Our Mission

Onboard Aurora you gain access to some of the most remote and captivating places alongside expert guidance for backcountry skiing, kayaking, hiking, photography, wildlife watching and any other activity you may be looking for.

The Aurora offers the additional benefit of returning to a warm and dry boat where you can relax at the end of a great day exploring the Arctic. Gourmet meals from tasty and wholesome local ingredients will give you the energy needed for your outdoor activities.

In March to May we do backcountry skiing in the beautiful Hornstrandir wilderness area. In June and July we do kayaking, hiking and wildlife trips in Iceland’s Westfjords as well as expeditions to the island of Jan Mayen. In August and September we are in east Greenland. All trips based onboard Aurora.


Aurora-Arktika grew out of our passion for playing outdoors. Our love for the wild and beautiful lands of the Arctic and the North Atlantic led us to explore further on foot, on skis, by kayak and under sail.

Our mission is to share these experiences by allowing other people to encounter the same thrills and pleasures through exciting but fun and safe adventure holidays.

We stay true to our core values of silent travel, protection of the natural environment and respect of the local cultures.
