Explore the wild peaks of the Troll Peninsula on ski touring

Tales of elves and trolls abound in this mountainous region located on the Arctic Circle. Legend has it that Iceland’s last troll was slaughtered in a cave in the mountains of this peninsula.
The snow cover is ideal for ski touring from mid-March to early June. During our trip, we will explore the Icelandic fjords and high peaks with unpronounceable names!

The terrain is very varied, offering all skiers, whatever their level, the opportunity to make the most of their abilities. The choice of itineraries is infinite, a lifetime would not be enough to explore everything. After each day of skiing, we will relax and chat in one of the many geothermal baths with the local farmers and fishermen for whom bathing is sacred!
