Description

If you want to live an experience that combines skiing and sailing in a paradise destination, I have the perfect tour for you!

Join me on this 7-day skiing and sailing adventure in the fjords of northwestern Iceland!

We depart from Isafjordur, in western Iceland, aboard the sailboat Aurora Arktika. We will sail through the Arctic Ocean to Iceland’s northwestern 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 skiing terrain is very versatile: it will be fun for beginners as well as for experts. Our guides are always discovering new descents: you will ski on slopes that have never been skied on before. We can also get quite close to the fauna that lives in the region: seals, foxes, swans and another 50 varieties of birds.

You’ll spend the first night in a hotel in Reykjavík. The next day you will fly to Isafjordur and meet us at the Port. We will set up and board the Aurora Arktika.

The following five days are for sailing and skiing in the fjords. You will also have the opportunity to 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 skiing and sailing adventure in Iceland, I invite you to contact me. I will be glad to guide you to discover this wonderful and completely off-the-beaten-path region!

About the guide

Raphael

Mountain Leader

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 was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
