Where the mountains meet the coast, this unique experience brings you skiing with views across the deep blue. Ranging from soft valleys to vertical descents with unrivalled access and world-class Heli skiing. A mesmerising experience, beginning at the summit and ending at the sea.

When to go:
February – May

Unearth the beauty of the land of ice and fire. A place where vast snow plains meet the wild arctic sea and the land is dotted with looming volcanos and flowing glaciers. The Tröllaskagi Peninsula lies to the west of Eyjafjorour fjord, a mountainous region with several peaks reaching over 1,000 meters above sea level. Start your journey surrounded by crisp blankets of snow as your board your helicopter with the smell of the sea filling the air. Heading high into the volcanic hills your expert guide will find the first-class drop-off points to set off from. With a vast terrain that covers more than 4000 square kilometers of breathtaking Arctic mountains from extreme couloirs or wide-open glaciers. Your guide will cater to your personal abilities and desires to make sure you have the ultimate Heli skiing experience.

Northern Iceland’s sweeping mountains provide world-class terrain in one of the most remote and sparsely populated places on the planet. Relish the novelty of untouched slopes with steep decants that cry out for fresh tracks. The area sees some of the highest average snowfall on the planet, making it a dream spot for skiers and boarders alike. With endless terrain to explore your Heli will be on standby to give you unrivalled and instant access to world-class runs. Starting each decent atop spectacular peaks and gliding through fresh powder right to the seashore.

For a day off your feet why not explore the stunning area on a traditional Nordic horse. Discover sweeping valleys, striking fjords and glacial rivers, far from civilisation. Spend a day out to sea in search of ocean giants in the other worldly landscape of Eyjafjordur, a prime sport for blue or humpback whales or even orca. The land of the midnight sun provides extensive daylight hours so sea to summit runs are achievable even after dinner or you may wish to explore the area on foot on a guided mountaineering tour.

After an adrenaline-fueled day, spend your evening soaking up the scenery in naturally heated geothermic pool, before a delectable dinner with wine perfectly paired from the cellar. This is the perfect way to relax your aching muscles and feel replenished for another day in this unique mountain setting. Icelandic cuisine focuses on the local ingredients with world envied fresh fish or a succulent leg of lamb your chef will ensure you have gourmet meals throughout your stay. Sit by a flickering fire and watch as the sky becomes a wash with colour as the Aurora borealis appear creating an otherworldly ambiance.
