Ski Paradise in Akureyri

Eyjafjördur Fjord is one of the best places in Iceland for cross-country and downhill skiing. Akureyri's ski slopes, which are on mountain Hlíðarfjall, 5 km above the town, are in many ways unique. Their elevation ranges from 500 m to 1000 m above sea level, and there is therefore plenty of snow during the winter. More information HERE.
