1. What are my payment options? Can I do a payment plan?
Yes! We accept multiple payment gateways. If you sign up directly on our page we accept many forms of credit card and a payment plan split into 3 pieces. You can also do a wire transfer directly with Lofoten Lodge to minimize some transaction fees. If you are not Norwegian you must account for the wiring fees from Transferwise. :) Wires preferred to be done in one payment, but can be done in 2 pieces: 1/2 deposit, and other 1/2 completed payment by Feb 1st, 2018.
2. I need to rent some gear, can I?
Yes! When you register, there will be a questionnaire and you can select the items you need to rent and give us your sizing. The northern alpine guides rent out backcountry packs with probe, shovels, beacons, touring ski + skins, etc. We are working on splitboard rental options and are taking requests there, so we know your sizing and we know how many people to accommodate.
3. Is there a shuttle to the lodge?
Yes, we arrange pickups from Svolvaer Airport. The cheapest flights fly into Evenes Airport and they do daily shuttles to Svolvaer. *fee unknown
4. Can I link up with other campers and cut my costs?
Yes! When you sign up, you are invited to a private facebook and can coordinate traveling together.
5. Can I get a discount if I come with a friend?
Yes! We have cabin of 4 ladies discounted if you all come and play.
6. I am not sure if my skill level is high enough. Also, I don't really know how to surf, can I still try with the group?
Yes! Everyone will be in groups of their level for both the daily expeditions and surfing. We will have surf instructors and mountain guides for rock climbing and touring. You must be able to navigate yourself with basic speed and confidence down medium to expert terrain slopes to ensure safety and ease of travel for your groups. You do not need to have backcountry experience, but must be able to follow the lead of your guide to keep you safe, so you can focus on the fun from there.
7. I am coming alone, is that normal?
Absolutely! The majority of our campers fly solo, but they leave with some sincerely awesome new sisters.
8. What other costs do I need to be prepared for?
Flight or driving costs, shuttle to Svolvaer Airport, and any rental gear.
9. Whats the cheapest way to get there?
We suggest Norwegian Air for the most competitive international prices!
Ex. Prices as low as $159 oneway LAX -> OSLO before luggage fees :)
Evenes/Harstad/Narvik will be your cheapest flight option that is only a few hours from the Lofoten Lodge. Flights around $109 one way from Oslo Airport with 2 shuttles to Svolvaer Airport daily. Svolvaer Airport direct will be the most convenient awesome option, but SAS Airlines will have to be your carrier then.
FROM THE PEAKS TO THE BEACH - OPTIONAL ARCTIC SURFING
In addition to split boarding & back country skiing we offer to add ons to make your trip as adventurous and dynamic as possible. As us about outdoor climbing, kayaking and arctic surfing.
LOFOTEN SKI LODGE
So...this kind of sounds like a fairytale...Where will I be staying? We know that getting enough sleep is the key to being your most vibrant, energized self. Since we are aiming to provide you with an extraordinary, blow your mind experience (and make sure you are comfortable) we have partnered with Lofoten Ski Lodge , located and tucked away in its own private fjord in beautiful Kabelvag (only 10 minute drive from the closest airport Svolvær).
It is worth mentioning that these renovated ROUGH-LUXE traditional fisherman´s cabins, all have fjord views and access to some of Lofotens finest backcountry terrain.
Okay, Im getting pretty excited. Will I be safe on all these epic adventures? We want you to have the best possible experience, feel safe but also get to push outside your comfort zone. That´s why we have partnered with Northern Alpine Guides , world class mountain guides we stand behind.
But, who are we?
PRSNT MINDFUL, ADVENTURE HOSTS
We are two weirdos and professional snowboarders hailing from opposite sides of the world. We were attracted to each other for the many passions we share, like outdoor adventures, creating community, an urge to protect our natural playgrounds and living mindful, healthy lifestyles. With the tools, knowledge, and experiences we have gained through our careers as professional athletes, we hope to empower people to integrate long-term commitments and intrinsic motivation towards adopting a healthy lifestyle, self-optimization, wellness, happiness and care for our environment.
A central goal for PRSNT ADVENTURE RETREATS is to inspire as many people as possible to spend time in the elemental outdoors, developing a deeper connection to nature, to each other and to themselves. As traveling nomads for over 15 years, we have seen a lot of incredible places on this earth. To give you the adventure of your life, we have invested a lot of time finding "out of this world" locations for our retreats. We have a feeling that Lofoten and it´s dramatic landscape have that extra edge that will give you the adventure you are seeking deeply in your soul...
