@astakarenh
Surfer, skier & environmentalist

She is fiercely dedicated to the mountains and waves of Iceland. Ásta was born in Reykjavik. Her true calling kept pulling her away from the city, leading her to the very tops of the Icelandic mountains and to all corners of the country’s shores.

Skiing In Iceland

Beautiful and unpredictable. Winds, glaciers and dramatic changes in temperatures shaped Icelandic Mountains. The most guaranteed snow conditions to fully take advantage of is to ski the mountains in the spring season, when there is a nice slush to play with and plenty of snow on the summits. We have been exploring and monitoring the conditions for years to assess the environments expertly. We will pass on that knowledge to you during this expedition.
