Exciting travel and expedition reports from countries like Japan, Norway, Iceland, New Zealand, Canada, Romania and many other interesting regions, as well as Splitboard trips where you can be part of and many more information, region portraits and contacts to the local splitboard scene, are found here in our section splitboarding travel guidebook.
