Are you a lover of splitboarding? If you are coming to Iceland, you can’t miss this program in the Troll Peninsula.

Iceland is close to fairy tale in beauty. Furthermore, it offers many opportunities to enjoy sailing and sliding through magnificent untouched snow. Come with me on this 5-day program and discover the enchanted natural spots of northern Iceland.

Our meeting point will be the city of Akureyri. Then, on the rest of our tour, we’ll enjoy riding through untracked slopes towards the sea. In addition, we’ll enjoy sailing and visit Flatey Island, in Skjálfandi and Hrísey Island, in Eyjafjordur. As for the accommodation, we’ll spend our nights in the schooner.

Please, take a look below for a more detailed description of the itinerary.

Keep in mind that you should have some prior splitboarding or skiing experience to join this trip. Also, it is important to have a very good level of fitness.

So, does this program in Iceland sound exciting? Then do not hesitate to send the request to book your place. It will be a pleasure to guide you on this amazing splitboarding and sailing adventure.

As a local guide, I lead many programs in Iceland. Another option could be this the East Fjords trip. Check it out!

About the guide

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!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
