Ski Touring in Akureyri, Iceland

Iceland

Welcome to the land of the Vikings. Imagine yourself in an environment opposite to the Alps within half a day. Hardly any infrastructure, rough terrain, steep cliffs rising from the sea and untouched nature. Iceland is three times the size of the Netherlands and has fewer inhabitants than the municipality of Utrecht.

Ski touring and split boarding from Akureyri

Akureyri is the base for the trip. From this cozy village we are within an hour at the most beautiful places of the Troll Peninsula. Far away from civilization and crowds. This area lies just below the Arctic Circle and is largely uninhabited. You will find large bowls and steep couloirs that reach the coastline. With our own vans at our disposal, we look for a new tour every day. Depending on the wishes, the weather and the snow conditions.

Skiing and snowboarding on the Troll Peninsula

In April it is light early in Iceland and dark late. This gives us the opportunity to be flexible with the time schedule of the day. Touring until 10pm in the evening is no exception. Due to the short nights, the temperature differences are minimal. As a result, the snow conditions are much more constant than in the Alps. On clear nights you even have a chance to see the Northern Lights.

Had great days in Stubai again with Michiel in Gijs-Jan

For the 4th consecutive time we had a fun and educational off-piste training in November. The guys do their job perfectly. Good organization, they make it easy for you by bringing equipment with you, even skis this time (and very nice one too). The gentlemen are not only very professional, but also pleasant company! 😉 Highly recommended.
