Magic of the Troll Peninsula Heliskiing Day Tour

Heliski Day Tours on the Troll Peninsula Iceland

Overview

Spend a magic day heliskiing the best freeride powder lines on the Troll Peninsula in Iceland. The tour is all inclusive of helicopter time, guide, lunch, safety equipment, skis & après ski snacks. You can add extra days, staying in the Soti Lodge where all meals are included. Come as a solo or group and choose your best date (s) but note that the season is limited to between April 24 & May 15. If interested in an all-inclusive Summit Heliskiing multi-day heliski tour, see the Troll Peninsula Iceland Heliskiing Multi-Day Tour page.

The day tour starts at Sóti Lodge in the beautiful Fljótin region at 09:00 where you will meet your guide and cover safety protocols for heliskiing. Sóti Lodge is an approximately 30-minute drive away from Siglufjörður, along one of the most picturesque parts of the Arctic coast way. Departure by helicopter is at 11:00am, with some of Troll Peninsula's best peaks on the menu!

To view the full list of possible tour routes, see the Itinerary tab.

Ski Terrain & Vertical

The Troll Peninsula is magical due the amount of skiable terrain in relatively compact region. Most of the mountains are skiable with a fabulous terrain mix of open, low-angle alpine bowls & valleys to steep couloirs and faces. Due to the Troll Peninsula's location in the northern latitudes just below the Arctic Circle, there is no tree skiing.

Depending on the group and the terrain skied, an average of 8 runs per day can easily be achieved. Whilst the mountains on the peninsula rise up as high as the 1,445m Dýjafjallshnjúkur (the peninsula’s highest peak), most peaks skied are in the 1,200 to 1,300m altitude range. It is possible to ski runs all the way from the peaks to the seashore. Peak to sea runs will average around 800 to 900m vertical. The average heli ski run ranges between 700 & 1,200m vertical drop.

Snow Quality

The snowpack is predominantly coastal and in the springtime (April/May) ranges from powder to corn snow. Stable avalanche conditions are the norm, allowing for steeper runs to safely conducted (if the group wants!). The corn snow in May allows for more intermediate skiers & snowboarders to enjoy heliskiing in the region.

Helicopter & Guides

Summit Heliskiing have partnered with Norðurflug, Iceland’s most experienced helicopter service, and use their A-Star B2 helicopters, seating four guests with a guide. All guides have expert local knowledge of the region, ensuring the best runs are chosen every time. Guide to guest ratio whilst skiing is 1:4.

Ski Ability & Equipment

The Magic of the Troll Peninsula Heliskiing Day Tour is suitable for fit, strong intermediate or better skiers with previous backcountry off-piste powder & mixed snow conditions experience. Participants need to bring their own ski boots but are provided with all avalanche safety gear (Airbag, shovel, shovel, probe & beacon) and high performance freeride skis. Snowboarders should bring their own board.

Helipad Location

The helipad is located at the Sóti Lodge, near Fljot on the north-western side of the Troll Peninsula in northern Iceland. The closest major airport is Akureyri, 1¾ to 2¼hr drive away. You can inquire about a transfer from the airport to the lodge (the cost is extra but is included on multi-day heliski tours!). Akureyri Airport (AEY) can be reached by domestic flight from Reykjavik Airport (RKV). Flights to Reykjavik from international origins land at Reykjavik's Keflavik International Airport (KEF).

Alternatively, travel can done by car or shuttle from Keflavik airport or Reykjavik city centre. Drive time to Soti Lodge is over 5hr.

See the 'Travel to Iceland' page for detailed information on getting to & around Iceland.

Heli-ski Day Tour Routes

Sigló 360°

From Summit to Sea

Ski from the mountaintops, all the way down to the seashore. You will be able to chase powder lines all day that go all the way to the shoreline, as many of the mountains in the north plunge down to the sea with almost no coastline in between. When skiing down these mountains, you can’t go any further than the sea, so we’ll stop there! At the end of the day there will be a beer and barbecue on the beach.

Advanced routes (additional fees apply)

Gold Coast Exploration

Fly across the long and narrow Eyjafjörður to explore some new lines at Látraströnd, known as the Gold Coast! The somewhat longer flying time will be made well worth it, as we ski down powdery slopes turned golden in the northern sun.
