Akureyris' ski resort is situated just 5 km outside of the town, it is a very  unique area. The elevation of the site goes  from 500 m to 1000 m above sea level and so there is  plenty of opportunity for good skiing during the winter months. Since 2006 Hliðarfjall has had a number of snow making machines  installed which extendes and improves snow conditions on the slopes.  The longest trail is more than 2.5 km. It is equipped with 7 ski lifts and 23 alpine slopes. All of the main runs are floodlit, allowing evening skiing. Lifts open at 13:00 on weekdays until 19:00; at weekends lifts are open from 10:00 to 16:00. 

Our ski rental has complete range of equipment for alpine, telemark, snowboard and cross country skiing. We also have snowblades and sledges.

Ski and snowboard lessons for both children and adults, are available at the ski centre daily. Please book in advance.

Cross country tracks for all levels of skiers. 3,5 km. of the cross country trails are flood lighted until 10pm which is groomed daily. Many other trails are available depending on the conditions.

There are two cafeterias at the ski resort. Both serving hot/cold drinks, a selection of hot/cold food,  home cooked soups and confectionary.
