Viking Heliskiing specializes in heliskiing trips in the northern part of Iceland. Our headquarters are located in Siglufjörður that is perfectly situated on the Troll peninsula that is our main skiing area. The peninsula is every heliskiers dream, with thousands of slopes waiting for their first descents. Our location in the heart of our skiing area is the key to fast and easy access to the mountains. Let our internationally certified guides with their expertise and more than 100 years of experience guide you to the best terrain while securing your safety.
The founders of Viking Heliskiing, Björgvin Björgvinsson and Jóhann H. Hafstein have know each other since they were young boys. They are both former alpine skiing Olympians who competed at the highest level in the world. Björgvin is one of the best Icelandic skiers in history and holds the record of most national championship titles. He competed in 3 Olympic games and has several World Cup points in his carrier. He is born, raised and still lives with his family in Dalvík on the Troll peninsula. Björgvin has been in the mountains from a very young age and knows the area like the back of his hand. Jóhann is raised with skis on his feet. His passion for outdoor activities, hard work, determination and dedication to his job has made him to be one of the very best ski guides in Iceland.
