The Programs

2018 will be Arctic Heli Skiing's eleventh season of heliski operations and the eighteenth season of guiding ski touring groups in Iceland. We invite you to participate in a true adventure of exploration and discovery. First descents, naming runs and visiting peaks that have never seen a human being before is what you will experience along with outstanding professional service and a cultural experience of a lifetime. Our program is run out of Klængshóll Lodge in Skíðadalur valley, or Raven Hill Lodge in Ski Valley as it would translate to in English on the Troll Peninsula in Northern Iceland. The lodge is situated right in the middle of the best ski terrain and we fly right out of there with the closest runs only 3 minutes away.

In 2018 we will be offering 4 different programs including our Classic program for up to 12 guests, our Premium program for groups of 8 skiers, or 2 Private program options for groups of 4. These programs are custom built for those looking for a quick get away but still giving you plenty of good skiing and time in case of bad weather or conditions.

Day-to-day program overview
 
Day 1

Arrival in Akureyri, Iceland in the afternoon. 45 min transfer to Klængshóll Lodge for a meet and greet, guest briefing and dinner. On the first evening you will have the chance to discuss with your guide, make sure all your gear is in order and relax after your travels. For those with less time available, meeting on day 2 ready to ski is possible. This way you can fly in from the USA or Canada and be skiing the same day.
 
Day 2-4 or 6

First descents, adventure and exploration is the name of the game. You will have the chance to participate in Icelandic skiing history by skiing in areas never before visited by skiers. Our 2016 season is dedicated to exploration and the opening of new terrain. You are invited to be a part of a team of explorers on a grand adventure. Evenings are spent at Klængshóll Lodge where we feast on local dishes focusing on organic lamb, fish and game prepared by our in house chef. In case of bad weather and no flying we have the unique opportunity to visit for example Lake Mývatn Nature Reserve with its steaming hot springs, volcano's and lava fields. Go ski touring, whale watching, sea angling or simply relaxing in one of many geothermal baths on the Troll Peninsula.
 
Day 5 or 7

We pack our bags in the morning and head out for our last day of skiing. After one more day of great turns and good times with friends we have lunch in the field and head home for one last sauna or hot tub session. After saying our good byes to our new friends in Ski Valley we head back to Akureyri where we can catch a flight to Reykjavik or even connect to the Eastern seaboard that same day.
