Come and enjoy this splitboarding adventure in Iceland with IFMGA certified guide Jokull, where your starting point and lodging is a beautiful sail boat.
Feb, Mar, Apr, May
The sailboat which will be your lodging as well as your transportation is named the Aurora. It is a terrific vessel that will provide you with plenty of comfort and delicious meals every day. Moreover, you will also get to enjoy spectacular views from the boat’s deck, where you can enjoy the sensational scenery of Iceland.
Our first stop on this trip will be the abandoned whaling station of Hesteyri. You will get plenty of time to explore this fascinating place that represents a time long past. And because of the surreal nature of the seasons during this trip you will also get the chance to enjoy a midnight run under the late night sun!
For the next few days, we will be stopping in amazing places like Veiðileysufjörður and Lónafjörður. These two fjords offer an assortment of fantastic splitboarding descents on virgin slopes. They also offer some great views, and in the case of Lónafjörður, opportunities for kayaking and seal watching. Other highlights on the remainder of the trip include Hrafnfjörður, where you can enjoy more descents and mussle picking, and the bay of Ísafjarðardjúp, which we will cross on our way back to Isafjordur.
A great adventure, on both land and sea, this 6 day splitboarding tour is unforgettable. To be a part of it, just send me a request, come to Iceland and board the Aurora.
I can also take you on a week long splitboarding adventure in the Troll Peninusla.
We will arrive at Isafjordur then board the sailboat, Aurora. We will set sail at approximately 2:00 pm and make our way to the village of Hesteyri, which you will get to explore, and even enjoy a midnight splitboarding run.
Today we will go over avalanche safety training, before traversing to Veiðileysufjörðuras.
We will splitboard around the Lónafjörður before returning to the sailboat for the night.
Today we will continue enjoying the slopes of Lónafjörður. You will also have the option to do some kayaking or seal watching as well.
Today we will venture to the Hrafnfjörður, where you will get to enjoy more great splitboarding, along with mussel picking on the shoreline.
On the final day of the trip, depending on weather conditions, we will enjoy some splitboarding in the morning, before returning to Isafjordur, where you will get to fly back to Reykjavik or enjoy a night in the town.

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.

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 !"
