    Overview

    CHALLENGING SAIL FROM ICELAND TO WEST GREENLAND

    This exclusive trip spans from Ísafjörður in Iceland over to the southernmost tip of Greenland and continuing to Nuuk on the West coast of Greenland. Depending on weather and sea conditions, each voyage of this adventure will offer something new and different.

    The itinerary will be based on the position of the ice sheet and weather. It will for sure be challenging and that’s why this trip is only for those ready to participate in the sail itself. We will look for exclusive anchorages, get on firm land when possible and explore the South and West of Greenland.

    This one-of-a-kind trip offers ample opportunities for hiking and kayaking in areas very rarely seen by the outside world.

    Accommodations

    • Aurora

      is a former racing yacht that has been around the world four times. Under its previous name, Antiope, it was commanded a number of times by Sir Robin Knox-Johnson, the founder of Clipper Adventures and the first man to singlehandedly sail around the world non-stop.

      Originally built for fifteen crewmembers, she has been thoughtfully outfitted for sailing excursions that comfortably accommodate eight guests and two crew members (ten single berths) with spacious communal areas and a galley.

      The boat offers central heating, hot and cold water, two heads (toilets), one shower, and 220V electricity capable of charging batteries and other electronic devices.

    • SETTLE IN COMFORTABLY

      While sailing vessels are fairly simple and utilitarian by nature, Aurora has been outfitted to ensure comfortable accommodations and spacious communal areas for our guests. Onboard amenities include central heating, hot and cold water, two bathrooms, a shower, and electricity for charging electronic devices.
