Ski touring in Iceland is very unique; the terrain is raw and rugged and the people are incredibly welcoming. There are 130 volcanoes in Iceland, which amounts to more potential ski lines than you could tackle in a lifetime. Reykjavik and the Blue Lagoon get most of the hype, but in the north, you’ll find vast terrain and exceptional conditions. One of the north’s best gems is the Troll Peninsula, which offers 1000-meter lines that run right to the ocean’s edge.

Long, long days and wild terrain make Iceland a top ski touring destination

Northern lights and endless days

The terrain is large, wild and without trees and there are plenty of hot thermal pools to hang out in after the day is done. Powder skiing can be found in the months of March and April, which coincides with more northern lights. May through June is when the endless day skiing can happen. If bad weather comes through, just wait it out and ski at 10 pm. The almost endless alpenglow makes for such a beautiful time in the mountains.
