Kiting in snow

Talking about kiting, most people visualize a kite in the waves at some beach. But kiting in snow is an adventure that is a must to try if you like a bit of adrenaline and action!

Kiting at Røros

Røros is one of the most popular places in Trøndelag to kite, which means to stand on a board on the water, or skiing on the snow, and using the power of a kite to gain momentum. You will really get to know the natural elements when the wind makes full tension in the pull, and you know that the speed increases and you turn the way you want, when you pull the rope.

Find the best wind conditions

Storwartz outside Røros centre, has extremely good wind conditions. At Storwartz you will find large, flat areas, but also some hilly terrain that is more suitable for intermediates. Kiting at Storwartz works in all wind directions. Since such a large part of the area is flat, it is especially suitable for beginners.

Kiting at Meråker

If you want to kite in powder snow, Meråker is a great option! Here you will find a hilly terrain with a great view. The best place to kite here is Kirkebyfjellet, and the season is from December to April. 

Kiting in Tydal

In Tydal you find Stugusjøen, which is a great lake with good snow conditions all winter. In the early winter the water is drained from the lake, which creates nice elevations close to land. 

Kiting at Tynset
