Ski Iceland

Kaldbaksferðir

Kaldbakur Tours offers during the winter trips up the mountain Kaldbakur which is 1.173m high, making it the highest peak on the northeastern side of Eyjafjörður, with panoramic views all the way east to Langanes and into the highlands of Iceland. Kaldbakur is known as one of Iceland's Energy spots, and a trip up Kaldbakur is an unforgettable experience.

Kalbakur Tours operate two snow cats with a combined maximum capacity of 52 adults. They are both open air so it is necessary to dress warmly according to weather conditions. The journey up Kaldbakur takes approximately 45 minutes. At the very top is a Cairn, which the Danish Kings Army erected in 1914. We stop there for about 15 minutes to enjoy the magnificent view in all directions. Our drivers point out various landmarks and are happy to answer any questions. It's also tradition to sign the guestbook, which is kept in the cairn.
Passengers can then choose to ski, snowboard, walk, sled or just sit back and enjoy the ride down again in the snow cat. If the adventure bug bites, it's possible to use one of our own design Icelandic snow sledges, especially made for adults. They are big and strong with enough room for two, great for the whole family.
