Your snowkiting lessons
Do you really want to learn snowkiting? Then the focus needs to be on:
Duration: 24 – 36 hours within 6 days
Hour 1: theory, terminology, wind window specifics.
Hour 2: unpacking and packing the kite, security, safety release.
Hour 3 – 4: basic handling of small kite, starting and landing first riding attempts.
Hour 5 – 6: If you are capable of basic independent riding, you can use the equipment for the rest of the day for further practise. The instructor will keep an eye on you, ride in the same area and guide you via intercom if needed.
Hour 1 – 2: theory of upwind/downwind riding and turns + live examples, launch & land area selection, multiple ways of launching and landing the kite.
Hour 3 – 4: guided upwind/downwind riding and techniques, turns.
Hour 5 – 6: independent guided riding for the rest of the day.
DAY 3 – 6
In the remaining time you will learn:
- to ride up/down the mountain
- terrain navigation
- kite looping.
You can try to fly different kite brands and models and gain more knowledge about “reading the wind” and riding across the wide open landscape.
You can learn first jumps and explore the endless plains of the Hardangervidda plateau on some longer backcountry trip with your snowkite!
Place with one of the best conditions for snowkiting in the world

Kiting Norway / Hardangervidda / Haugastøl / Ustaoset / Orteren / Dyranut / Fagerheim / Laegrid / Halne / Skulevika / Skiftesjoen
Huge ridable area, stable wind and really looong winter season. Giant lakes, gradual hills, lots of snow. No trees or wires wide far. Just whistling wind, you … and kite!
Fagerheim is kind of a strategic location. Being located by the main road at the Hardangervidda plateau, you can kite right in front of your door or reach any spot on the plateau within 15-minute drive. If you are looking for a beginner conditions and flat area or advanced terrains with steep hills and valleys of powder, both are just a stone’s throw from our base.
