Come with Raphael, IFMGA certified mountain guide, to this stunning 7-day riding and sailing trip in the northwestern fjords of Iceland.
Jan, Feb, Mar, Dec
If you want to live an experience that combines snowboarding and sailing in a paradise destination, I have the perfect program for you! Join me on this 7-day riding and sailing adventure in the fjords of northwestern Iceland.
We will sail across the Arctic Ocean to Iceland’s northwest peninsula, away from the crowds. This is one of the most beautiful areas in the country and the only way to get here is by boat. Its mountains, fjords and bays will leave you in awe. It is probably the quietest landscape you will ever visit.
The terrain is very versatile: both skiers and snowboarders will enjoy it. Our guides are always discovering amazing new, virgin-snow slopes. We can also get quite close to the fauna that lives in the region: seals, foxes, swans and 50 bird species.
You will have five full days dedicated to sailing and riding in the fjords. You can also practice kayaking or paddleboarding. At the end of each day, the Aurora Arktika will be waiting for us with excellent food and warm and comfortable beds.
So, if you are interested in a great riding and sailing experience in Iceland, please contact me! Let me show you all the secrets of this wonderful region.
And if you are looking for a different adventure, check out my 7-day heliboarding in the Kaçhar Mountains, Turkey.

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide since 2003
The mountain brought us together in the 90's and currently it also brings us together with my guide friends: Stéphane, Christian and Jean Luc, who is mountain leader.
Our passion has allowed us to do a great job: being mountain guides.
After having guided for over 10 years in Verbier, we decided to establish a guide's office that allows us to sell trips, ski touring days, heliskiing here and elsewhere, mountaineering, and all those things that are possible to do with a mountain guide.
We are also colleagues in the specialized team of rescuers "Maison FXB Rescue" and it is with pleasure that we offer advanced training courses, avalanche courses, crevasse rescue, the management of injured people…
From all this, the main objective is to enjoy as much time as we can in the mountain with you in the most beautiful places in the world with a single slogan: “Safety!”
It will be a pleasure to share a moment with you!

I skied twice with Raphi. He is a very cautious guide with a very good knowledge about the snow conditions. He is very nice and always positive.
