We start with an early morning, 45 minutes flight from Reykjavik domestic airport to Akureyri. The flight only takes 45 minutes with beautiful aerial views over the central highlands. From the airport, we head out to Siglufjörður, a small picturesque fishing town 77 km (48 mi) north of Akureyri and the setting of the mystery television series Trapped. Our basecamp will be the comfortable Sigló Hotel located at the pier, on the water. We get settled at our hotel and head out for the first skiing experience in the afternoon. In the evening, we return to hotel to get ready for a welcome dinner.

I wouldn’t change anything about my tour. It was really perfect...Ivar, our guide, was one of the best because he really knows the area and the region really well, and he explained and it was really one of the best ski trips I have ever had.
