Late in the afternoon we meet at Akureyri, northern Iceland’s capital. Then a 45 min ride takes us to the Country Lodge. There we will have a meet and greet. We will talk about the plans for the following days and enjoy a delicious welcome dinner.
Today is the first skiing day. We dedicate the morning to avalanche rescue and avalanche transceiver training. Then we tackle our first peak. On average, the altitude change will be around 1000-1800 m each day, but this depends on the group. We can always keep going since the arrival of the night is not a reason to stop. The midnight sun accompanies us, touching the ocean just to rise back again.
Today we ski the peaks that are above Dalvik, a small fishing village. Being here will allow us to enjoy the geothermal baths while admiring the traces we left on the surrounding slopes.
The day of discovering the hidden corners has arrived. I know the Troll Peninsula as the back of my hand, so I will take you to a “secret cirque”. It’s there just for us, we won’t find anyone else! In each trip I take clients to different places, often ones where even I have never been before.
Again an amazing ski touring day, trust me, I saved the best for last! You will have to come here in order to discover what I’m talking about. In the end of the day we will say goodbye.

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.
