Heli-Ski the Troll Peninsula

Unearth the beauty of the land of ice and fire. A place where vast snow plains meet the wild arctic sea and the land is dotted with looming volcanos and flowing glaciers. The Tröllaskagi Peninsula lies to the west of Eyjafjorour fjord, a mountainous region with several peaks reaching over 1,000 meters above sea level.

Start your journey surrounded by crisp blankets of snow as you board your helicopter with the smell of the sea filling the air. Heading high into the volcanic hills your expert guide will find the first-class drop-off points to set off from. With a vast terrain that covers more than 4000 square kilometres of breathtaking Arctic mountains from extreme couloirs or wide-open glaciers. Your guide will cater to your personal abilities and desires to make sure you have the ultimate heli-skiing experience.

Northern Iceland’s sweeping mountains provide world-class terrain in one of the most remote and sparsely populated places on the planet. Relish the novelty of untouched slopes with steep decants that cry out for fresh tracks. The area sees some of the highest average snowfall on the planet, making it a dream spot for skiers and boarders alike. With endless terrain to explore your helicopter will be on standby to give you unrivalled and instant access to world-class runs. Starting each descent atop spectacular peaks and gliding through fresh powder right to the seashore.

Nordic horses & whale-watching

For a day off your feet, explore the area on a traditional Nordic horse. Discover sweeping valleys, striking fjords, and glacial rivers far from civilisation. Spend a day out to sea in search of ocean giants in the otherworldly landscape of Eyjafjordur, a prime spot for whales and orcas. With the lengthy days provided by the high latitude, finish dinner and set off on a guided mountaineering expedition, the landscape flecked with bronze during an extended midnight sun golden hour.

When it’s time to wind down, step into the geothermal pool and gaze out at the landscape with an aperitif. Your private chef will cook up a Nordic culinary adventure featuring the country’s flavoursome fish or a juicy leg of lamb paired with something delicious from the wine cellar.

Relax before a crackling fireplace afterwards, reflecting on the adventures of the day as the Northern Lights begin to flicker above the nearest peak.
