After a fantastic ski-sail season - summer is here.  We are enjoying nice sunny weather day after day and have already started with our summer program. Aurora is doing a few trips in the Westfjords before she goes to Greenland in end of July.

Check out the two options:

Hornstrandir - the Wild Life is really "best-of" the area. We stop by at Vigur island, at Hesteyri, Aðalvík and last but not least we spend two night in Hornvík. 

Quest for the Arctic Fox is another trip where we focus on observing the foxes of Hornstrandir. This is the only area in Iceland where the Arctic Fox is fully protected and a perfect place to visit these friend of ours.

Both of these trips are suitable for people of all ages and with different interests. We always have options of sailing, hiking/walking, kayaking and simply enjoying the landscape and cultural history of this magnificent area.

Please don´t hesitate to contact us for further information.

Welcome to the website for Borea Adventures, Iceland, your number one stop for Arctic adventures in high latitudes. We provide great adventures and expeditions in Iceland, Greenland, East Greenland, Jan Mayen and Svalbard (Spitzbergen), mainly using our spacious yacht, the Aurora. Our philosophy is to make our trips as silent as possible where we minimize the use of motorized power and encourage physical activities, whether sea kayaking, climbing, sailing, walking and hiking, wildlife, ski touring and backcountry skiing for beginners, experts and people of all ages. The North Atlantic is our playground and we offer scheduled trips for individuals and groups as well as customized itineraries and charter for groups. We travel in harmony with the wildlife of the area: Arctic Foxes, Birds, Seals, Whales and Polar Bears. Aurora is a sturdy expedition yacht and was raced four times around the globe as part of the Clipper Round the World yacht race under the ownership of Sir Robin Knox-Johnston. She gives us a great opportunity to provide Arctic adventures in areas that are hard to reach otherwise. We call her our floating basecamp. Our name is derived from Greek mythology where Boreas was the god of the north wind. Aurora on the other hand was the Roman rosy-fingered goddess of dawn. Aurora Borealis is a name for the Northern lights which are common in our area. As we humans have proven through the decades, names can be hard to remember. Especially if a bit of alcohol gets passed around the galley too many times! You might spell our name Boreal Adventures, Borial Adventures, Borea Adventrues and Borealis Adventures. Thank you for visiting Borea Adventures.
