Professional Skiing Guides and Helicopter Pilots
Your heli-skiing guides are former skiracers and members of the Icelandic National Ski Team. In recent years they have mainly engaged in alpine skiing, big mountain skiing and freeriding.
They are skilful and experienced ski guides, specialized in challenging skiing conditions.
The pilots are specialized in flying in the arctic environment, especially in the mountainous Tröllaskagi Peninsula in the Icelandic North. They are trained to the highest standards, experienced, multi-lingual and friendly, with a vast knowledge of Iceland's spectacular nature. Safety and comfort is always their main priority as well as providing enjoyable experience that our customers may never forget.
The fleet is made up of the most modern and meticulously maintained helicopters on the market, consisting of Ecureuil Astar AS350 B2 and AS-350 B3 (A-Star's).
The Lodges are located in Ólafsfjördur, in the Icelandic deep north, surrounded by towering mountains on all sides where you can ski down to your lodge in the last run of the day.
Our guests will have their own 100m² lodge that has 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and a jacuzzi. In all lodges there are new quality beds made up with comfortable linen, soft towels and warm blankets.
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.
Sea Hunting & Sea Angling
After a great day Heli-skiing in the beautiful Arctic mountain in Trollaskagi Peninsula we take our boat from Siglufjordur or Olafsfjordur harbors and go duck and black bird hunting by the coastline of the Trollaskagi peninsula.
We take fishing rods along as well for sea angling and fish for cod, haddock, coal fish, whiting, red fish, catfish, dab, rough dab, plaice and halibut if lucky. This is an experience you do not want to miss out on.
The beautiful fjord of Eyjafjordur has one of the best whale watching scenes in the world! The tour is operated in a licensed oak passenger boat, built and equipped to meet the strict standards of the Icelandic Maritime Administration. Exploring the the sea life in the Arctic Ocean is a unique unforgettable experience.
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 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.
