The Ring Road, Iceland

Icelandic Ski Saga

The Venue

All alone out there in the middle of the North Atlantic, Iceland is one of the world's wildest and most interesting destinations.

In the course of a few hours' drive from their hotel, the traveller can see glaciers, volcanoes, crashing waterfalls, steaming sulphur vents, hot rivers, uninhabited high desert and lonely fishing villages.

Yet, for all this wilderness, dotted amongst the empty space, and connected by safe, quiet roads, lie small towns and villages offering the comfort of modern hotels and the luxury of great quality restaurant food. Larger towns like the capital, Reykjavik, and the northern town of Akureyri, boast gleaming wine bars, restaurants and cool sidewalk cafes, while along the coast little fishing villages offer accommodation in cosy old world hotels and bed and breakfast, where you can eat a leisurely breakfast and watch the comings and goings of the village's fishing boats. There's a good chance that the fish you watch getting unloaded whilst you had breakfast will be the same fish on your plate at dinnertime!

The Package

  • 7 nights accommodations
  • 4 days skiing & training with Section 8 coaches

Besides it's well known landscape and food, Iceland is dotted with small, quiet ski areas, each with a unique  character and spectacular view. The areas may not be sized like the Alps or North America, but what they lack in size they make up for in unforgettable ski memories.
