Iceland Heli-Skiing Adventure

This once in a lifetime heli-skiing adventure takes you to a world-class skiing area in North Iceland where hundreds of slopes are waiting for their first descents!

Spend the days enjoying the spectacular back mountain terrains close to the towns of Olafsjordur and Dalvik but as night falls, relax in the hot tub, enjoy delicious dinners created from the freshest local produce, and recount stories of the day's adventures.

Each day the terrain selection is carefully determined by the guides and is based on avalanche assessment, weather, and the skiing ability of the group. Your safety is our number one priority.

Accommodation is in a cabin with two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and a jacuzzi. The location gives you plenty of local pursuits if you´d like to add something extra to your holiday!

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)*

*Please note that it's possible to extend your stay in North Iceland
