Viking Heliskiing spezializes in heliskiing trips in the northern part of Iceland. Our exclusive headquarters are located in the valley of Ólafsfjörður 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 decents. Our location in the heart of our skiing area is the key to fast and easy access to the mountains where our ski in/ski out lodge is located only 3 minutes away from the first slopes. Let our internationally certified guides with their experties 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 compteted in 3 Olympic games and has several World Cup points in his carrer. 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, determenation and dedication to his job has made him to be one of the very best ski guides in Iceland.

You will be staying at our private luxurious Viking Heliskiing Lodge at Þverá (Thvera). Our guests stay at our 100m² Cabins that have two bedrooms, a living room and a private geothermal water jacuzzi. In all lodges there are new quality mattresses made up with comfortable linen, soft towels and warm blankets. With only a short walk at the furthest from the main lodge, you will feel peace and privacy in your guest cabin as snow covered mountains reside next to you.

Our pilots are some of the most experienced in the industry allowing us to safely and steadily access and land on top of the best lines. It is not common to be able to ski down the mountain to a helicopter sitting by the ocean-side before taking you back up again, but here at Viking Heliskiing we can provide that and other amazing experiences.

The opportunities for other activities are enormous in the area so you don´t have to worry about being bored in case of a down day. You can for example go horseback riding, whale whatcing, visit some of Icelands naturebaths , scuba diving, surfing or visit the newly built beer spa called Bjórböðin that several travel magazines have chosen as one of the most interesting places to visit in the world. 

Come and join us and we welcome you to the Viking family.
