The beginner course aims to make you an independent kiter, so you can do it alone on the snow with your own gear.
Snowkiting in Norway
Snow Kite Courses at Haukeliseter, Norway
The deepest snow in Norway. Flat Terrain. Windy. Welcome to Snowkite Paradise.
OUR WINTER ACTIVITIES
WELCOME TO HAUKELIFJELL
The team behind Kitesurfing.no was among the first to come to Haukelifjell to kite in 2007. The large open plains, with mountain peaks and frozen lakes, 1000 meters above sea level and above the tree line, with insane snow statistics and reliable wind conditions, were like a wet dream for us when we started operating there, and can best be described as a world-class snow kite spot.
Since then, the area has become a widely known destination in the kite community. We have been involved in exploring the area and have trained many instructors in the area. We can guarantee that we will find the best wind for the day and give you the best conditions for learning to kite.
In addition to the kiting, there are fantastic skiing and snowboarding opportunities in the area, both for those who like it airy and steep, and for those who prefer flatter terrain.
For those who prefer lift-based driving, Røldal and Haukelifjell Ski Center are a short drive east or west, and the weather difference means that we often find good snow and weather on one or the other side of the Haukeli tunnel. So here are all the possibilities for a fantastic weekend in the mountains.
We hold Snowkite Courses every weekend during the winter season from January to April.
Come and experience world-class snow kiting!
