In the main Lodge you will enjoy gourmet meals prepared by our talented chef, where the focus is on fresh Icelandic ingredients, such as goose, lamb and arctic char. After an active day in the mountains it is ideal to sit down at the bar in the main lodge and unwind with a glass of wine or a pint of the Icelandic Viking beer and watch our chef prepare the dinner.

The challenge of heli-skiing

You'll be in the hands of a powerful team of skillful and highly experienced ski guides, specialized in challenging skiing conditions. If you want to ski comfortably down big mountain routes – we do that. If you want to ski steep - we ski steep. If you want to ski extremely steep - we ski extremely steep! In any case, they will make sure not to let skiers go in over their heads, as your safety is their priority.

Travelers need to be aware of the risks associated with wilderness activities and assume all such risks, as well as the possibility of personal injury, death, property damage or loss resulting therefrom. A 'Wildernes Skiing Waiver' needs to be signed upon arrival.

Myvatn Nature Baths

Near Lake Myvatn in north Iceland we find the great geothermal Nature Baths. The lagoon itself is a man-made construction. The waters contain a large amount of minerals, are alkaline and excellent for bathing. Altogether, the lagoon and the basin contain around 3.5 million litres of water with a temperature of 36 – 40°C.

The Nature Baths of north Iceland

The inhabitants of the Myvatn region have been enjoying healthy bathing in the hot geothermal springs ever since Iceland was settled by the vikings. There is heat in the earth, hot springs sizzle in the fissures all around and nowhere else in Iceland does such pure steam rise from the earth, free from sulfur vapors or any other pollution.

Grettislaug Natural Pool

After a busy day in the mountains, there is nothing better than flying over to Skagafjordur and relax in the natural pool of Grettislaug. It is named after Grettir "the strong" Ásmundarson after he bathed there in 1031 after swimming from the island Drangey to get firewood. The water in Grettislaug is approximately 40°C. There is something adventurous about taking a dip in one of the historic pools in Iceland. After the bath we fly back to Siglufjordur where our master chef will prepare a delicious dinner.

Horseback Riding Tour

Experience Iceland's unique wilderness on horseback. If there is any energy left in our skiers after a hard day in the mountains, we will go to an old Icelandic horse farm in Eyjafjordur.

The Icelandic horse is a five-gaited breed, famous for its smooth tölt or flying pace. It is known for its sure-footedness, strength and ability to cross rough terrain, as well as its kind nature. The Icelandic horse has served the Icelandic people well throughout the ages ever since the vikings first set foot on Icelandic soil. In recent years, breeding, taming and trading the Icelandic horse is no longer only the main hobby of many Icelanders but has grown into a profitable industry as the horse's qualities and distinctive characteristics has gained popularity amongst horse enthusiasts in northern and central Europe.
