Easter has arrived and the opening hours in Hlíðarfjall and Akureyri's swimming pool have been extended on weekends.

It has been decided to extend the opening hours in Hlíðarfjall and Akureyri's swimming pool in the run-up to Easter, as it can be said that the Easter weather has already arrived with great skiing opportunities and spring is in the air.

It will be open longer on Fridays and Saturdays in the mountain and on Saturdays in the swimming pool. This will be the case until Easter if the weather remains favorable and good.

The new chair lift, Fjallkonan, will be opened this weekend. The aim is to open it on Friday and it will be running until Sunday if the weather permits, which will greatly increase the pleasure and improve the experience of skiers. More details will be available on Hlíðarfjall's Facebook page.

The aim is to open an outdoor restaurant in the area southwest of the ski hotel to create a more pleasant atmosphere for the area's guests.

The opening hours in Hlíðarfjall will be as follows for the following weekends and at Easter:
