Join this brilliant day tour skiing and exploring the gorgeous mountain slopes of the Westfjords in Iceland. This is a great opportunity for experienced skiers looking to pack their trip to the Westfjords with adrenaline and discovery. 

Your adventure begins in the morning in the Westford's largest town, Ísafjörður. First things first, you'll meet your friendly and experienced guide for the day who will proceed to hand out all necessary equipment. You will also grab some lunch here, before jumping in the car and heading towards Bolungarvík. 

Before arriving, however, you will pay a visit to Syðridalur Valley. Here, if your guide decides that conditions are suitable, you will get kitted out and take to the slopes for the first time. Mount Heiðnafjall is just one of the many gorgeous peaks found in this area, making you quickly realise how rewarding it is to balance sightseeing with skiing. 

You will next head over to the mountain, Breiðafell, which was once a part of the Ísafjörður ski resort, now abandoned following an avalanche in April 1994. Exploring this area, you will see firsthand sweeping views of the surrounding area, Seljalandsdalur, as well as the remains of the resort's old ski-lifts. This is definitely a location where you'll want to keep your camera at the ready.

How long you choose to spend in this beautiful area is entirely up to you, though it does depend on the amount of snow, conditions and interest of the group. Those who wish to ski for longer are invited to continue further down the valley, where they will be picked up and returned to Ísafjörður.

So don't delay any longer. Hurry now and you too can reserve your place on this exciting day tour skiing in the beautiful Westfjords. Check availability by choosing a date.
