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.

Itinerary Options for Summit Heliskiing Day Tours

Heli-ski Day Tour Routes

Sigló 360°

The Sigló 360° trip will take you around the peaks at Sigló, including The Horse, Priest’s Peak and Tempest Peak. On this tour the aim is for more ski-time and less fly-time.

V Valley Trip

Ski five different valleys on the same day. On the V valley trip the group will go skiing in five different valleys, located centrally on the peninsula. Troll Peninsula has plenty of beautiful valleys and your guide will pick the five best locations for each trip.

Three Fjord Trip

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)

Accommodation, Food & Facilities

Lodging

Klængshóll Lodge, or Raven Hill Lodge in Ski Valley as it would translate to in English is the main base of operations for the Classic program and ancestral home of the company founders. The property sleeps up to 16 guests based on double occupancy and includes a spa house with sauna, hot tub and massage room, yoga and stretching room, and game room.

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, a bath house and the barn. The current farmhouse 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 the amazing chef Heimir Hannesson, one of Iceland’s 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 the door of Klængshóll Lodge on one the 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 the 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 & each includes high-speed internet, blackout curtains, down duvets, bathrobes, hairdryers, a coffee machine & mini refrigerator stocked with beverages.

Lunch

Lunch tastes better outside and is typically eaten in a well-chosen picnic spot while out skiing. The big lunch box includes delicious soups, sandwiches, tea, coffee and plenty of yummy snacks to keep you fuelled for skiing and snowboarding.

Après

At the end of the day, everyone is invited to hang out in the barn where the après ski snacks from the kitchen will be served, along with cold drinks. You can sit and chat by the wood burning stove in the comfortable yet rustic lounge or play a game of darts or ping pong while unwinding after the day of skiing or snowboarding. For those who dare and would like to experience one of the nation’s oldest traditional delicacies we offer fermented shark (Hákarl), washed down with a shot of “black death” liquor... something that should not be missed!

Main Courses

The very talented chef will take good care of you, serving 3 course dinners along with our helpful kitchen staff. Evenings are spent in the dining area of the main house where you will feast on local dishes focusing on organic lamb, fresh fish and game prepared from scratch. Guests enjoy entrees such as pistachio covered cod and beef tenderloin béarnaise followed by Icelandic Skyr with fresh blueberries.

Beverages

At our bar, we have a good selection of locally brewed beer from the nearby Kaldi Brewery to quench your thirst along with spirits and wine. The refrigerators throughout the property are always well stocked with a selection of soda, juice and beer. As water from the tap in Iceland is as pure as you can find we do not supply bottled water at Klængshóll - Raven Hill Lodge.

The spa house also has shower rooms, a bathroom & massage room, where our professional massage therapist will take good care of your body after a long day of skiing.

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 après ski snacks and cold drinks at the end of the day, hanging out by the wood burning stove in the comfortable yet rustic lounge.
