Follow IFMGA-certified guide Jokull to the Troll Peninsula in northern Iceland and spend a day splitboarding through the captivating countryside.
Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun
Take a trip to northern Iceland and splitboard some of the best powder in the country! I can guide you on a great day – or more – exploring the Trollaskagi Peninsula while taking advantage of its wide variety of excellent slopes!
Looking out into the Greenland Sea, the Troll Peninsula is located in the mountains between the Eyjafjorour and the Skagafjorour, making it relatively isolated from the rest of the country. It has peaks over 1,000 meters, with Kerling (1,538m) as its tallest peak. This makes it a snow sport paradise, with unbelievable views and great runs.
The terrain has untouched valleys and high ridges, and is suitable for all levels of splitboarder. The eclectic runs and landscape make it possible to enjoy new and exciting lines as you trek and ride through the region.
It would be difficult to imagine a better place to watch the Northern Lights, which is a highlight for travelers who come earlier in the season. If you happen to be arriving later in the season, we can enjoy the endless days that accompany it and ride down awesome runs in the midnight sun!
These mountains are my home, and I am excited to share them with you. I can guarantee you will have a safe and enjoyable trip, and my knowledge will give you a regional perspective that will enrich your experience. You will ride and splitboard through places that only the locals know about. We will have a great time that you will always remember.
While this program is suitable for all levels of splitboarder, you will want to have relevent experience and the ability to meet the challenges associated with it. You should be in good shape for the trip.
If you are interested in extending your trip, or if you want to take on a multi-day adventure, let me know! I can design a program just for you, and recommend great accommodation that will place us in the best snow on the peninsula.
Book this now, and explore the Troll Peninsula on an epic day splitboarding in Iceland!

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 was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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
