Strap on your ski boots and embark on an exhilarating cat skiing tour on Múlakolla Mountain. If you are a backcountry skier or snowboarder, looking to reach the deep powder areas of North Iceland, this snowcat adventure is perfect for you.

Your excursion begins as you meet up with your local guide in the town of Ólafsfjörður, nesting at the mouth of the North Iceland fjord Eyjafjörður. Then, you climb in the snowcat and begin your drive to the top of the mountain Múlakolla, ploughing through the deep snow to reach areas not ordinarily accessible with anything but a helicopter.

During your tour, expect to gain a stunning view of Ólafsfjörður, Eyjafjörður and Tröllaskagi, also known as the Troll Peninsula, a dramatic mountain range and one of the pearls of North Iceland. On clear days looking out to sea, you can also get a clear view of the islands Hrísey and Grímsey, where they sit in the Atlantic Ocean at the very edge of the Arctic Circle.

The peak of Múlakolla Mountain reaches 984 metres (3,228 feet), making the views from the top vast and fantastical. This land was carved via glacial movements, creating dramatic valleys, trickling rivers and the tallest mountains in the country outside the central Highlands.

Going skiing or snowboarding on this stunning mountain range is a treat not experienced by many. You bring your own gear and get help with loading it in your transportation, the Pisten Bully Park 300 Snowcat, a fast and smooth rider that seats 28 people just fine along with their winter sports gear. If you didn't bring your gear, you can rent it in the skiing area of the neighbouring town Siglufjörður.

Of course, there is no need to sit in the heated comforts of your snowcat for the trip down. Instead, you can fly down the slopes on your ski or board, kicking up the snow as you go. If you participate in neither of these winter sports, you can still come along on this tour, enjoy the sweeping mountain views and catch the ride downhill afterwards.

Don’t hesitate, book your snowcat adventure now and go skiing in the mountains of North Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.
