One of the best skiing areas in Iceland is located in Oddskarð pass, between Eskifjörður and Norðfjörður. In the Oddskarð, there is a tow lift that goes up to 840 meters above sea level, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Reyðarfjörður.

The skiing area has two tow lifts and a children's lift, suitable facilities for snowboarders, and a ski lodge with catering facilities. The ski center also offers a skiing course for the youngest children.

Around Easter, there is usually a lot to do in Oddskarð. There is a family festival with many fun traditions, such as the "Sunday best" ski day, Easter egg hunt, and Gunnar Ólafsson's memorial tournament. Then the snowboarders are made high under their heads with neatly made snowboard tracks and platforms.
