Experience an unforgettable day of skiing!

Few things bring as much joy as skiing down an untouched, snow-covered mountain with a breathtaking view over the Arctic ocean.  Summit Heliskiing in Iceland offers heliskiing day tours where customer enjoyment and safety are our top priority. Our base location offers clear access to the main peaks of the Troll Peninsula where many slopes end right at the ocean waves.

Your day

The tour starts at Sóti Lodge in the beautiful Fljótin region at 09:00 where you will meet your guide and cover safety protocols for heliskiing. Sóti Lodge is an approximately 30 minute drive away from Siglufjörður, along one of the most picturesque parts of the Arctic coast way.

Departure w/helicopter is at 11:00, with some of Troll Peninsulas best peaks on the menu. We have partnered with Norðurflug, Iceland’s most experienced helicopter service, and use their Astar B2 helicopters, seating four guests with a guide.

Around lunchtime, we will stop to enjoy refreshments tailor made for us at the lodge, while taking in the spectacular vistas all around us. Nourished and re-energized we are ready for some more skiing, and will end our day at Sóti Lodge where snacks and drinks are on offer.
