FROM NORWAY TO ICELAND

After 7 years of Sail to Ski, it’s time to explore new fjords and mountains. This winter we’re heading to Iceland with vans as our mode of transport.

It will be one week, focused on chasing the best snow at the time. Usually, this means heading North, to the Troll Peninsula, but we might also land in the East Fjords or West Fjords.

Leo will be leading the trip in the same way as Norway, together with one more local skier to show you the mountains.

LAND OF LANDSCAPES

April 8th - 15th, 2023

Hot Springs is a very important part of Icelandic culture. If there’s not a natural one, each little town has their own pool with outdoor jacuzzis and saunas. So we will aim to always end the day in hot water.

We will of course also take the opportunity to see Iceland and its amazing nature. Active volcanoes are not guaranteed, but we can almost promise we will see northern lights!

Since we have vans there are more opportunities to get creative and pick your own lines. However we aim to keep it safe and ski nice runs.

We will not be going on any glaciers so ice axes and harnesses are not necessary.

Campervan in Iceland

WINTERIZED 4X4 CAMPERVANS

Roam the land of ice and fire.

We will live in winterized 4×4 camper vans and ski for 6 days. It will be a mix of touring, resorts, snowmobile-assisted skiing, and hopefully also some cat or heli rides depending on the weather and snow conditions.

Each night we will sleep at a campsite or next to a cabin so there will always be access to toilets, showers, and a place to dry your gear overnight.

Little kitchen in the wild

It is no secret, spending all day hiking and skiing in cold weather takes energy.

To ensure your well-being throughout the entire tour, you will be required to attempt something new for most: wild cooking.

If things go sideways, no problem, the casual restaurants will have you covered too.

However, we recommend trying bonfires and wild cooking to enhance the experience.

Eat. Wild. Always.
