About the workshop
We invite you on an unusual journey to Westfjords, Iceland — a distant region very much off the tourist-beaten path that feels like the ends of the earth.
Our journey will begin in Rejkjavik. First we’ll travel to Ísafjörður, the capital of Westfjords , and then the Aurora, a 60-ft yacht, will tak us on a six-day voyage through the Atlantic. We’ll sail on a rare course, open only two months out of twelve during Miðnætursól, Midnight Sun — a time of the year when the sun never quite sets in Iceland.
We’ll visit Hornstrandir Peninsula, a natural preserve humans have abandoned over 60 years ago. It’s a stern and wildly beautiful place even for Iceland, with gorgeous fjords, hammering ocean waves, rapid weather changes, blooming meadows and bare rocks, black-sand beaches, abandoned villages, valleys and mountains — nature in its pristine serenity. We’ll see fjords that rise like great black crests from the ocean, where snow never melts, and towering cliffs dotted with birds, fast upland rivers, an old graveyard, a whaling station, desolate plateaus and waterfalls.
During the trip we’ll live on the yacht, putting in occasionally to go on shore for hiking and photography. We’ll enjoy freedom from civilization, which can only be found in such remote corners of the world, and as a little bonus all who sign up will receive a copy of the photo album with the best pictures from the trip.
Important: Single accommodation is available only in Rejkjavik and Ísafjörður. All yacht cabins are twins.
