Downhill Skiing Adventure | Snaefellsjokull Glacier

Grab your ski goggles and book now for this easily accessible downhill skiing adventure at the majestic and boundless Snæfellsjökull Glacier in West Iceland. Any avid skier travelling to the land of ice and fire should not let this opportunity pass them by. Whether you're an intermediate skier or a fast carving professional, the famous Snæfellsjökull Glacier has a wide range of different, off-piste slope gradients well suited to your own taste, discipline and ambitions. Your adventure will begin at Meeting Point B, at the guide offices in Gufuskálar in Snæfellsbær. Here, your guide for the day will run through the tour itinerary, provide all of the necessary equipment (eg; skis, ski poles, GoreTex outwear, avalanche safety kit, etc) and brief you on the environment, history and nature of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Now, at long last, you're ready to hit (and appreciate) these magnificent slopes. After your short shuttle ride to the glacier, you, your group and your guide will spend four hours brushing up on skills, enjoying the truly exquisite scenery and feeling that unique rush that comes with skiing out in the far-reaching wilderness. Why hit the man-made slopes, after all, when Mother Nature did such a marvellous job? You will quickly discover this tour is a fantastic option for avoiding the uphill hikes so common in off-piste skiing. Here, you trade in a ski-lift for one of our very own Snowcats, a truck-sized, fully tracked vehicle designed for snow travel. Where you decide to direct the Snowcat driver is entirely up to you―just one of the many advantages that come with such mobility.  Given that you will be skiing in Iceland, be aware that weather conditions can vary drastically from day to day. One day you might be carving up deep powder, next gliding across hardpack snow. Dress accordingly and do remember to bring dark-glass goggles or sunglasses. So what are you waiting for? Check availability now to not miss out on the once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience this fantastic and unique method of experiencing Snæfellsjökull glacier. Check availability by choosing a date.
