HOTEL SIGLO

We are proud to offer our guest to stay in the beautiful Luxury Siglo Hotel, which is one of Iceland´s very best hotel.

DETAILS

This package is the perfect combination of Ski Touring and Heliskiing where we use a helicopter to access several different Ski Touring destinations.
Whether you are skiing from the mountain tops all the way down to the ocean or enjoying skiing in different valleys between the high mountains inland, each day is a new experience! The great advantage about this package is the flexibility and use of the helicopter to access the best skiing areas. Another great addition is the option to add extra heli drops at the end of the day when the helicopter comes back to retrieve the group.

Each day starts with a helicopter drop to access our Ski Touring areas. That way our guests get a good warm up run and get their legs working. Then the group will start skinning up to the next mountain top and normally continuing on to do 1 or 2 long Ski Touring runs each day in the beautiful fjords. Our guests will enjoy lunch stops somewhere along the way. At the end of the last Ski Touring run the helicopter will pick up the group again to do the final run of the day. After that run the group will either fly back to the lodge with the helicopter or be picked up by a car.

In terms of Ski Touring and Heliskiing, there are very few places in the world with as many possibilities as the Troll Peninsula in Iceland. The area is vast and largely unexplored. During winter you can ski until dark and watch the majestic Northern Lights dance in the sky. In spring, there is nothing like skiing down slopes in between the towering peaks, ending the ride where the shoreline meets the North Atlantic all the while enjoying the midnight sun.

Ski touring in Iceland is the name of the game! Come and join us!
