Launched by the Scandinavian Travel group this year, skiIceland is highlighting Iceland’s appeal to ski enthusiasts this winter.

Ski holidays can include hunting the Northern Lights, glacier hiking, whale-watching with ski resorts and slopes that overlook the fjords and skiing from mountain top to sea level. The area is also able to offer heli-skiing and cat-skiing holidays, plus excursions for hardcore winter sports enthusiasts.

Skiing in Iceland starts from £1,620 per person, based on two sharing and travelling from the UK. As well as skiing in the resorts around Akureyri, the five-night stay includes horse-riding across black sand beaches, a tour of the volcanic wonders of the Myvatn area - including hot springs - and a night hunting the Northern Lights.
