A Letter From Your Guide

Steve Banks, Director of Mountain Guide Operations

Skiing in Iceland is an unforgettable experience. Strap on your skins and set out on an unforgettable ski tour straight from the lodge door. Limitless terrain ignites new exploration in even the most seasoned of skiers. You’ll earn your turns, but believe us, there’s no feeling like ripping off your skins and descending down to the ocean.

What will your trip look like?

Ski touring in Iceland allows guests who like a challenge by combining a killer workout with Iceland’s raw, remote landscape. Our guides can choose the best day to ski given the weather and snow. Just strap on your skins and head out the front door. Earn your turns, then indulge in a massage, hot tub session or relaxing float in the i-Sopod tanks back home.

Day 1

Start your ski tour directly from Deplar Farm. Today, you’ll warm up your climbing legs with a mellow tour of the surrounding valley.

Day 2

The ocean views that run to the north are screen-saver worthy. Spend the day zig-zagging through fjords and valleys with constant views of the cobalt-blue North Atlantic Ocean.

Day 3

Head south. Today you dive deep into the heart of the Troll Peninsula and combine snowmobiling and ski touring. The mountains here are slightly taller and sprinkled with pocket glaciers that keep the snow cold and fresh. You won’t see any signs of civilization, just untouched runs.

Day 4

Earn your turns on a morning tour along the coastal Troll Peninsula before flying home.
