Here at Viking Heliskiing, we specialize in heliski trips in the north part of Iceland. Our headquarters are located in Ólafsfjorður and the Tröllaskagi (the Troll peninsula) is our main heli-skiing area. We will guide you through a world class skiing area with thousands of slopes waiting for their first descents at all levels of skiing.

The founders of Viking Heliskiing, Jóhann H. Hafstein and Björgvin Björgvinsson, are both former Olympic ski racers who competed for their country on the Icelandic National Skiing Team. After retiring from the race scene they have transitioned their focus to engage in big mountain skiing and freeriding while obtaining their AMSG ski guide certifications.

Viking Heliskiing has a powerful team of skillful and experienced heliskiing guides, specializing in challenging conditions. At Viking we are more than just a team of professional guides, we are a big group of friends that make relation to our guests. We focus on small groups and high quality in our operation with our guest's safety and enjoyment as top priorities. Our dedication is to provide unforgettible ski holiday to our guests. To be able to do that, we have put together a special team of professional, experienced and qualified heliskiing guides.

Our pilots are some of the most experienced in the industry allowing us to safely and steadily access and land on top of the best lines in all of Iceland. It is not common to be able to ski down the mountain to a helicopter sitting by the ocean-side before taking you back up again, but here at Viking Heliskiing we can provide that and other amazing experiences.

During extra sunny days or down days, or even after a day of skiing, we love taking our guests out on Skjöldur our 28’ ft boat. Skjöldur, or “the shield” is perfect to relax on while whale-watching, or even to gear up and scuba dive off of. Just north of Ólafsfjorður and south of the Arctic Circle is a world famous diving spot where you can dive between two continents. The bay here in Ólafsfjorður is also great for surfing when the winds and weather are right. Here at Viking Heliskiing, we would like to provide many opportunities and experiences while staying with us in our beautiful guest cabins and lodge.
