World-Renowned Backcountry Skiing in North Iceland

Deservingly, Troll peninsula, or Tröllaskagi, in North Iceland has become world-renowned for its backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering. The region’s uniqueness is attributed to the long runs it offers from mountain tops to the ocean. The cherry on top is that you will find good snowpack lasting well into spring. Your days will be spent touring the mountains of the area.  The possibilities for skiing here are endless, and every day there are new summits, valleys and open slopes for our ski touring adventure. You can expect moderate difficulty each day, with 800 m (2630 ft) ascents, but we offer additional ski touring possibilities for those who like more skiing. After a fun-filled day of skiing, each night you will unwind at the Sigló, a new and comfortable traditional style hotel situated right by the fisherman’s marina in the town of Siglufjörður. The hotel’s fabulous restaurant, outdoor hot tub and surrounding landscape, make it the perfect place to rest and possibly spot the Northern Lights. Don’t miss out on some of the best ski touring in Iceland!

Customer Reviews

I wouldn’t change anything about my tour. It was really perfect...Ivar, our guide, was one of the best because he really knows the area and the region really well, and he explained and it was really one of the best ski trips I have ever had.
