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!

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.

I lovevisiting here and my kids prefer this to skiing close to home! Hlidarfjall has great facilities for the youngest skiiers as well as a good skiingschool so mom and dad can go off skiing alone! This is unique in Iceland. Have seen blind skiiers as well as skiing on one leg. You can rent the equipment if you like.

Probably not the best in the world but quite good. As it is only a few minutes drive from Akureyri you can get your excercise and relaxe afterwords in Akureyri´s swimmingpool, before going to dinner for example.
