8 Days





Explore the breathtaking Troll Peninsula in Iceland

An expert guide, will ensure safety and maximize your enjoyment.

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. 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. Relax your body by bathing in one of the municipal hot springs in the towns of the area at the end of each day. You will also be able 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!

About the guide

Mountain 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!

What people are saying about Roger



This was a great trip. The guide, Guim Llort (who works for Roger), was excellent. Highly skilled, competent, and a people person. As far as the technical climbing goes, everything went smoothly. The area is quite beautiful. The Refugios were good, but be ready for crowded dorm style sleeping. Many of the travelers, not associated at all with the Explore-Share trip, who were staying at the Refugios, seemed unfamiliar with hut etiquette such as keeping quiet when people are trying to sleep, and not understanding how to use the "red-light" function on their headlamps. Also, the food is pretty basic. I have some dietary restrictions; though these were accommodated, my choices were limited.



The whole process has been excellent, the communication from our guide Roger was brilliant, very clear throughout. We undertook the climb as a group of 4, Roger's knowledge of the mountain and the area is superb, excellent mountain guide, trip of a lifetime and would fully recommend both the trip and Roger as a guide.



There is not only 2 days 1 night, the consideration from the professional guides started since I booked the activity. Thanks to both Roger and Ruth, that we had wonderful and unforgettable snow hiking experience.



Absolutely brilliant trip - would high recommend Roger and Chur they are fantastic, responsive and extremely helpful people!


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.
