From steep couloirs to milder but still engaging slopes, the terrain can accommodate all levels of backcountry skiers.

A true one-of-a-kind experience with fantastic views of the surrounding fjords and the magnificent glow of Iceland’s iconic northern lights.

Our base hotel is in a small fishing town on the northernmost tip of Iceland, surrounded by perfect ski touring terrain. It offers a variety of steeper terrain for sunny days and more mellow terrain when the ocean weather brings snow for the next day. Because the summits are so close to the ocean, the snowpack settles rather quickly. In late April to early May  you can ski powder one day and spring snow the next! 


A tour directly from the town of Siglufjörður, where our lodgings are, up Steinneshnjukur (857m) and Pallahnjukur (861m). The scenery is spectacular looking directly across the North Atlantic ocean.

A 30 minute drive up to Mulakolla  (970m) and Kerahnjukur (1097m). Hard work but the rewards are with it with magnificent views east down to Fjord Eyjafjörður.

A 30 minute drive south will take us to the town of Dalvik on the western shore of Eyjafjörður, the longest fjord in Iceland. You can see across to the island of Hrísey often referred to as “The Pearl of Eyjafjörður”. From Dalvik we can tour up to the top of Dagrihnjukur (1048).

Head east and take a ferry across the Fjord to Grenivik and that opens up some more peaks.

If for any reason we lose a day’s ski touring we can look into multiple other options such as whale watching or horse riding.   There is also the option of heliskiing depending on weather conditions, this will be an additional €1100.00 per person

Accommodation Sigló Hotel
