Day 2: Avalanche training- Splitboarding

This is our first splitboarding day, above Karlsá Lodge.

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.

Day 3 to 5: Splitboarding and Ski Touring

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: Last Day of Ski and Splitboarding and Departure

Day 6 is our last splitboarding day, and of course I have saved the best for last!

About the guide: Jökull

Mountain Guide

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!
