Additional options include heli-assisted touring to help access more remote terrain.

"Iceland is an absolute paradise for ski touring," Director of Snoworks Ski Courses, Phil Smith, says.

"Perfect spring snow, long daylight hours and stunning skiing above the sea.

"The Troll Peninsular, in the north of Iceland is an off-piste skiers dream with mountains cascading into the sea along with larger mountains further inland," Phil reports.
