Just below the Arctic circle lies Iceland’s longest fjord, Eyjafjörður, home of the capital of northern Iceland, Akureyri. Surrounded by numerous summits ranging from 1200 to 1500 m (4000-4900 feet), Eyjafjörður offers a great number of interesting descents and is an ideal location for a scenic fjord tour. Most of our time will be spent on the west side of the fjord, on the peninsula of Tröllaskagi (Peninsula of the Trolls), but we will also visit the peaks of the east side. The high northern location of these mountains will assure a good quantity of snow and the view of the neighboring mountains and down to the deep blue fjord is both magnificent and surreal. In the late afternoon, local swimming pools, that sometimes look more like a spa (heated with the geothermal hot water), are a welcoming place to relax after a day of skiing from a mountain summit to the ocean. Lodgings in a country guesthouse.
