This trip is a true Arctic Expedition to the beautiful Hornstrandir Nature Reserve in the West Fjords of Iceland—only a few miles from the Arctic Circle. We will focus on backcountry skiing between remote fjords, anchoring in a different harbour each night. Many of the mountains and ridges have never been skied before, giving our girls opportunities for first descents!
We will spend 6-8 hours in the mountains each day, for those who prefer shorter days, girls can simply ski down to the anchored boat when they so choose with their guides.
The expedition yacht Aurora is our movable ‘backcountry hut’ and awaits us at the end of every day with gourmet meals by Siggi (our boat Captain), warm and comfortable bunks, and fun!
