Fantastic place to go skiing

Hlíðarfjall is a fantastic place to go skiing. The mountain is just a few minutes up from the town of Akureyri.

We did half a day of skiing at Hlidarfjall and enjoyed it. It was a cold day, but there was no wind and the skies were clear, therefore we had a great views of Akureyri. Our equipment hire went smoothly and the staff was helpful to us as we were new to the area. The slopes got quite busy by... More

We were in Akureyri 5 days and had planned to ski at Klidarfjall at least two days. Unfortunately the wind was so fierce that the ski area was not open any of the 5 days! There are no trees and, when the wind blows, it is a total whiteout. I imagine that it would be fun to ski there and... More

Loved it up there, instructor great, fairly easy to get hire items etc. they were very patient with all my emails, especially as the slope was closed due to high winds when we had booked. Be warned though the bus only runs Friday, Saturday and Sunday, they expect you to have a car and want to drive up to the... More

A wonderful place to spend the day skiing or sledging. Great for all ages and abilities. The children's/beginners area is free (just have to pay for ski rental which is reasonably priced). Children are also able to sledge in the area. The cafe area could be improved but it does its job. The views over the town of Akureyri are... More

As a Coloradan, I was SHOCKED to find the lift tickets so affordable! We got a two day ticket for approximately $50! The skiing was fun, the food at the lodges extremely affordable (try one of the waffles with jam and whipped cream... AMAZING! and only US $4), and all of the locals that we spoke with were very friendly.... More

This was our first family skiing experience. They had facilities for every experience level. We were there mid week so it wasn't very busy. There was a ski school for the kids, they spoke both english and icelandic. There were also instructors for the not so experienced adults. Nice place, although I can't compare it with other places.

Really good lifts and facilities. Good friendly service in the ski rental/hire, desk/office, and elsewhere. Prices were reasonable. There is even a free children's area with a free ski "travelator". The prices for the ski lifts and hire are reasonable, see web site. The food was good too. It is a big plus how close Hlíðarfjall is to town only... More
