Iceland has a wide range of resorts used for both cross-country skiing and downhill skiing. Hundreds of kilometres of trails are available for you. Excellent skiing conditions: abundant snow, secured environment (even for children) and standard equipment. You can rent everything you need. Air from the Gulf Stream at altitude is cold and dry and the sky is most often blue and clear. The best skiing season is from February to April but some of the island's regions are covered with snow most of the year.
The major ski resorts are: Dalvik, Siglufjörour and Olafsjörour in the North, Blafjöll and Skalafell in Reykjavik region; Isafjörour towards the Fjörds in the West and Oddskaro in the East. Some glaciers are accessible but this obviously depends on the weather.
