Nordic and alpine skiing is synonymous with mainland Scandinavian countries. Icelanders are equally keen on all types of skiing, especially in the back country. Whether you live in Iceland, or are just visiting, you quickly learn the best way to get around is by strapping on a pair of snowshoes, cross country or telemark skis. A typical day might find Icelanders skiing on the Akureyri slopes in the afternoon before relaxing in a natural geothermal pool situated perfectly near the slope’s base. Integrating the outdoors into daily life is an Icelandic speciality. Adding style into this mix is 66°NORTH’s undeniable contribution.
