Iceland - 2010 - Snowkiting Adventure Trip

Iceland - 2010 - Snowkiting Adventure Trip

Imagine having one thousand square kilometres of untracked powder snow, summer sunshine, near constant wind, and only your friends to share it with on a remote glacier in the Icelandic highlands: check out Snowkiter - Snowkiting adventure holidays for your ultimate kiting trip in 2010 and do something different this year!
The ultimate kiting trip for 2010: Langjökull glacier, Iceland - Friday May 14th to Friday 21st
Just two-and-a-half hour’s flight time from the UK and five hours from New York, Iceland offers an unparalleled combination of snow, wind and 24 hour daylight during the summer months.
Snowkiter have been running trips to this same destination for five years now and still can’t get enough of it. We try to provide everything we can to make your trip as effortless as possible for you, including, but not limited to:
• Full time guides and drivers for the whole week
• Cooked breakfast every day
• Packed lunch every day (except first and last days)
• Huge cooked dinners for the whole week
• All your transport, everywhere, in a jacked up superjeep.
• A very nice hotel right in the centre of the downtown for the first night
• Accommodation for the week in a luxurious timber cabin with a geothermal hot-tub
• A night out downtown in Reykjavik

Get in touch with either of us by email for more info: robert@snowkiter.co.uk, or email Einar in Iceland using einar@snowkiter.co.uk. or send an enquiry through our website.

Will Bjork be there?

Looks like a pretty badass adventure holiday. How easy/hard is it to learn to Kite board given you can already snowboard well enough? Does it change the dynamics of snowboarding considerably?

It is about half kite skills, half board. Most people spend a bit of time learning to fly a powerkite before they come, and get along fine without lessons. For those who are not so confident we have instruction available though.

Your weight and balance is used a bit differently, to account for the pull of the kite, but normal boarding skills are essential for carving and for free-riding back down the glacier when you pack up your kite at the end of the day!

No Bjork I'm afraid, she lives in London now, but the girls there are damned hot!
