Iceland is our kind of country. This is a land of fire and ice, lava and glaciers, fjords and mountains, bleak landscapes and part-like-there’s-no-tomorrow late nights. There’s simply no time to relax here - the Superjeeps, snowmobiles, helicopters and Icelandic ponies are all primed, waiting to take you out in to raw nature. You’ll discover frozen waterfalls, steaming hot pools, abundant marine and birdlife, exploding geysers and bubbling lava. Often the northern lights will be dance above.

But we somehow need to drag you away from the vibrant and seductive capital.  And therein lies the problem with Iceland - so much is packed in to this small island and the adventure opportunities are unparalleled. What we leave out to afford you some free time to simply meander around Reykjavik becomes the issue.

Different Snow can create a truly tailor-made itinerary. It’s up to you how much you wish to focus on the skiing only or how much time you want to devote to exploring the country and culture. We know Iceland extremely well and using our expert advice and on-the-ground knowledge will create the perfect itinerary - for you.

These serve to demonstrate what is possible; yet can be adapted to suit your interests, preferences and budget.
