Private holiday in the Skíðadalur Valley

Exclusive exploration of the Troll Peninsula! You put your own group together to privatize the helicopter. With four ski buddies and two guides, you enjoy optimum conditions. Travelling in the renowned Ecureuil (or Squirrel), the benchmark helicopter for mountain operations, you can access unique descents.
From the mountain peaks to the fjords of the Atlantic Ocean, you ski down a vertical difference of up to 1,300 meters.
You can even choose to personalize your accommodation for even greater comfort.


Early February to late June

The Troll Peninsula




Skiing from the mountain peaks to the ocean
The stability of the snowpack
The majesty of the unspoiled natural surroundings
Bathing in the hot springs
The chance to see the Northern Lights


The best time to arrive at Akureyri airport is late afternoon.
It is then a 45-minute drive to Klængshóll Lodge. The first briefing of the week will be given before dinner,
with your guides for the week on hand to answer any questions you have.

Heliskiing will be on the program on this first day but first there will be a safety briefing. This important moment will be the occasion to remind you of the safety instructions and what to do in the event of an avalanche, but also more specifically how to move around the helicopter.
Once the briefing is over, you are ready to fly!

The guides will organize the program day by day so that they have the best possible view of the conditions. The aim is to optimize your heliskiing time, so their choice of runs will take the weather constraints into account so that you get the most out of your stay.
Hearty, gourmet snacks will be taken in the helicopter for midday refreshment.
After the day’s skiing, you will have time to enjoy the welcoming Klængshóll Lodge. The sauna and jacuzzi are at your disposal to help your muscles to relax and massages can be arranged on request.
Dinner is also served at the lodge, prepared with care by the chef. The main products are lamb and fish, which the chef accompanies with vegetables and spices up with surprising flavors.

After a final breakfast at the Lodge, you pack your bags and set off for a last session of heliskiing.
You return to the Lodge to collect your luggage and then it is time for your transfer back to the airport.

You can stay at Klængshóll Lodge in the Skíðadalur valley. This accommodation is not privatized.
If you would like private accommodation, we can propose the Hialteyri Hotel. This hotel is nestled in the small hamlet of Hialteyri that is both unusual and charming. Once a lively fishing port for herring, the hamlet is now a place where artists live. It was therefore only natural that a businessman and art collector should create the Hjalteyri Boutique Hotel in 2015.
This is one of the best hotels in Iceland, offering very spacious rooms (20 – 25 m2) with en suite bathrooms. There are also suites of 50 to 90 m2.
The very special feature is that they all have ocean views.
Meals are served in the large dining room on the ground floor.
This high-end venue has been designed like a museum, with many works of art on display.
