Ski-week and Never I went to the south (it meens the region around the capitol Iceland)
in Icelandic: Skíðavika and Aldrei fór ég suður
The Skiweek has a long tradtion in Ísafjörður. This time of the year is really the most beautiful time for cross-country or alpine skiing in delightful sunshine above the town in 200 – 500 m meters in height. Besides the ski-events for the whole family it is in the town during the day and in the evening (and nights) lively: Exhibitions, theater performances, as well as small or large concerts all over the city. Our small town is vibrating because of the many guests. There is a tradition that many young people studying in Reykjavík or have moved there come to visit their relatives over Easter and enjoying the great program by us.
