7 Day Ski Touring: South and West coast

7 Day Ski Touring: South and West coast

We are proud to introduce a new area of Iceland that is perfect for ski touring and splitboarding. You could call it "volcano hopping" as we will go from one volcano to another. In seven days full of ski touring, glaciers, ocean views, waterfalls, good food, hopefully Northern lights and much more you will make unforgetable memories. We travel by super trucks, first to a mountain hut of Tindfjöll and later we move to the comfort of an old farmhouse at Snaefellsness peninsula.

Day one

We depart Reykjavik in the morning after we have made sure that we have everything we need for week. We head East along the Ring road, until we reach the town of Hvolsvöllur. There we meet up with our mountain transfer, a modified super truck, to take us up to the mountains.

After our accent up the mighty Tindfjöll (Peak mountains), we reach our home for the next days, a small mountain hut. We do some avalanche safety briefing, go for a short run and scope put objectives for the next days.

Day Two

Skiing touring in the Tindfjöll.

Day Three

Skiing touring in the Tindfjöll.

Day Four

Today we pack up and ski down to snow line where our pick-up waits.

After coming down from the Tindfjöll, we take a dip in local pool, eat good lunch and make a stop at local beer brewery before we hit the road again. Our destination is the Oxl guesthouse farm at the Snaefellsness peninsula.

Day Five

Ski touring in the Snaefellsness peninsula.

Day Six

Ski touring the mighty Snaefellsnesjökull or the snowy mountain peninsula glacier. The place offers pretty amazing views with the view of the ocean 270° and the power of the area helps us to reach the top.

Day Seven

Before we head back to Reykjavík, we go for a short good-bye ski tour.
