Explore the spectacular Troll Peninsula in Iceland with Jökull, IFMGA certified mountain guide, on this guided splitboarding and ski touring week!
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 and ski touring 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 and ski touring 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?

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.
After each day of splitboarding and skiing, we will enjoy the rare pleasure of sitting in the local geothermal baths, or relaxing in the sauna followed by one delicious meal after another feasting on organic lamb, fish and game prepared by our gourmet chef.
Day 6 is our last splitboarding day, and of course I have saved the best for last!

I'm Iceland's first 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!
