Ísafjörður usually receives one of the heaviest snowfall in Iceland and it’s almost always possible to find good skiing conditions during the winter months. There is no need to venture far from the town to find good grounds and experience few hours of exciting winter activities.

We meet at our cozy office in Aðalstræti 17 (downtown main street) and there we will decide on the program based on your interest and the snow conditions. We’ll drive up to the local cross country skiing area on Seljalandsdalur and park by the ski lodge. Here you will receive a short lesson in using you skis. We’ll then walk into the valley and try to reach the top of Sandfell and if the conditions allow Miðfell as well. Here is a fantastic view of the entire fjord and the town of Ísafjörður. We’ll head back to town after a nice descent down to the cross country ski lodge.
