Day 2

Drive to Troll Peninsula

In the morning you will board the 4x4 vehicles and head north to the base camp: a chalet in the mountains among the fjords of the Troll peninsula.

Driving through the typical Icelandic landscapes, with their harsh and aggressive nature that always necessitates several stops to take pictures, is an experience in and of itself.

You will then spend the night in the chalet and prepare yourself for the next day.

Day 3 to 7

Tröllaskagi

During these days, you will travel directly on skis from the chalet and via brief four-wheel excursions in the Troll peninsula.

You can practice ski mountaineering every day while taking in the ocean view of uncommon and extraordinary landscapes.

Your guide will ensure your safety while training and will provide useful tips to help you improve your skills, but most importantly, he will introduce you to this spectacular territory.

At the end of the day, you'll get the chance to unwind in a warm bath in the chalet and rest before the next adventure.

Daniel - UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide

I am living the Mountain Life for over 2 decades now and still it won‘t get boring at all. 

I enjoy nearly all posibilities the mountains are offering. No matter if skiing in remote places, climbing big Walls or enjoying a beautiful Sunrise on high mountains. 

As a Father of 3 Kids i enjoy seeing them grow and making progress climbing and skiing. As well as for my clients i am happy to give them a Little help to evolve.

Iceland

Iceland is one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights!

This is the most thrilling option to avoid crowded slopes and ski in pristine, peaceful surroundings through ski tours.

Tröllaskagi, also known as the Troll Peninsula, is a ski mountaineering and backcountry skiing mecca in North Iceland. 

The region's uniqueness is attributed to the long runs it provides from mountain tops to the ocean and the cherry on top is that the snowpack will last well into spring.

Your days will be spent exploring the surrounding mountains since the skiing opportunities here are limitless and every day there are new summits, valleys and open slopes for our ski touring adventure.
