Iceland Ski Touring - The Troll Peninsula

Backcountry and Heli Ski Trip with IFMGA Guide Mark Synnott from April 21-28, 2018.

Iceland provides an amazing spring skiing experience with an extremely “remote” mountain feeling full of big faces and steep 2500-3000′ couloirs! The days are long (20+ hrs) and the snow pack is reasonably stable allowing for big ski tours. There are spectacular views of the Arctic Ocean, fjords, and alpine terrain. Best of all, it’s a short (5 hr) and affordable flight from Boston.

Small group to be guided by:

  • IFMGA guide Mark Synnott
  • Al Mandell (AIARE Level 3, Level 1 & 2 Course Leader, AMGA Apprentice Ski Guide)
  • Hampton Synnott

April 21-28, 2018 (depart from Boston on April 20 for April 21 arrival in Reykjavik).

$3300 including 7 nights lodging, all breakfasts/dinners (guests are responsible for their lunches), all transfers from Akureyri airport (easy flights from Reykjavik) , ski guiding, and 4×4 van for remote access/rendezvous points.

Private hi-end home with easy access to the goods, yet close to town for restaurants and an evening pint of Einstok Olgero, the local microbrew!
