Some weeks before coming to Iceland, I booked my young son onto the 4 hour Ski School on Sunday run by Johann at this resort. This morning we drove from Vik to the resort (getting a speed camera flash en route!) to be sure were...More

Visited the place with partner & friends in March 2018. The trainer (Johan, I think) was very patient and helped us learn the ropes. As a first time skier, I took a couple of knocks but learnt gradually. Then tried skiing for a while after...More

We went for sunset and skied into the night. Wow! Breathtaking is the only word I can use to describe. Skiing for all abilities with a choice of different runs. Ski hire available if needed and you pay by the time you wish to ski...More

The resort is small when compared to international standards, but large in Icelandic terms. It can be somewhat icy due to the mild climate on the south coast during the winter. Its ok for a quick ski trip during the winter. If you want to...More

As a lifelong New England skier, I have skied enough days in sub-optimal conditions that I do not need to have good conditions to have an enjoyable time. Indeed, some conditions that other people find great--like acres and acres of perfectly groomed piste--I often find...More
