Backcountry Iceland Midnight sun skiing – Troll Peninsula 26 May – 3 June 2018 £1999
What a fantastic way to end your ski season: making perfect turns in spring snow under the midnight sun with Arctic Ocean glistening beneath you. As one of the more northerly countries in Europe with spectacular coastal mountains, Iceland is fast becoming a mecca for backcountry skiing. Combine this with cheap direct flights from the UK, friendly locals and an abundance of geo thermal hot bathing springs and you have all the ingredients for a magical end of season ski adventure.
We will base our adventure at the Brimnes lodges in Ólafsfjörður near the hub village of Dalvik. The lodges are simple and comfortable, surrounded by the mountains and sea. Each has a double room and a loft room with 5 beds. They comes equipped with high speed internet as well as its own geothermal heated hot tub. You’ll be catered for by the guides who will look after the menu, ensuring you will be well fuelled for your skiing. A post ski routine of hot tubs, hearty meals, wine and great chat is the norm. You’ll travel out each day to explore the dramatic landscape of the Troll Peninsula and all the amazing skiing northern Iceland is fast becoming famous for.
Holiday price includes: 8 nights accommodation in shared room, 7 days mountain guiding – if time and weather permit we’ll squeeze in extra midnight ski, full board and private group vehicle.
Pick up and drop off in Akureyri airport. There are frequent cheap shuttle flights from Reykjavic domestic airport.
