THE ARRIVAL DAY
Welcome to your dreamy heliskiing/heliboarding holiday with Viking Heliskiing!
What do the typical days look like?
On the arrival day, we welcome our guests at the Akureyri airport. The last part of the travel is a one hour and fifteen minutes drive to our base in Siglufjörður. During the ride, the open Icelandic nature offers the best views, and we are driving next to the longest fjörð in Iceland – Eyjafjörður.
Once in Siglufjörður, the Sigló Hotel is waiting for all our guests. Sigló Hotel is one of the best places in Iceland, and its cosiness, incredible views and facilities guarantee every guest will have an excellent time to remember.
TYPICAL HELISKIING DAY
The first morning before heliskiing/heliboarding is exciting! After breakfast in the hotel, we pick up guests and drive them to our helibase – Clubhouse. At the Clubhouse is all equipment ready, so guests never need to care about anything with them. Before taking off, guests must go through a safety helicopter and avalanche briefing. After briefings, the Troll Peninsula fairytale mountains are waiting.
It’s not only about the heliskiing/heliboarding. The unique scenery, fresh and untouched lines, and exceptional views while skiing/snowboarding where the Arctic and Atlantic oceans meet are unforgettable experiences.
The Troll Peninsula terrain is very various; that’s why our most experienced guides determine every run, skiing/snowboarding ability of each guest, and spot to make it fun yet always safe for our guests.
During every heliskiing/heliboarding day, we find an idyllic place to sit down for a tasty lunch break to recharge the energy and get ready for the second half of the day. Once we return to the Clubhouse, after a whole day of skiing/snowboarding, it’s the aprés ski time! Refreshing drinks and meals, good music while relaxing, exchanging photos and videos. Talk about all those memories from the day, best run, best views, best experiences.
Before dinner time, all guests can choose how they spend their time. Either relax in their room, go to the hot tub, dive into the cold sea, warm up in the sauna, or walk around the Siglufjörður town and explore the Icelandic habitat and culture. The 3-course dinner in Sigló hotel is a blast and a great time to gather together.
If the weather doesn’t cooperate with us and down day appears, we have plenty of adventures available! Whale watching, horseback riding on an Icelandic horse, cat skiing, Beer spa, brewery tour, Mývatn spa, Forest Lagoon, Herring museum, and more. Nothing is impossible, and we are always there for our guests to make this holiday exceptional.
THE DEPARTURE DAY
After your final day gathering “forever” memories of heli-skiing Iceland we reluctantly will head back to the hotel where you can for the last time jump in the hot tub or sauna, enjoy a final drink and sadly say goodbye to your guides and new friends.
Guests will be driven back to Akureyri where they can either go straight to the airport or spent some time in Akureyri. Upon request we can also use our helicopter to fly you back to Akureyri.
Yes it is hard to leave, but all fairy tales must come to an end—but you are always welcome to return, like so many of our regular guests and indeed receive a discount if you book your return visit before your departure to join the Vikings and be a part of the explorers writing this amazing chapter in your life.
