Arktika a bit stuck... “32 degrés à Sion, j’irais bien me rafraîchir sur @auroraarktika au Groenland! Pas vous?? “ 📷 @hottinger_photography @worldguiding

Ça pourrait être sur le Léman ou sur le lac de Champex?
Non, c’est au Groenland en 2017 lors de notre visite de la côte est avec @auroraarktika 📷 @hottinger_photography .

“Immediately prior to this shot: An unreasonably chipper mountain guide tossed small speaker into my bunk room like a hand grenade where it instantly exploded with the traditionally Icelandic song, "Conga," by Gloria Estefan. I then had 4 coffees and spoonful of Lysi. I then got on a zodiac with my friends. I then stood on the beach while the rest of the team came ashore.
Despite his unauthorized and brutal use of 'The Gloria,' @wildtracksiceland and I are still friends. And they all lived happily ever after. The end.” @jordanrosenphotography
Aurora and Arktika. “The last night in tasiilaq, from a magic trip⛵” @dunkelheller

This was truly an amazing journey in my life, in what is definitely the most beautiful country in the world.
“Getting to the trailhead has rarely looked this good. @haukur.elis getting us ship to shore from the last nights accommodations on @auroraarktika. July 2017.” @jordanrosenphotography
Walking along the beach on one of our trips to the Blosseville Coast of east Greenland we "bumped into" this guy. Fortunately he was more interested in this nice piece of whale that he was eating.
When the winter storms are raging it’s nice to think back to nice barefoot summer days. @isleyreust took this photo on one of our Hornstrandir trips last year.
How would you like to wake up to this view every day? The ocean and the mountains surrounding the village of Kulusuk are awe inspiring any day of the year. Photo by @avdlphoto
By popular demand🙂. Another great aerial view from @egillari21 . Here you can see our hometown of #Ísafjörður and if you look closely the little landing strip in the top left corner.
It’s tempting to post another great shot from our friend and local pilot @egillari21. Here he is coming in to land in Ísafjörður on new years day. Many of our guests have experienced the exciting approach to this little airport between the mountains.
@egillari21 flying along the mighty Hornbjarg cliffs. Not the usual view for us sailors and hikers. We are more likely to be standing on the top or sailing below. 📷 @egillari21
Happy brthday Veiga👏. Keep showing us how we can paddle against our life’s currents with a big smile. And let’s all keep playing outside, regardless of the conditions. @against_the_current_iceland

We do not pretend to know all the answers for how to combat climate change or protect our natural environment. Admittedly we are quite bewildered or confused and surely we will do many mistakes. But we are excited to ask questions and look for answers.
Globally we need a giant leap in innovation in how we deal with our energy needs and how we live in harmony with nature in the future. Here lie exciting and interesting projects for future generations and in a way fantastic adventures and exploration. Real adventure begins at the end of our comfort zone; it should be a journey from which you will certainly not come back as the same person. Come and join us for this adventure, whether it is by joining our trips or simply by participating in our discussions and dialogue from your home, we look forward to an awesome odyssey.

Since Aurora Arktika started inviting guests to play outside in 2006 we have focused on human-powered activities such as backcountry skiing, hiking, mountain running and kayaking and used our sailboats as movable huts. We like to believe that we take our role as caretakers of nature seriously and that our environmental footprint is limited. But is it really so? Should we not try harder? How important is WHERE we explore compared to HOW we explore?
We have decided that before the end of the year 2025 we will have stopped using fossil fuel or any other non-sustainable fuel on our boats. As of now we don´t know how this can best be done but we look forward to figure that out. We will start different projects to become more responsible with all other supplies that we use on our trips. Most exciting could be the delicious food we serve on our boats and how we can with creative development of recipes and processes continue to serve even more tasty and wholesome meals primarily from local sustainable ingredients. Last but not least we need to work with our guests to minimize the impact of travel to and from our homes. In all of this are many interesting challenges that we are willing to accept, not because they are easy but because it´s time for all of us to do the seemingly impossible. Photo by @bdixonb
Newyears-greetings from our good friend Veiga who in 2019 was the first person to paddle against the currents around Iceland. @against_the_current_iceland ”Happy new year everybody and thanks for the support in 2019. Looking forward all the adventures in 2020 🎉🎊”
