The land of volcanoes and glaciers, Iceland has a unique energy created by lunar landscapes and surreal atmosphere. Our tour includes 6 days of ski mountaineering in the wild fiords of Troll Peninsula and other 3 days of in the enchanted territory of this beautiful island. We will visit volcanoes, geysers, majestic waterfalls, charming fishing villages, lava thermal spring and fairy-tale scenarios.
Surrounded by the glacial Arctic sea, the Troll Peninsula is a very wild area of Iceland and mountains have a peculiar geometry.
Ski mountaineering in Iceland means fairytale landscape, dreamlike atmospheres and descends along beautiful fiords whose name are unpronounceable.
Trip to Iceland is not only a ski tour trip: in addition to ski mountaineering activity, SnowLife arranges day trips with a four-wheel drive jeep to visit the majestic waterfalls of Fossholl and Gullfoss, the evocative lava area of Lake Myvatn and satellite craters, legendary Geysers, warm thermal springs and much more for a memorable adventure...It is not by chance if the tour is called "Magic Iceland"!
Given the particularity of the trip, we prefer working with small groups with just 5-6 people for each instructor rather than big groups. Our guides are freeride specialized ski and snowboardinstructors, they know Norwegian mountains perfectly as well as they can identify the best itineraries and they are legally entitled to take people off-piste, except for those itineraries where mountaineering equipment (ropes, ice axes and crampons) is compulsory.
Years of experience on the field allow us to arrange a flexible program by always having one or more backup plans in case of better weather conditions in other locations and quickly understanding the needs of the group.
The trips are not technically difficult. However, a good competence of the techniques of ascent and descent together with by a good physical preparation is required. The ground in Norway is generally safe but it is always better to pay the utmost attention: safety is Snow Life first priority, for this reason, avalanche equipment is compulsory.
