Met this #arcticfox in the innermost part of Hesteyrarfjörður three days ago, during my third trip with @auroraarktika .  Most likely a pregnant female.ö #iceland #westfjords #jökulfirðir. repost from @rebekkagudleifs

No shortage of interesting weather in Hornstrandir this season.  The people who join us for our skiing trips are true expeditioners who enjoy exploring this fantastic area no matter what the weather throws at us.  Horizontal rain, blowing snow, icy mountains... this all make for so much more exciting stories to tell around the dinner table in the warm and cozy cabin in the evening.  And yes, we also do like the calm and sunny days.

Repost from @chrisburkard After hiking 23 km over a Fjord in Greenland, the Arktika was a welcome sight. Arktika is a Dutch built ketch-rigged oceangoing sailingyacht that is fully equipped and certified to sail around the world. The hull shape is directly derived from the famous Colin Archer which is known for good sailing characteristics in northern waters. I’ve  learned a lot about this boat during the weeks I’ve spent living on it. I don’t consider myself much of a sailor or even a seaworthy person at heart but I’m always happy to call this home.

Repost from @keelyscamp We experienced every type of weather this week, rain, relentless wind, whiteouts, sleet, and snow. We had half our camp seasick blowing chunks off the side of the ship and then skiing moments later. The girls were resilient, positive, and so tough. We decided as a team that no matter the weather we were going out to play. On the last day Iceland gave us pristine weather and made everything we pushed through during our week that much better. Here are the girls on the bootpack. @blizzardskis @tecnicaskiboots @stiomountain @auroraarktika : @lindsaymann17 .

Repost from @roam There are easier ways to wake yourself up in the morning... but that’s not really the point now is it. @ritonkulous aboard the @auroraarktika in remote Greenland. I’ve had many journeys on this boat in the last few years and every one has left me hungry for more.⠀

Some years we are lucky to be able to explore some new skiing terrain on the north side of the Hornstrandir peninsula.  Here we are standing on top of the great birdcliffs of Hælavíkurbjarg looking across Hornvík bay.  Photo by @thomaswoodson
