Thank you for all the moments, opportunities and adventure at the end of the earth.
“Even in the harshest environments you can find pristine moments like these. In the stillness of the sea you begin to become apart of the environment .. everything connects. This is maybe one reason why we venture across the world to some of the coldest and most remote places on earth. To find these rare moments, the ones that aren’t meant to last.” @chrisburkard
“The level of subconscious peer pressure that exists on a sailboat in the arctic is pretty hilarious. Picture a bunch of people saying “no way I’m jumping in there.” Sure enough one person sends it and within minutes everyone’s running below deck for their bathing suits and the party’s on. Seriously fascinating bit of raw human behavior on display.” 📷 @marksolon
The Aurora crew and guests are not all who you would expect. These two were enjoying the Greenland scenery last summer. 📷 @pedrao #visitgreenland #arctic #greenland #highlatitudesailing
“A magical moment with @auroraarktika , when the #aurora decided to make an appearance after dinner one night, much to the delight of our passengers. Interesting thing about trying to capture the #northernlights with an exposure exceeding 10 seconds (second pic) while on a #sailboat: The boat's movement is drawn by the stars , in this case a slight movement to the side along with some bobbing up and down, apparently. #iceland #westfjords #hornstrandir” 📷 @rebekkagudleifs

This was truly an amazing journey in my life, in what is definitely the most beautiful country in the world.
“Winters are great and all, I must admit though that I can't wait for summer. Here is one from last summer in the mighty West-fjords of Iceland.
We spent 6-days on a sailboat from @auroraarktika, exploring the undiscovered trails around there. I was lucky to have a great crew to guide around.” @gestur_thor .
A rare encounter, Arktika meeting Aurora in Nansen Fjord. East Greenland is such a vast area that it is quite unusual that we see other boats, let alone our own. @avdlphoto #visitgreenland #arctic #greenland #discover_earth #arcticyachting #highlatitudesailing
Yeah, we are always attracted to the arches in the large icebergs. Kind of cool we think! 📷 @chris_michel #arctic #visitgreenland #exploremore #icebergs
Little bit windswept snow in Hornstrandir last week but what a great start of the season. 📷 @okolbeinn #hornstrandir #arctic #backcountryskiing #skiing
The good ship Aurora is back on her favorite stomping grounds. Every spring since 2006 she has been a favorite basecamp and restaurant for hundreds of lucky skiers. Here she sits quietly at the anchorage in front of Einbúi mountain. 📷 @okolbeinn
“We’re back on land and missing the boat already! Thanks @auroraarktika for an amazing adventure! More pics to come...” @mooseheadmonster
“The sun was breaking through the clouds on this beautiful day in east Greenland. We had been paddling for couple of hours when some of ladies in the group had go to land and stretch their legs and it was then I noticed a hole trough the small iceberg how was lying on the beach and captured this picture.” @against_the_current_iceland .

“Participatory photography assignments are some of my favourite - that is packing light and being prepared to run, swim, bike, freeze, suffer, break things all in the name of keeping up with your subjects and getting the shot. What's not to like right?
So when @thuletrails rounded up a group of us, including the bearded ultra runner @robkrar go and explore the North West tip of Iceland by foot and sea, I smiled from earhole to asshole.
This is one place we found on the trip - dang! The northwest tip of Iceland is the remotest part of the country. The area has been uninhabited for more than 60 years and has allowed the wilderness to flourish. With no roads, this area is only accessible by sea. Exploratory running bliss” 📷 @kelvintrautman
