Discover luxury ski hotels and lodges in Troll Peninsula, Iceland

Keep a look out for hidden folk and magical beings in Northern Iceland’s Troll Peninsula (Tröllaskagi), which lies between the fjords of Skagafjörður and Eyjafjorður; its dramatic landscape is sprinkled liberally with mossy meadows, remote farmhouses and natural hot springs. It’s home to the country’s most northerly town Siglufjörður, which sits at the foot of steep mountains; visit in the summer to hike the trails that surround this remote fishing port. For a hit of history, stop by the petite Emigration Centre museum in 16th-century trading port town Hofsós. The true behemoths in this mystical spot are its vertiginous peaks; head here for hiking, skiing, frigid surfing, whale-watching, under the soft glow of the midnight sun in the summer.
