Viking Heli Skiing Iceland
repare for different ski conditions and terrain: from fresh powder to perfectly set up spring corn snow; from intermediate slopes to steep, exposed at a level that’s not possible at other heli-ski operations due to their more unstable snow-packs. Vertical drop can exceed 1,500m or approximately 5,000 feet.
A powerful team of extremely knowledgeable heliskiing guides, ranging from former professional ski racers to UIAGM/IFMGA certified mountain guides lead guests though Iceland's playground. Viking Heliskiing has exclusive agreements with many land owners around The Troll peninsula providing access privately the best terrain on the peninsula. Many of those runs are among the 256 marked and is one of many things that set them apart from other operators.

During the winter you can ski until its dark and watch the northern lights dance in the sky. In the springtime, ski down slopes between the towering peaks and ending the ride on the shoreline of the North Atlantic. In May there are opportunities to return to the alpine after dinner for a few runs under the midnight sun.
