Heli-Skiing - Pure Adrenaline Rush
Iceland has seen a huge tourism boom in the past five years, but few travelers venture deep into the Troll Peninsula, 250 miles north of Reykjavik. Just below the Arctic Circle, thousands of mind-blowing slopes and peaks await the confident downhill skier.
We’ve teamed up with the first heli-skiing company in Iceland, which holds exclusive rights to ski more than 4000 square kilometres of spellbinding terrain, from wide open glaciers to vertical descents that glide straight down to the Arctic ocean.
Skiing from summit to sea under the rays of the midnight sun gives night skiing a whole new meaning. Throw in a mix of Northern lights, hot springs, lava fields and Viking culture, and you’ll find that Iceland is a one-of-a-kind skiing destination. And there are almost 24 hours of daylight to make the most of it.
90 percent of the world's heli-skiing takes place in British Columbia. The glacier climate, vast wilderness and abundance of powder from December to April make this area ideal for heli-skiing. Canada's premium ski resort, Whistler’s stunning big mountain terrain includes 173 glaciers and 475 named runs, with others yet to be discovered. Perhaps you will be the first to do so.
North America’s largest (and Whistler’s only true) ski-in ski-out luxury hotel, Fairmont Chateau Whistler offers an effortless transition from the exhilaration of the slopes to the indulgence of après ski.
