Mar, Apr, May
All the way down to the ocean, we’ll descend through wide open slopes, explore spectacular valleys and enjoy the magnificent views of the Troll Peninsula. Join me on this guided splitboarding week and discover one of the most amazing mountain scenarios in Iceland!
The Troll Peninsula offers a large variety of slopes and mountains for all levels and guarantees a unique winter adventure. Additionally,in the late season, you will be able to explore under the rays of the midnight sun. And, if you come earlier, we will also be able to watch the magical northern lights!
Regarding our accommodation, we’ll stay at the finest ski touring lodge in Iceland, Karlsá Lodge, near the village of Dalvik. It’s located in the spectacular East coast of the Troll Peninsula, overlooking the Gold Coast of the Hidden Land on one side and the Eyja Ford on the other. Furthermore, it has its own sauna, an ocean view hot tub and delicious local gourmet cuisine prepared by a fantastic in-house chef. After a long day of splitboarding, the Karlsá Lodge will be the ideal place to rest and relax.
Additionally, this splitboarding guided week will also be a unique opportunity for participants to discover Iceland’s beautiful culture. Superb splitboarding, light, light, light, luxury rest and culture, what more could anyone want?

In the late afternoon, we will meet in Akureyri, the capital of northern Iceland. A 40 min transfer will take us to Karlsá Lodge, our base for the next days, for a meet and greet. Finally, we will enjoy a delicious welcome dinner and go over the week’s agenda.
This is our first splitboarding day, above Karlsá Lodge.
First, we’ll spend the morning on detailed avalanche transceiver and avalanche rescue training. Then, we’ll go out to tackle our first peak of many. On average, our daily vertical ranges from 1000 to 2000 meters, depending on the group.
The night here is no excuse to stop, as the midnight sun will accompany us. So we can keep on riding until you wish so.
Today we’ll explore the mountains located above the small fishing village of Dalvik.
We will enjoy the rare pleasure of sitting in the local geothermal baths, with the possibility of admiring our tracks on the slopes of the surrounding peaks. Dalvik is home of some of Iceland’s most accomplished skiers and splitboarders, and it’s no wonder considering the terrain they grew up in.
Gljúfurárjökull glacier area has one of the best wide open splitboarding slopes to be found on the Troll Peninsula.
It’s located at the center of the region and we will enjoy amazing views of a large portion of the peninsula. You get the real feeling of being in the middle of the arctic here, with glaciers and snow covered peaks surrounding you wherever you look.
I know the Troll Peninsula by heart so I will take you to “secret cirques”, places that splitboarders have never seen before. In each trip, I take participants to different and new places. You will set your tracks down a slope that no one has ever skied down before.
This is our last splitboarding day, and of course I have saved the best for last! Finally, after another great splitboarding day we will say goodbye.

I'm Iceland's first and only IFMGA internationally certified mountain guide. I'm a member of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides ACMG with whom I finished my certification. I have climbed and skied extensively all over the world, and I lived and worked in both the European Alps and the mountains of Western Canada.
I have brought this wealth of diverse experiences to Iceland and the Arctic North where I have to my name over a hundred first ascents and descents in Iceland and Greenland.
My love of the mountains grew from an early age working as a shepherd on my grandparent's farm on the Troll Peninsula in Northern Iceland. Or maybe it had something to do with my name, which in English would translate directly to Glacier Mountain man.
If you want to discover this beautiful country, please get in touch with me and let's leave together for incredible adventure!

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
