    Trip in Northern Iceland

    From March 12 to March 18, I am organizing a small ski- and snowboard trip together with Erwin. The trip is around Akureyri in Northern Iceland. We both work for the ski area Hlíðarfjall, in Akureyri, as a ski and snowboard instructor. Erwin has been living in Iceland for 4 years now and for me it will be my second winter season. Erwin a guide in summer guide at Myvatn (known from Game of Thrones and Star Wars) In our free time we often go splitboarding and ski touring.

    In addition to visiting the ski resorts at Akureyri and Siglufjörður
    (known from the series Trapped) we go catskiing and visit Myvatn. In the evening we are searching for the Northern Lights and visit geothermal pools. The freeride terrain has easy acces and in consultation we can also make a tour.

    To get an impression of the area you can watch the films 'Under an Artic Sky' or 'A land shaped by woman'.
