Iceland’s premier downhill ski slope is west of town, 5km up Glerárdalur, with 24 pistes covering all skill levels. The area has a vertical drop of 455m, with the longest trail over 2.5km. There’s also 20km of cross-country ski routes.

The ski season usually runs between December and late April, with the best conditions in February and March (Easter is particularly busy). In the long hours of winter darkness, many of the downhill runs are floodlit.

There’s ski and snowboard rental, two restaurants and a ski school. In season, buses usually connect the site with Akureyri; check the website for details.
