Although I deeply love oceans, deserts, and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty.

Discover the country of fire and ice on an extraordinary adventure, a country that carves through some of the most stunning volcanic scenery on the planet.
The unique geologic history has created an environment that is truly one of the most impressive we have seen. Rising mountains that reach the fjords on the Troll Peninsula, Iceland is filled with geothermal vents below the earth crust which form numerous hot springs throughout the country. Being in the North of Iceland you are near the Arctic Circle which can allow spectacular views of the Aurora Borealis in the period of October to April.
In the summer months the days are long which allows more time to adventure and explore these rough terrains, hiking through the stunning Svarfaðardalur Nature Reserve, sea kayaking in search of whales, fishing for Atlantic salmon and arctic char or spend the morning heli-skiing and surfing in the afternoon. Explore a volcano which erupted 4000 years ago for his last time and descend to its magma chamber 200 meters – it’s still a mystery how the magma disappeared.
When you think about it, the Celtic Monks were right – Iceland remains truly one of the most visually stunning countries in the world. One of the best places on earth to see the Northern Lights extensive with lava fields and smooth hills carved out by rivers and old whaling villages like Husavik. This is a destiny that will unveil your true adventurer side.
The remote Troll Peninsula (Tröllaskagi) is one of the most extraordinary mountain scenarios in northern Iceland, a true paradise for the outdoor enthusiasts, It is located between the fjord of Skagafjörður and the fjord of Eyjafjorður. The peninsula is mountainous with several peaks reaching over 1200 meters above sea level, some over 1400 meters, the tallest one is Kerling (1538 meters). It is the part of Iceland with the highest elevation outside the central highlands. We really encourage to explore the area as much as you can with a variety of unforgettable guided adventures.
