    Join me on this 8-day ski touring program in Iceland and let’s explore the magical land of trolls together!

    Our 8-day adventure will start in Milan, Italy where participants will board a flight to the magical country of Iceland. Once we arrive to Reykjavik, skiers will be transferred to the charming town of Olafsjorour. 

    In the northeast of Iceland, Ólafsfjörður is located at the mouth of Eyjafjörður fjord. This beautiful and remote town offers the ideal conditions for winter sports and I will be happy to safely guide you around the amazing mountains that surround it.

    Iceland offers one of the most exotic and beautiful places for ski touring adventures. Its breathtaking scenery will make this trip unforgettable!

    Regarding our accommodation, participants will be staying in a house / apartment with kitchen use in  Ólafsfjörður for 6 nights. And for the last night of our trip, we will rest in a hotel in Reykjavik (double room).

    If you are ready for this ski adventure in one of Iceland’s most remote corners, request to book this trip! I guarantee a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    We were very satisfied with the whole experience. Our guide Matteo was very experienced and taught us a lot during the short trip. He looked after us and made sure that we felt secure even on the most dangerous stages of the ascent and descent. I cannot express enough how happy we were with Matteo\'s support and guidance. He was very professional during the whole trip and also very jovial and kept us a good company. His knowledge of the mountains and mountaineering is exceptional and I wouldn\'t hesitate to recommend him to anyone wishing to climb in the Alps.

    We were a bit unlucky with the weather, so we didn\'t summit. But given the conditions, I think we did the best we could, we\'ve scaled some smaller peaks and practiced our spline skills. Matteo is great guide, highly recommend.
