Klængshóll Lodge in Skíðadalur Valley or Raven Hill Lodge in Ski Valley as it would translate to in English, is our main base of operations and ancestral home. The Lodge is an ancient sheep farm that's been continually habited from the time of the settlement of the Vikings in Iceland in circa 850AD. The last sheep farmers at Klængshóll were the grandparents of Arctic Heli Skiing's founder Jökull Bergmann, and he grew up on the farm working as a shepherd in the mountains of the Troll Peninsula. 

The Klængshóll property consists of 4 cabins, the main farmhouse, the bath house, and the barn. The current farm house was built in the late fifties and maintains the classic appearance of the houses built in that era with a large kitchen/dining room which was the heart, soul and meeting place of the whole family in those days and many bedrooms of varying sizes. Another classic part of the architecture of these mid twentieth century farm houses is the large entry way used in the preparation of foods for storage and many other tasks. The exterior is white washed with a bright red roof, keeping in tradition with the color of a most Icelandic farmhouses.

The old farmhouse now serves as our dining area and lounge.  All meals are served in our country style kitchen/dining room and prepared by our amazing chef Heimir Hannesson, one of Icelands premier chefs. The focus is on local products such as organic lamb and fresh fish, with great emphasis on using what nature provides in the region. Vegetarians and guests with special dietary requests need not worry for Heimir is well versed in preparing meals for all types of diets.  The dining room is well stocked with a selection of locally brewed beer, spirits and wine. You can visit our Dining page for details on the food you can expect during your stay with us.

We ski right to of the door of Klængshóll Lodge with one of our signature runs ´The Horse´ giving you over 1200m or 4000ft of vertical descent right back to the front door of your private cabin.


Guests will enjoy the luxury of our new traditional style cabins for sleeping. Each cabin is made up of 2 separate "apartments" and all apartments have mountain views.  Each apartment has an upper loft with a double bed and a single bed on the main floor so a couple can sleep upstairs or one guest can sleep upstairs and one downstairs for maximum comfort and privacy. Each room has a bathroom with a shower and all the comforts of a remote heli ski lodge, with the added bonus of being very traditional in style, where every detail has been thought out to make your stay as comfortable and memorable as possible. The 4 cabins at Klængshóll comfortably sleep up to 16 guests.

Perhaps no place at Klængshóll is as important or popular as the Barn, which used to hold the winters supply of hay, but has now been restored to house our ski and boot room, ski shop, where our ski techs prepare your skis as well as our very own gift shop. The Barn is also where you will enjoy your apré ski snacks and cold drinks at the end of the day, hanging out by the wood burning stove in the comfortable yet rustic lounge, where you can also enjoy your photos and videos on the big screen or play a round of darts or pool. On the second floor you will find our exercise and Yoga room where guests can enjoy an AM stretch class each morning or go for a few rounds of ping pong at night.
