Description

Drop into the thrilling runs and ski right down to the coast on an eight-day program on the Troll Peninsula! This guided ski touring week will explore the vast beauty of Iceland’s Arctic features, taking you from fjord and mountain to serene village for an ultimate trip in the heart of a one-of-a-kind wilderness!

Replete with glaciers, volcanoes, and everything in between, a week in Iceland is the epitome of adventure. Its northern coast is known for its mountainous terrain that caters to skiers, with long runs that can reach up to 1,500 meters of vertical. With upwards of about 100 mountains to discover on the Troll Peninsula, there is an endless amount of untouched snow. It is surrounded by the Arctic Ocean, so you can even ski right down to the coast.

Your program immerses you in this snowy paradise for a full Icelandic ski touring experience. I will pick you up from the airport and we will head along the scenic roads to your lodging in Dalvik. From there, we will spend the next week on the snow, utilizing our own private transportation vehicle to reach isolated areas with pockets of snow. The quality is immaculate, with corn snow and powder all across the Peninsula.

You can expect to cover up to and beyond 1,000 meters on our daily ski tours, depending on the chosen path and trail for the day. We will constantly be adapting our program to the needs and abilities of the group, taking advantage of terrain and weather conditions. Fresh powder has been known to fall late into the season, so we will keep our eyes peeled for the perfect pockets of snow. The overall elevation of the region makes skiing here comparable to skiing in the Pyrenees.

The trip will culminate in Reykjavik for a cultural jaunt into Iceland’s capital. It is a great way to wrap up an amazing week of skiing and to cap off the trip.

You should be a proficient skier capable of ski touring comfortably in diverse and challenging backcountry. This includes the mental fortitude to complete the program and a fitness level to match. I will ensure we have a safe, satisfying, and all around fun time in one of the world’s most amazing places.

Book this unbelievable ski touring week on the Troll Peninsula NOW and spend eight days in the unparalleled landscape of Iceland for a life-changing ski trip!

We can also switch gears and try the Landmannalaugar Trek on an eight day guided hiking program!

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!
