Sigurdur “Siggi” Jonsson has been immersed in the mountains and oceans around his native Ísafjörður all his life.He is a Naval Architect and Ocean Yachtmaster and has been skippering Aurora since 2006 and Arktika since 2016. His work and play has taken him all over the world – from skiing in Canada and climbing in the Alps, to kayaking in Greenland and sailing in Antarctica. His passion for the lands and cultures of the Arctic and North Atlantic is second only to his enthusiasm about sharing them with new friends.
Born & raised in Northern Norway among reindeers and high mountain plateaus, I raise Alaskan huskies and guide long dogsledding trips across Scandinavia since 25 years.I founded my company in 1998. Nature lover, I always had a strong relation with life outdoors. I share my days with my sweetheart and 2 young ones. We spend plenty of time on sleds, skis and in cabins exploring our beautiful region. I am a certified ranger & canoe instructor, educated in outdoor activities, and I ran 5 times the longest sled-dog race in Europe, the Finnmarksløpet. I look forward to show you Northern Norway!
