From the mountains to the sea

An exciting Backcountry Access ski touring trip to Iceland.

North Iceland is an absolute paradise for ski touring. Perfect spring snow, long daylight hours and stunning skiing above the sea. The Troll Peninsular, in the north of Iceland is an off-piste skiers dream with mountains cascading into the sea along with larger mountains further inland.

It may be possible to have heli assisted touring to get into the highlands on one or two days (optional at extra cost), or even to ski from the lift system in Akureyri (optional at extra cost), but the real joy is to ski from the summits to the beach on great snow with amazing views over the Arctic Ocean.

 

This adventure is for:
Experienced off piste skiers: levels 5 and above

Skiers with a good level of fitness to skin and ski all day long for 6 days. Ascents can last up to 4-5 hours but as always the more you work the greater the accomplishment, the greater the rewards.
