        Aurora Arktika was born out of a longing to share nature’s wonders in a way that preserves the environment and respects local cultures.Our journeys offer unparalleled access to pristine beauty, with the safety and comfort of an arctic sailboat as basecamp. I've been immersed in the mountains and oceans around his native Ísafjörður all my life. I'm a Naval Architect and Ocean Yachtmaster and have been skippering the Aurora since 2006.
