Helicopter assisted ski touring

Whether you are a group skiing in the area on your own or if  you are on a touring program with Bergmenn Mountain Guides we can assist you with a heli drop for ski touring. During our heli skiing season (mid-February through June) we typically have 2 to 4 helicopters based at our Klængshóll lodge in Skiðadalur. Depending on conditions and our heli skiing program for the day, it is possible to drop touring groups off on a nearby peak in the morning before our regular heli programs begin.

2024 Dates & Prices

A heli drop for ski touring is based on €3,500 /hour of flight time and would typically include 1 drop in the morning. If you are a group of 4 then the cost will be approximately €290/person. It is possible to access some amazing terrain within 20 minutes of flying or less and please keep in mind that this accounts for both legs of your transfer.

We can usually accommedate multiple loads of transfer, in the case of more then one load there are 4 guests on the first load and then up to 5 guests on each load after that. Please keep in mind that this option is highly time dependent and has to be coordinated ahead of time. 

We have several heli access only ski tours in the area to chose from. Our guides will work with the group leader/guide to decide upon the best option based on conditions and the group.

Due to the many variables involved with heli assisted touring we are not able to guarantee a date in advance. If you are a visiting guide to the area and would like to arrange a drop for your group please contact us via or phone +354.858.3000 and we will do our best to accommodate you.
