Spring 2013


The 2013 season started in mid-March with our classic Sailboat Ski trips
onboard Aurora.  For the 8th year
in a row Captain Siggi has impressed our guests with his freshly picked mussels
and delicious soups, after the group has skied from one fjord to the next, from
one mountain to another.  Runar
organized ski mountaineering courses in the mountains around the town of
Isafjordur, we did some winter camping under the northern lights and assisted
several groups of professional skiers, climbers and photographers with
logistics in the area.  It’s busy
times and that’s how we like it.

 

When snow melts, we’ll store our ski gear and take out our trekking boots
and kayaks.  We have some
departures where we accept individual bookings and where we still have a few
places available:

 

“Fjords and
Birdcliffs”
is a new 6-day hiking trip in Hornstrandir where we spend the nights in the old
farmhouse of Kviar and in confortable tents in the majestic Hornvik while all
luggage is transported with a speedboat. 
It’s a relatively easy trip as the participants are not required to
carry heavy load between campsites. 
We have two guaranteed departures in July: 8/7 – 13/7 and 22/7 – 27/7.

“Lost Fjords” is another 6-day trekking trip in
Hornstrandir.  It’s more physically
challenging than the other trip as the participants are required to carry their
backpacks between campsites.  It
covers the entire northern part of Hornstrandir and shows all the best that the
area has to offer; history, midnight sun, bays, arctic foxes and bird
cliffs.  We have two guaranteed
departures for that trip: 15/7-20/7 and 29/7-3/8.

“Paddle in the
Wild”
is a 6-day
kayak trip where we experience beautiful fjords, waterfalls, Drangajokull
glacier and small islands.  The
area has rich wildlife; abundance of birds, seals and arctic foxes, good chance
to spot whales and porpoises.  This
trip is intended for people with kayaking experience.  Nights will be spent in good and comfortable tents.  We have available places for one
departure: 5/8 – 10/8.

We’d be happy to have you onboard one of those trips and we
guarantee that you will return with a big smile on your face and great
memories from our remote corner of Iceland.
