Aurora Arktika


Sailing, skiing, and exploring the fjords of Iceland; the Iceland Sailboat Skiing trip is the adventure of a lifetime!

"Sailing and skiing trip in the West Fjords"

Immerse yourself in the wild and beautiful landscapes of Iceland on this one-of-a-kind sailing and skiing trip. At the Hornstandir Nature Reserve, in the West Fjords of Iceland, just a few miles from the Arctic Circle, you can leave the world behind, spending your days skiing the snowy peaks and your nights resting at sea on the Expedition yacht AURORA.

On the Iceland Sailboat Skiing trip you’ll anchor each night in a different spot, traveling around the fjords finding the best powder. Each day you can look forward to 6 to 8 hours of skiing or snowboarding, but whenever you’re ready to rest, your boat will be waiting at the bottom of the hill. For a fun and relaxing break from a day of skiing you can also try kayaking.

"Snowboarding a few miles from the Arctic Circle"

Onboard the AURORA, you’ll enjoy gourmet meals and a cozy bunk, the perfect place to take in the beauty of the fjords and rest at the end of the day. At the end of this unforgettable journey, you have the option for another memorable experience, participating in the Fossavatn Ski Marathon, one of the longest running sporting events in Iceland and the biggest race in the country, with varying distances. You may also start your adventure with the race and join the sailing trip after.

There’s no place on earth quite like Iceland, and there’s no better way to experience this wild and beautiful land than by boat and by ski!
