Who is this trip for?

From a physical perspective this trip has a real mix of active options because you can essentially take part in as much or little as you like. There are loads of opportunities for kayaking, hiking and getting out on the SUP. The boat and operators were born out of our desire to share nature’s wonders in a way that protects the environment and respects local cultures and their journeys offer unparalleled access to pristine beauty with the added comfort and safety of a base ship. If that sounds like your idea of heaven, well, this trip is suitable for you!

Additional notes

Even with the best planning, weather can be unpredictable, so it is always best to be prepared for unexpected conditions. A basic equipment guide is provided below, however, requirements may vary by trip. Additionally, specific activities – like diving, hiking, kayaking, skiing, etc. – have unique equipment requirements.

Tour operator

The company grew out of a passion for playing outdoors, a love for the wild and beautiful lands of the Arctic and the North Atlantic and a desire to explore further on foot, on skis, by kayak and under sail. They're dedicated to  sharing these experiences by allowing other people to encounter the same thrills and pleasures through exciting but fun and safe adventure holidays.

We love their core values of silent travel, protection of the natural environment and respect of the local cultures.

Using expedition sailboats as motherships or mobile backcountry huts, offers a unique opportunity to explore otherwise inaccessible parts of the Arctic across Iceland, Greenland and Jan Mayen.
