    Skálafell Ski Area will be closed this winter.


The ski areas of Bláfjöll and Skálafell are both only 25 minutes away from the city. Bláfjöll is south-west of the city and Skálafell east of the city. Both areas have great ski slopes for downhill skiing and snowboarding as well as tracks for cross-country skiing. There is no need to order ski equipment in advance. It is not known exactly when we can open the ski areas, it depends a lot on if there are enough snow  in the mountain. In recent years has it been able to open a few days in December but almost certainly from beginning of January.

Bláfjöll has 14 lifts. Skálafell has 4 lifts.

Skálafell will be closed for the winter season of 23/24.

For more information about Bláfjöll and Skálafell please call 530-3000 or look us up on FACEBOOK & INSTAGRAM
