Scandic Mountain Guides

Scandic Mountain Guides specializes in ski touring trips during the winter time and hiking tours in the summer time. We are an Icelandic company, located in the valley of Ólafsfjörður fjord in the northern part of Iceland. Tröllaskagi (The Troll Peninsula) is our main skiing and hiking area. It is a world class skiing area with thousands of slopes waiting for their first descents. In the summer time there are infinite possibilities to hike around the peninsula and to places, where few people have ever been before.

The founders of Scandic Mountain Guides, Jóhann H. Hafstein and Björgvin Björgvinsson, are both former alpine ski racers and members of the Icelandic Olympic team. In recent years they have mainly engaged in backcountry skiing and freeriding during the winter and hiking tours in the summer time. Jóhann and Björgvin have also been running another company called Viking Heliskiing for several years.

Scandic Mountain Guides have together with Viking Heliskiing developed a big group of the most talented staff on the market that will take care of you the whole time you are with us. We have a very powerful team of guides, ranging from former profesional skiers to mountain guides with UIAGM/IFMGA certification and up to 35 years of experience. Our team covers it all. The guides will choose the best slopes for you with your safety as first priority.

The Troll Peninsula, our main area, has a variable terrain to offer and choices that should fit all types of skiers and hikers. The towering mountains surrounded by the Arctic Ocean are a dream come true for every skier. The co-operation with Viking Heliskiing gives our guests the opportunity to do heli assisted ski touring. The helicopter can bring you to mountains you would normally not be able to visit, and pick you up in the end of the day. Scandic Mountain Guides gives you a head start to other skiers.

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
