Description

The Troll Peninsula is a unique ski touring destination in Northern Iceland, offering a wide variety of slopes for all level of skiers and for all tastes. Join me for one or more days and discover a stunning location with amazing terrain and breathtaking landscapes.

During these days, you will be able to enjoy ski runs up to 1300m all the way down to the ocean! The mountains here are the perfect combination of steep faces and couloirs and wide and open low angled glacier runs.

The peaks and valleys of the Troll Peninsula offer endless ski touring possibilities. Besides, if you come late in the season, you will be able to ski at midnight under the rays of the midnight sun. If you come earlier, you will have the chance to watch the magical northern lights!

Additional services such as accommodation, meals and transportation can be added to the program. If you decide to stay for several days, our base will be the fantastic Karlsá Lodge, the best ski touring base in the country. After an intense skiing day we have the possibility of relaxing in one of the many geothermal baths in the area, or in the sauna or hot tub at the lodge, overlooking the Arctic Ocean.

The Karlsá Lodge is located on the spectacular East coast, in the middle of the best ski terrain in the Troll Peninsula. It is the only “ski in-ski out” lodge on the Peninsula. Not only will we enjoy amazing ski tours, but we will also taste delicious local dishes made by the in-house chef with fresh local ingredients.

I know these mountains like the back of my hand and I will take you to explore all the secret spots that only locals know. So what are you waiting for? Send me a request and book your trip! Come discover this hidden ski touring gem in Iceland! 

If you have more time available, check my 5-day ski touring trip or the ski touring trip from a sailboat, both in the Troll Peninsula as well.

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!
