Description

Have you ever been to the Troll Peninsula? If you love splitboarding and want to discover a magical area, this trip is ideal for you!

Located in northern Iceland, Troll Peninsula is a beautiful place with endless possibilities to enjoy different kinds of snow activities.

On this program, I invite you to enjoy splitboarding through this area’s mountains and valleys for 5 days. We’ll start our program in Akureyri and have the pleasure to discover untouched terrain during the day. Then, when night comes, the midnight sun will allow us to keep having fun. After each splitboarding day, we’ll get to relax in a thermal bath. As for the accommodation, we’ll spend our nights in the Karlsá Lodge, where we’ll be able to taste delicious local meals. At the bottom of the page, you can find a more detailed description of the activities.

Please, consider that you should have some prior skiing or splitboarding experience as well as a good fitness level to join this program. Take into account that we’ll face an elevation gain of around 1,000 to 1,800 meters.

So, would you like to enjoy a thrilling splitboarding adventure in Iceland? Then get in touch with me by sending your request. I will be happy to guide you on this unique experience!

I love Iceland and I like to lead many different programs in this area. Take a look at this splitboarding trip in Kviar.

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!

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
