4 Days

Mar - Jun




Join me for this unique program of snowboarding and exploration in the amazing Troll Peninsula, Northern Iceland. This 4-day heliboarding tour will take you to first descents and peaks that no one else has ever stepped on before.

For this program, I will meet you at Akureyri. For the next days, our base will be the Klængshóll Lodge, in the Skíðadalur valley. The lodge is located at the heart of the best ski terrain in the valley. This allows us to fly to the best spots right from our lodge. The nearest runs are only 3 minutes away!

For details on the itinerary, have a look at the extra information below.

This program takes place in the fantastic Troll Peninsula, where 90% of the peaks are suitable for snowboarding. What makes this area different from other snowboarding areas in the world is the uniqueness of the mountains standing right next to the deep blue ocean. There are even 1,300 m runs along the coastline.

A unique highlight of snowboarding in the Troll Peninsula in the late season is the possibility of snowboarding under the midnight sun. And earlier in the season, we can even catch the faboulous northern lights.

The snow pack in this area is basically coastal. March to April is good for powder. Later, May and June are good months for corn snow. Finally, there can also be sporadic powder snow in June.

This area has slopes that suit all snowboarding levels, from first-time heliboarders to experts. Also, note that groups on this program can combine both snowboarders and skiers.

I know the Troll Peninsula like the back of my hand, and I am ready to share this experience with you for you to have the trip of a lifetime. This year 2018 is our 11th season of heliboarding operations, and counting!
