Iceland, 8 Day Guided Ski Mountaineering Tour


Join Roger, an IFMGA certified guide, for 8 days of thrilling ski mountaineering on the peaks of the Troll peninsula in beautiful Iceland.


8 Days





Iceland is an amazing country for a variety of reasons, least of which is the great skiing!

For 8 exciting days, I would like to guide you on a ski mountaineering adventure that you will never forget. The area we will be staying and skiing is the Troll Peninsula. There you will get to choose from approximately 100 different skiable mountains. All of the mountains range in height from 1,000 to 1,500 metres. And because of the area’s altitude, the mountains are actually comparable to the 3,000 metre peaks of the Pyrenees. It is also worth mentioning that a bonus of skiing in Iceland is you can ski right to the sea!

Throughout the trip your group will have access to a private vehicle. As a result, depending on weather and snow conditions, we will be able to go to wherever the best skiing opportunities are. And at the end of each day, you will get to relax your body by bathing in one of the municipal hot springs in the towns of the area. And every night, you will get to sleep in a comfortable bed in the nearby, exclusive house that will be your accommodation.

Moreover, along with a week of great ski mountaineering, you will also get to spend a day in the capital of IcelandReykjavik. In the city, you will get to explore and experience its vibrant nightlife.

Iceland is a fantastic country to visit. The people, the scenery and especially the skiing is incredible. So if you would like to experience it for yourself, just send me a request and let’s have an adventure!

Are you looking for more great skiing expeditions? Then come and join me on this 6 day traverse of the famous Haute Route in the Alps.

About the guide

I love what I do and love to transmit my passion while guiding.

After touring the world fulfilling my dreams, I have put together all the knowledge gained and a strong background as a mountain guide to become one of the most versatile, dedicated and professional guides in the Pyrenees.

My resume has technical training in mountain medicine, snow studies, search and rescue complete training, meteorology and botany.

I spend the winters enjoying the unique snow conditions in the Aran Valley, as a ski touring and freeride Guide, and summers climbing the countless areas of excellent rock, either granite, limestone or conglomerate in the Pyrenees. I also spend a lot of time in Iceland during the summer guiding my friends and clients across these incredible landscapes.

While traveling the world, I make every effort to show the beauty of the landscapes, the quality of the rock and the best snow in the Pyrenees to everyone who wants to check them out.

Please get in touch with me if you want to discover the Pyrenees!

Our 5 day ski tour was an absolutely amazing trip, our guide Roger had unfortunately been unwell and so arranged another guide, Ruth, for the first 2 days. Both guides were fantastic, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and took us on terrain we would never have imagined was possible for us. We felt safe and in good hands throughout. The huts were comfortable and friendly with great food. It was the perfect introductory ski tour trip that I would recommend to anyone who is thinking of going.

Trip of a lifetime. As with all things mountains, things didn’t go exactly according to plan, weather forced changes, us tired and slow clients forced changes and roger handled these in stride and adjusted the plans seamlessly. He knew when to push and when to back off. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the mountains, history and the local plants and wildlife. I had high expectations for the trip and it was even better than I had imagined, if you’re thinking of doing a trip with Roger, I highly recommend him as a guide in whichever discipline you prefer.

Awesome trip! Thanks to Roger for guiding me to the summit on a really extreme day of wind and rain. Unique and epic day out on the mountain. Also thanks to Maca at Explore Share for helping with the booking to ensure everything went smoothly, especially during these uncertain times. Great service!

It's a long slog of a climb, but doable as long as you're reasonably fit (but you don't need to be an Olympic athlete). The views are stunning. The Puente (bridge) de Mahoma is mentally tough with steep drops either side and some uncomfortable climbs. I'd strongly recommend using a local guide as they help you with the planning, kit and techniques, they share knowledge of the surrounding area that you wouldn't get otherwise and they help you over the more challenging stretches

We had a very good trip — thank you!   Roger was really a great guide and we were very pleased working with Nacho as well.  The itinerary went well and Roger did a good job adjusting the itinerary as needed. Thanks again!

The helicopter was a surprise and it was awesome, it was a great first time experience in the backcountry. Our guide, Roger, was really helpful and patient with us and we found really good snow.  The hiking up was especially tiring when it was really hot but the skiing was epic.



April, 2017

Roger, our guide, really made the trip memorable for us. He had a challenge every day to plan the route according to the snow conditions, temperatures (it was quite warm), the skills and endurance of our kids and keeping it fun for all of us. It really showed that he put thought into planning each day and wanted to find the best route for us to enjoy the backcountry and get some good skiing!  He knows the area so well and every day he planned was awesome. The helicopter trip. It was planned by Roger and something we never would have thought of doing for our children's first backcountry experience but it was absolutely the best. "Double thumbs up" according to Willy, our son. The location that Roger picked out for the skiing and the hotel, Bahns de Tredos, was perfect for being in the backcountry all day and then returning to the hotel for a delicious late lunch, thermal hot tub soak and then a gourmet dinner all in a hut/backcountry setting.  We felt very spoiled!

If I had to describe the trip in 4 words : 'It was epic-ally awesome



January, 2015

Roger has the 3Ps, Passionate, Professional and Prudent. I did tour skiing in the Pyrenees (Beciver 2660 m) and the tour was amazing. He adapted his rhythm to the rhythm of the group and he is prudent something that I really appreciate. Going up was hard but then once you get to the top you enjoy the view and you forgot your name. I would totally recommend him. Is not that easy to find trustful guides. He is your man!!!
