Ski Touring

Scandic Mountain Guides offers Ski Touring trips in Iceland from March 6th until May 24th 2018. 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 skiing slopes are truly unique, with a panorama view of amazing slopes waiting for their first descents.

During winter you can ski until dark and watch the majestic northern lights dance in the sky. In spring, there is nothing like skiing down slopes in between the towering peaks, ending the ride where the shoreline meets the North Atlantic.

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 propably 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.

After a great day in the mountains, it is possible to bathe in Iceland´s nicest hot natural baths in an unforgettable environment or go to the great swimming pools that are located close to our Lodge. It is also possible to go on our private boat after the ski tour, where we will try to find some whales to watch swimming around. We will even try sea angling to catch some cod. Ski touring in Iceland is the name of the game! Come and join us!

Ski Touring Special

Scandic Mountain Guides offers Ski Touring trips in Iceland from March 6th until May 24th 2018. Our Ski Touring Special program is made for skiers who want quality skiing with the help of our professional guides in the best ski touring area in Iceland and exclusive accommodation, but still keeping the budget as low as possible. We provide the lodge, the guide and transportation. You take care of the rest. This program is made for a group of 5-7 persons.

Heli-Assisted Ski Touring

The best of both worlds: Ski touring with Helicopter support each day!

Scandic Mountain Guides offers Heli-Assisted Ski Touring trips in Iceland from March 6th until May 24th 2018.

Whether you are skiing from the mountain tops all the way down to the ocean or enjoying skiing in different valleys between the high mountains inland, each day is a new experience! The great advantage about this package is the flexibility and use of the helicopter to access the best skiing areas. Another great addition is the option to add extra heli drops at the end of the day when the helicopter comes back to retrieve the group.

Sailboat Ski Touring

The sailboat (Schooner) will be waiting for you at Ólafsfjörður‘s harbour, where our crew will welcome the group on board. The group will head out to sea and be on a constant move between the beautiful fjords in the Troll Peninsula during the upcoming days. The group will stay and dine on the boat and hike up different slopes everyday.

Each tour lasts five days. This private sailboat and ski touring package requires and is operated with groups of four to eight people, including an exclusive use of the sailboat.
