Skiing & Heliskiing
Skagafj÷rur is not only charming in the summer months; the winter is a time of endless adventure and fun.
The ski area on the mountain Tindastˇll towering above the town of Saußrkrˇkur is suitable for the whole family, with slopes for both beginners as well as the more experienced. It also has a cross country skiing track.
North Iceland is the home to heli-skiing. At Deplar Farm, set in a remote valley, StÝfla in Fljˇt, surrounded by 3,000 ft peaks, guests can experience amazing heli-ski tours.
Snowmobiling on the mountains and glaciers is becoming ever more popular and not surprisingly as it is a unique experience to speed over snow covered mountains, and there is nothing more exciting than the winter wonderland of Skagafj÷rur.
