    Fly to Keflavik; transfer to Reykjavik, evening ski in Blajfoll

    We waste no time in getting out on skis. If flights go to schedule we aim to spend a few hours skiing in the Blafjoll area a short drive southwest of Reykjavik. We finish with a transfer back to our Reykjavik hotel. **

    A day skiing in the Blue Mountains

    Our first full day will be spent skiing in the Blue Mountains, the same area we will hopefully have skied the night before, a wonderful area just a short drive from Reykjavik. As an introduction to skiing in Iceland this is certainly effective, composed as it is of sharp mountains and a vast lava plateau. Depending on conditions we may ski in Skalafell, another popular ski area in the Greater Reykjavik Area. **

    Today there is a 25km race organised, a great way to learn parts of the course.

    Isafjordur is the largest town in the Western Fjords or Westfjords as they are also known. The town has long depended on the fishing industry but its popularity, and that of the region, has grown in recent years thanks to the natural beauty provided by the mountaineous landscape and dozens of glistening fjords. We will tailor our skiing here to suit the conditions, however there are events laid on in the run up to the race, such as a 25km race offering a great chance to test out parts of the course and hone our skills. Andy will ensure enough time is spent getting accustomed to the course and building confidence for the race.

    Race registration and optional sightseeing.

    Today is registration day, when we collect our bibs from the race organisers. The rest of the day is free to explore. Activities are available locally such as sea kayaking, and other tours of the area are also available through local providers. This is a great opportunity to see this beautiful part of the country. **

    Race day.

    The day of the race needs no introduction. On completion there is a cake buffet laid on by the organisers, and in the evening there is an optional race party and meal with live music, providing ample opportunity to celebrate the acheivement. For those looking for a lower key ending to the week there is of course the chance to head out for a final meal in a local restaurant. **

    The final day brings with it the drive back down south, one last chance to enjoy the stunning Icelandic scenery. We'll make an early start and stop en route for lunch before arriving early afternoon. **
