DETAILS

Scandic Mountain Guides offers Ski Touring trips in Iceland from beginning of March until end of May every year. Our skiing area in Iceland, the Troll Peninsula, has endless options to offer for ski touring, where you can ski from the mountain peak all the way to the Arctic Ocean. In terms of ski touring, there are few places in the world with as many possibilities as the Troll Peninsula in Iceland. The area is vast and largely unexplored.

The terrain has a lot of different options, from steep couloirs to easy and moderate slopes. It is also possible to traverse over to the next fjords and ski down to the coast line or into the small valleys, where you will find untouched snow and probably make the first descent in that run.

Prepare for different skiing conditions; fresh powder skiing, skiing in the stable spring corn snow, which is perfect for steep and extreme skiing and more exposed lines than you normally find where avalanches are more likely. Our vertical drop is up to 1.500m or approximately 4.500 ft. in the unbelievable Arctic mountains.

At Scandic Ski touring Lodge the meals are not included, but in the Lodge is a kitchen where the group will prepare their own meals.

Ski touring in Iceland is the name of the game! Come and join us!
