The roots of skiing in Ísafjörður are deep with the oldest cross country ski race in the country and many Olympic skiers in town. Now you get a chance to test your skills with a professional guide that will show you the tricks of the trade.

Ísafjörður usually receives one of the heaviest snowfall in Iceland and it’s almost always possible to find good skiing conditions during the winter months. There is no need to venture far from the town to find good grounds and experience few hours of exciting winter activities.
