Description

Iceland is a true natural paradise! It offers hundreds of square kilometers of complete emptiness and total stillness. Moreover, the mountains in the Tröllaskagi peninsula (Troll Peninsula) in the north of the island are in no way inferior to those in the Alps. Join me on this amazing ski touring program in Iceland!

Both skiers and snowboarders will get their money’s worth. This ski touring program in Iceland is an experience you can’t miss out on!

Our days will usually start at sea level. Depending on the day, we’ll ascend from 800 to 1250 meters. Afterwards, descents will bring us back to the deep blue fjords of the Arctic Ocean.

The trip includes 4 days of ski touring, one day of ski touring on the completely wild northeastern tip of Eyjafjörður and a day of sightseeing. We’ll take a boat to reach Eyjafjörður!

We will be staying in a cozy self-catering cottage by the sea. The house is superbly equipped. It has a fully equipped kitchen, a large dining room, a living room and central heating. Towels and linens are provided. And there is also a small sauna and a hot tub!

This ski touring program in Iceland is an experience that every ski tourer should have at least once in their lifetimes. So join me on this incredible trip and discover everything this area has to offer. You won’t regret it!

About the guide

My passion for nature and the mountains led me to become a mountain guide. I started my career as a pilot and, for a while, dedicated my life to university. However, over the years, my love for the mountains increased.

Since then, I have been working as a mountain guide, taking my clients on great ski and climbing adventures. I guide around my country and also around Europe: Spain, Italy, France, England, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Norway. I sometimes also go to Chile, Canada, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan and Turkey.

As an IFMGA certified mountain guide, it is a pleasure for me to guide people from all over the world to these amazing destinations. My main objective is to have you enjoy a great time in the mountains while keeping you safe.

I invite you to have a look at the mountain programs and tours I propose. In the case you want to join one of them and if I'm not available, you'll be going with Alex or Rudi, IFMGA certified guides, friends of mine.

Rudi is an experienced mountaineer with a great deal of knowledge about the area and trails available. He coordinated closely with me to determine my skill level and objective for the hike. It was an absolutely terrific day.

Explore-Share took advantage of my inexperience. I had asked for a beginner level trip, instead, they recommended me a rather advanced trip. Neither Explore-Share nor the guide were forthcoming with information until the very last moment. The guide sold my participation to another outfit about a week before the trip. Neither Explore-Share neither the guide are trustworthy and can be relied upon in making arrangements.

Rudi was awesome. Very knowledgable and gave me a lot of climbing pointers for via ferrata. Also, super helpful with recommending other great sites in Austria and Germany. I hope to climb with him again when I’m back in central Europe.

I recently climbed the Zugspitze with you and I really enjoyed it. The guide was through Rudi who at the time could not climb but got me another guide, Toni from Garmisch. He was excellent and I really enjoyed the day. I would like to say a big thanks to Rudi and Toni and Lupe.

I loved my excursion! Rudi is a great guide who has been guiding for over a decade and has a lot of experience--yet was incredibly patient with me as more of a novice climber. For purposes of this tour, Rudi is also from the area and had a lot of local insights. Thanks for the great experience, Rudi and explore-share :-)

Hi Everyone I don't have much experience but I thought it was a great experience. The weather let us down a bit but everything else was first class in particular our guide. That, however, was Gudrun Schweikert not Rudi because he injured his knee. She was absolutely terrific. I can only highly recommend her. Kind regards; Uwe

Guide was Reini. He guided us at just the perfect speed to be back in 5 hours at the alpspitzbahn top station. Highly recommended. Great experience - first via ferrata!

Was a great tour! We did Geierwand Klettersteig instead of Alpspitze due to snowy conditions, and guide was Moritz Filger.

Rudi is a fantastic guide. He speaks fluent English! He is interested in who you are, he motivates you in a relax way and gives you a helping hand. He was a great instructor for a group of women. Rudi thinks about safety as well. I will hire him the next time!
