Experience Ski Touring in the Magical Icelandic Highlands
This adventure shows how Iceland can rival continental Scandinavia when it comes to Alpine skiing. The Icelandic Highlands are Europe’s last true wilderness, and they offer striking contrasts amidst an incredibly diverse volcanic landscape. As your professional and knowledgeable skiing guide leads you through the terrain, you’ll witness craters, lava fields, snow filled gorges and canyons where thick steam bursts out of the Earth. Travelling through these magnificent surroundings in the summer is already an amazing experience, but winter allows for a unique adventure. The Highlands are blanketed in snow and feature skiing opportunities open to only a few. During this time of the year, the region is calm and serene. The natural wonders create striking contrasts and set the scene for an unforgettable experience. After a fun day of skiing, you can enjoy a dip in a natural hot spring under the evening sky. If the conditions are right, you might see the Northern Lights.
Accessible to all those in good health, who are doing some sport regularly and who are used to all-terrain walks. 4-6 hours walking per day, without much carrying.
