Day one of each package is the arrival day. Our drivers will welcome you at Akureyri Airport and drive you to Sigló Hotel, where you will meet our hospitality manager. If you drive to Siglufjörður, we will meet you at the hotel upon your arrival.

Ski fitting is done on the day of arrival. If you get in late, we will do it the following morning. 

On day one, before dinner, you have the opportunity to meet our crew who will provide you with all the information you need for the coming heliskiing days. 

The safety and avalanche briefings are conducted on the first day of skiing before the first take-off.
