Iceland Ski Touring Programs

Iceland is a world class destination for ski touring, backcountry skiing and ski mountaineering. The centers of activity is the Troll Peninsula in northern Iceland with vertical descents of up to 1500m or almost 5000ft, thousands of peaks and slopes for all abilities with abundant snow fall make this a paradise for skiers and mountaineers. The season runs from the end of February through the end of May, and with the continual daylight of the Arctic Sun overhead and mild temperatures, snow conditions remain favorable with great corn skiing and the occasional powder dump well into June. The fact that Iceland is surrounded by the Arctic Ocean makes for incredible opportunities of skiing right down to the ocean on stable coastal snowpack but also adds the excitement of Arctic weather and conditions. Iceland is a true adventure skiing destination.

International Programs

Although the ski season in ''Niceland'' is long and plentiful ranging from late February through June we find that an "off season" can be a little boring. Our international ski trips make for a great way to extend the best season (skiing of course) of the year. Each year we embark on finding and exploring our dream destinations and we would love for you to join us. How about a pre or post season trip to Antarctica, Japan or South America. Watch the next ski movie premier and say "been there done that".
