Description

The Troll Peninsula in Iceland is an amazing world class ski touring destination. On this 3-day trip, you will get the chance to explore its  varied terrain and slopes, with runs all the way down to the ocean!

We could spend a lifetime exploring the peaks and valleys of this beautiful region. There is something for everyone in the Troll Peninsula, wether you want to let yourself loose on wide open slopes or you are looking for steep couloirs. These mountains offer options for all level of skiers.

If you come late in the season, you will enjoy the unique possibility of skiing in the rays of the midnight sun, whereas if you come earlier in the season, you will watch the spectacular northern lights!

During this 3-day ski tour, we will stay at the comfortable and luxurious Karlsá Lodge, near the village of Dalvik. It's definitely the best ski touring lodge in the Peninsula. It is  located in the East coast, overlooking the Gold Coast of the Hidden Land on one side and the Eyja Ford on the other.

The Karlsá Lodge has a sauna and an ocean view hot tub, ideal for a relaxing time after a long skiing day.  You will also get to taste delicious gourmet cuisine every day, prepared by the in-house chef, with fresh local products. Also, we can soak our body in some of the many fantastic geothermal baths in the area.

I know the Troll Peninsula like the back of my hand, so I will make sure you enjoy the best and safe ski touring experience. Also, I know the best spots for the most incredible ski runs, and I will take you up there!

So are you in for this unique ski touring adventure? Book your trip and we will start planning this exciting ski touring adventure in the Troll Peninsula!  You can also take a look at all the other ski touring trips I also guide in Iceland.

About the guide

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 was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
