The day of arrival
You'll be picked up at Akureyri Airport and driven to the Viking Heliskiing Lodge. You can also be picked up in Akureyri by the Viking helicopter upon request. Once you've checked-in at the Lodge, you'll have a short meeting with other skiers and the Viking Heliskiing guides. After the meeting, dinner will be served in the main Lodge. In the evening, guests can relax and enjoy a drink and some snacks while looking at the program for the coming tour.
The days to come
Ready for the thrill of your life? You'd better be! You'll be staying with the Vikings, giving you the opportunity to have an experience and adventure of a lifetime.
After breakfast you'll have a short briefing regarding avalanche safety and beacon training, helicopter safety, and ski-/snowboard equipment adjustment, just so everyone will be ready.
Then the fun part will start; heliskiing/helisnowboarding and exploring new lines and enjoying the breathtaking view while skiing down to the Arctic Ocean. Terrain selection will be determined by your expert guides and is based on avalanche assessment, weather and the skiing ability of the group. Your safety is the team's number one priority.
After a few runs you'll find a great spot for lunch, which will be served outside on the mountain picnic style. Then the ride will continue through the day. Viking Heliskiing has reached an agreement with some of the local farmers, allowing you to drop in at the farms to taste some Icelandic shark, smoked arctic char or even smoked lamb!
After detaching the skis at the end of the day, you can enjoy some of the adventure packages they are offering, e.g. whale watching, sea angling or horseback riding on the great Icelandic horse. It is also possible to bathe in Iceland's nicest swimming pool in an unforgettable environment. The other option is just to sit down at the Viking Bar to relax and unwind with a glass of wine or a pint of the Icelandic Viking beer.
Later in the evening, the entire group will have dinner together in the Viking Heliskiing Lodge and discuss the great runs and adventures of the day.
In case of bad weather and down days you have a great opportunity to explore Iceland in a different way and enjoy all the activities they have to offer.
This is the last day of the tour. After breakfast you'll head out to the mountains to enjoy the last day. On the schedule today is exploring more new lines and the breathtaking view. The last run of the day will be a home-run. You'll ski all the way down to the Lodge where you can for the last time jump in the hot tub, before enjoying the final drink and saying goodbye to your guides and your new friends.
You'll be driven back to Akureyri where you can either go straight to the airport or spend some time discovering Akureyri. Upon request you can also use the helicopter to be flown back to Akureyri.
Yes it is hard to leave, but all fairy tales have to end... Keep in mind that you are always welcome back to join the Vikings and be a part of the explorers writing this amazing chapter in your life
