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!

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 !"
