Ski touring week on the Troll Peninsula, Iceland (8 days)

Join IFMGA-certified guide Roger in the northern beauty of Iceland and spend over a week in the fjord-filled wonder of the Troll Peninsula on an epic ski touring program, immersed in the rugged terrain and enchanting culture of a unique and evocative landscape.


8 Days

Mar, Apr




  • Take eight days to dig into the snow of Iceland for a thorough ski extravaganza.
  • Take advantage of the Midnight Sun and Northern Lights to enhance your trip.
  • Admire the northern coast of Iceland and the majestic scenery of Trollaskagi.


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!

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!

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!!!
