Schedule for 2010 is on the web

We´ve managed to put the schedule for all our trips on the web. As usual it´s full of exciting trips in the beautiful nature that surrounds us.

Borea Adventures adheres to the principles of low impact, sustainable tourism. Our trips are “silent”, as we try not to use any motorized vehicles. We like to encourage physical activity to suit any level of ability from easy sailing and hiking through to exhilarating action sports. On our trips, we tie together our local knowledge of times gone by, the culture, wildlife and the know how of where are the best spots to do exciting things. Last but not least, the word of captain Siggi´s cooking skills are spreading and totally makes the day after a fullfilling experience in the wild nature of Iceland.

Every year we try to include something new and unique and this year is not any different. For the first time we´re offering Glacier Ski Touring on Drangajokull icecap. It´s a great opportunity for those who want to try out skiing across a glacier where hardly any skiing experience is required. The highlights are probably camping on the glacier, exploring the geothermal formed ice craters and two nights in a hut beside a geothermal swimming pool in Reykjarfjordur on the north side of the glacier.

Also for the first time (and after many requests) we´re offering self supported sea kayaking trips in the Glacier Fjords and Isafjardardjup area for the first time. These are the perfect trips for those looking for more self reliance in their travel since we´ll be on our own in the total wilderness of the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve, kayaking where we feel to and where nature and the elements allow us. There are plenty of beautiful spots to make camp in the evenings and light bonfire on the beach from driftwood and maybe some barbeque. The trip begins in Hesteyri and we´ll steadily make our way along the coast and end in Ögur in Isafjardardjup. Sea kayaking is truly a unique way to enjoy nature from a different angle; getting closer to birds and curious seals that would otherwise stay in a safe distance.
