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!

About the guide

guide profile img

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!
