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

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 was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

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

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
