Mar, Apr, May, 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!

I'm Iceland's first and only IFMGA internationally certified mountain guide. I'm a member of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides ACMG with whom I finished my certification. I have climbed and skied extensively all over the world, and I lived and worked in both the European Alps and the mountains of Western Canada.
I have brought this wealth of diverse experiences to Iceland and the Arctic North where I have to my name over a hundred first ascents and descents in Iceland and Greenland.
My love of the mountains grew from an early age working as a shepherd on my grandparent's farm on the Troll Peninsula in Northern Iceland. Or maybe it had something to do with my name, which in English would translate directly to Glacier Mountain man.
If you want to discover this beautiful country, please get in touch with me and let's leave together for incredible adventure!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Explore-share was easy to use and the staff and guide w ere very responsive. The trip descriptions were accurate and the pricing reasonable. I would definitely recommend the site for people looking to do guided hiking.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
