If it seems like everyone and their (hopefully thawed out by now) mother is going to Iceland these days, you're right. They are. So if you want to make your Icelandic expedition stand out from the crowd's, you're gonna need to go big.
How's heli-skiing sound?

So what exactly will your Icelandic adventure look like? A little something like this:

First, you’ll take a helicopter to the top of any number of 3,000 to 4,000-foot peaks (they cover a range of experience levels). Smell that? You better believe that’s the sweet sea breeze. After carving down perfectly packed snow, you’ll reach the ocean. Then back to the top to rack up as many dream lines as your knees can handle.
After a long day of skiing from peak to beach, you’ll head back to Deplar Farm, a 13-bedroom lodge that used to be a sheep farm. The fluffy guys have been replaced with indoor/outdoor saltwater pools with bars, hot tubs, a spa facility with flotation tanks, and even a few suites should you want to waste your time sleeping.

And if you need a day off the slopes? The fine folks at Eleven are versed in much more, and will gladly take you snowmobiling, boating through fjords, whale watching or fly fishing at some of the world's most exclusive salmon spots.
And all of those things will make for a more impressive "I went to Iceland" story than whatever your chump friends are bringing to the table.
