Overview

Explore Iceland's most remote fjordscape

This trip to a new destination in Iceland, Arnarfjörður, is a dream come true for those looking to sail and explore. Depending on weather and sea conditions, each voyage of this adventure will vary.

The itinerary includes a full day of sailing, where we go out of Ísafjörður harbor, sail out of the fjord and pass by several fjords on our way to Arnarfjörður. The itinerary also includes visit to one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland, Dynjandi. We make our way to the natural hot pool in Reykjafjörður to soak in before we visit an abandoned fjord which can only be accessed by boat.

This trip is suitable for those interested in sailing and exploring.

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
