Ski Touring & Split Boarding in Iceland | Epique - Mountain Adventures

Tour Skiing in Isafjordur, Iceland

Iceland

Are you looking for a unique location for ski touring or splitboarding? Go on a tour in Iceland with Epique! Iceland is three times the size of the Netherlands and has fewer inhabitants than the municipality of Utrecht. From Amsterdam it is a half day travel to Isafjordur, a small fishing town in the northwest of Iceland. You immediately imagine yourself in a completely different world. In contrast to the Netherlands, almost nothing is decorated by people. Here nature reigns. The spectacular surroundings, abundance of wildlife and beautiful descents combine to create a special experience.

Ski tour or split boarding from Isafjordur

For six days we will explore the western fjords from Isafjordur. We have a van at our disposal with which we drive daily to the foot of a new tour. Depending on the wishes of the group, the weather and snow conditions, we discuss the next tour location daily. 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. All overnight stays include breakfast. Depending on the tour location, we look for a nice restaurant in the area every day. The guide knows the area, the best restaurants and the nicest cafes.

Skiing and snowboarding on Hornstrandir

As an extra program we can tour the Hornstrandir nature reserve for a day. In winter, this piece of no man’s land is only accessible by boat. From the boat we can view the steep walls, couloirs and bowls and plan for 2 or 3 short climbs with challenging descents.

Looking for the ultimate tour ski or splitboard experience? We would love to hear from you.
