Route 8 daagse rondreis Cross-country skiing in Iceland
Iceland is known throughout the world for many things, from erupting volcanoes to rushing waterfalls to the Northern Lights.The Icelanders themselves make great use of their very own adventure playground and are keen mountaineers, trekkers and downhill skiers. Cross-country skiing is now waking up to the unique opportunities here. On this trip we spend a day and a half skiing near Reykjavik before heading to Akureyri, known as the 'capital of the north'. Traditionally a fishing port, today it is an easy-going town that sits at the head of Iceland's longest fjord. It is the perfect springboard for skiing in magnificent surroundings on crowd-free trails. This far north of course there is also the chance of catching an Aurora display with far less light pollution to contend with than the capital. In so many ways, a cross-country skiing trip here is like no other.
