Arctic Heli Skiing in Iceland
Living a dream come true.
I was very fortunate to be the winner of Arctic Heli Skiing’s Lucky Leap Year Giveaway. The prize was a 4 Day Classic Heli Skiing Package. Besides amazing heli skiing, the package also included lodging at Klængshóll Lodge (true luxury in a rustic setting), all meals (delicious gourmet food prepared by a full-time chef), morning Yoga classes, full use of Lodge Spa facilities, as well as complimentary beer! Included in the many beer choices are a light and a dark beer with Arctic Heli Skiing’s private label made by a local brewery.
Some people may say that getting there is half the fun. I wouldn’t say this about a seven hour overnight flight to Iceland, but riding up in a helicopter for each scenic ski run to more untracked powder comes close.
I arrived a couple of days early and spent some time in Reykjavik. I spent my first night at the Sunna Guesthouse which is across the street from Hallgrímskirkja Church.
There are elevator rides to the top.
Here is one of the views
The background got me thinking about patchskiing possibilities.
When I poked around inside I found an awesome Hallgrimskirkja made from Lego
I wonder if they used Kragle?
I walked through the city down to the Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall and Conference Centre.
It looks even cooler from the inside
Look closely at the reflection to the left of David Bowie and you'll see me
I was glad that I got to see the photo exhibit
Before I go with this trip report I'd like to thank Spindrift and Cloudpeak for their encouragement and input that was helpful with this adventure.
