Come with a certified guide to the remote wilderness of a classic European island and explore the pristine nature of Iceland by land and sea on a six-day skiing and sailing expedition.
Iceland is an amazing country with a compelling landscape. Historic and isolated, just venturing to its geological treasures is a treat. Getting to explore these natural jewels is a dream come true, and your program is the best possible way to get the most from your experience.
The isolated Westfjords Region is the perfect place to delve into the backcountry culture of this beautiful country. Its sparse population and stunning terrain make it the epitome of a wilderness adventure. It covers roughly 40 percent of the country’s entire coastline, cutting in and out along the ocean to create an extraordinary environment.
We will travel by sailboat around the glacial valleys of the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve and select only the best routes and runs for incomparable backcountry skiing. The reserve is accessible exclusively by foot and boat, so the experience will be personal. The virgin runs of untouched snow mean you can be the first person to ever ski across the powder!
Jokulfirdir – glacial fjords created by the Drangajokull Glacier – are a life-changing sight, and the evocative ups and downs of the accompanying terrain are sure to impress. All your days will begin and end in the “Donna Wood” – an accommodating wooden sailboat that includes a deck saloon, roomy cabins with closets and wash basins, and functioning showers and toilets. It is the only way to travel in this pristine environment and defines the Icelandic experience.
Basing our trip out of an agile sailing vessel allows us uncompromised access to an unusually beautiful and remote masterpiece of nature. I am excited to share this rare opportunity with you and to give you the safe, enjoyable, and fulfilling program you have always wanted.
Because of its isolated location, you should have a high level of proficiency in backcountry skiing and be in good physical condition. This sustained journey affords comfortable evenings on a boat, but still requires previous backcountry experience and the mental fortitude to complement it.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
