If possible you will then sail on to other beautiful places – the locations will depend on time and weather conditions. Expect to see flowery fields, arctic foxes with their cubs, nesting birds and very possibly – whales. . Art supplies available on board for an additional fee (up to EUR 100 per person). Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

Isafjordur (meaning ‘fjord of ice’) is a small port town in the northwest of Iceland. It is a major access point to the nature reserve on the Hornstrandir Peninsula, an uninhabited wilderness area to which ferries run weekly during summer. Despite its small population of 2600 people, the town has a relatively urban feel. It is considered a centre for alternative music and there’s even a hospital. Have a look around in the Maritime museum or go for a tour of the waterfalls and the nearby fjords.
