After a few runs we will find a great spot for our lunch which will be served outside on the mountain picnic style. Then our ride continues through the day. Viking Heliskiing has reached anagreement with some of the local farmers, allowing us to drop in at the farms to taste some Icelandic shark, smoked arctic char or even smoked lamb.
