Directions to Hlíðarfjall

Mount Hlidarfjall has been one of the prime areas for skiing in Iceland for over 40 years, with its continual covering of powdery snow, extensive cross country trails and great number of downhill slopes which offer excellent views of the surrounding area. Situated just 5km outside of Akureyri town it attracts a great number of locals and tourists every winter. The site is equipped with 24 marked pistes, seven ski lifts and snow cannons to ensure good snow all season and all the main slopes are floodlit, allowing for evening skiing in the darker winter months.

In nearby Akureyri you will find all of the accommodation, shopping and culture you could ever need.

Ski passes: These range from one hour to eight day passes or even just one chair lift ride if you don't fancy skiing but would like to take in the views. Have a look at the prices list for more information.

Ski rental: Available onsite, the prices vary according to age and quality of skis. It is possible to hire skis, snowboards and cross country equipment for all ages. See the full price list for details.

Ski School: The onsite ski school offers a range of tuitions options, like children's ski school for those aged between five and 12 years old with classes between 10am - 12pm or 10am - 2pm, with the latter including lunch. private tuition of skiing or snowboarding for adults or children is available but must be booked in advance.

Opening Times

Prices vary over the season; see the calendar for more details.

Getting to and from Hlíðarfjall is easy whether by bus or by car, which is also true for the many sights and things to do in the surrounding countryside, such as golfing, touring the magnificent lake Myvatn or swimming in the local pool.
