Ski touring in Iceland is unlike any other place on Earth. Imagine skiing steep mountain terrain overlooking the ocean, experiencing the culture of a world-class ski and mountaineering destination and connecting with likeminded people as you escape from the daily grind. A quiet country guesthouse on the Troll Peninsula offers an incredible backdrop for this backcountry retreat, with easy access to a wide variety of terrain for every level of skier. Peaks, couloirs and wide open bowls are, quite literally, at your doorstep in this perfectly situated mountain oasis.
We will be based out of the comfortable country guesthouse Skeid, and start each day with a sunny yoga practice and a healthy breakfast: fuel for the body and soul. We spend each day touring the region on skis, from ocean shore to mountaintop – the possibilities are endless. After skiing, we nourish ourselves once again, in the form of yoga, delicious shared meals and a soak in one of the region’s many geothermal pools as the midnight sun shines on.
What makes this trip special?
This is a unique ski tour in an idyllic setting; this retreat is about getting inspired and share it with other mountain people alike. Tune into yourself and get fully immersed with the Icelandic landscape and culture, where mountains meet the ocean just below the arctic circle. This is more than just a ski trip, its combining a holistic wellness approach with the backcountry experience and using the unique Icelandic nature as inspiration.
