Norway for great snowkiting. One of the most popular, however, is in the northern region of Varanger. This area is situated very close to the blustery Arctic Ocean and provides very heavy and very consistent winds.

For some people this region can be a little bit overwhelming due to the strength of the winds but most kiters - even those at the beginner skill level - seem to manage just fine. The location is ideal not only because of the great wind conditions and fresh powder that falls almost daily but also because of the fantastic views that can be enjoyed from the take-off points.

If you are brave enough and are looking for some truly professional-caliber snowkiting, then you will want to visit the large mountain plateau of Hardangervidda. This is Norway's top spot for snow kiting and there have been hundreds of courses carved out over the years in the area with new ones being carved every week.

Although the courses are largely designed and used by professional level kiters, it is a great place for kiters of all skill levels. The vast area has sections that are great for beginners as well as seasoned veterans of the sport.

If your dream has always been to hit the slopes of Norway in a unique way or if you just want to try something a little bit adventurous and out of the ordinary for your next vacation, try your hand at snowkiting in the beautiful mountains of Norway.
