Day 1: Let's head North
The journey from Reykjavik to Akureyri is the beginning of your adventure. On a cloudless day the 1 hour flight (not included) allows you to take in spectacular scenery of glorious mountain tops and hidden valleys. Upon arrival in Akureyri our team will be waiting to greet you and bring you to the lodge in Olafsfjordur town. After check-in you'll have a short meeting with other skiers and our guides, a delicious welcome dinner, and a relaxed evening.
Day 2: Ready, Stretch, Ski!
After a hearty breakfast and a short briefing your heli-skiing adventure begins. Spend the day heli-skiing and enjoying the breathtaking views of the Troll Peninsula. Lunch is served in the mountains and after your return to the lodge you'll enjoy an après ski beer and a gourmet meal in good company.
Day 3: Mountain and Maritime Heroes
Spend the day riding the fresh untracked powder and enjoying the remote and spectacular landscapes.
After a great day of heli-skiing we head out on the Atlantic Ocean hunting and fishing for duck, guillemot, cod, haddock, whiting, red fish, wolf fish, dab, rough dab, plaice, and halibut if lucky. In the evening the chef will prepare a delicious dinner out of what we bring home.
Day 4: Life is in the Mountain Peaks
After a hearty breakfast get ready for the day´s excursion. Feel the throbbing power of the chopper as you climb aboard and sense the unbridled freedom when standing alone on the mountain peak. This is life at its very best. And you´re living it!
At the end of the day we return to the lodge for an aprés ski drink, dinner and a relaxing soak in the hot tub.
Day 5: Departure
All good things must come to an end. On the last day of your adventure you´ll get to enjoy the mountains for a few hours until your guide declares the last run of the day, which will be the homerun all the way to the lodge. Before saying goodbye to your guides and newfound friends, a last dip in the hot tub is recommended!
You'll then be driven back to Akureyri where your flight to Reykjavik awaits.(Flight not included)*
