Possible Northern Lights voyage

Northern Lights are something special, unique and very impressive. You can see the Northern Lights nights in a row and still be amazed by its beauty!

Next year we have a voyage that will take you from Nuuk, Greenland to Reykjavik, Iceland in 20 days in August / September. This is the ideal voyage for those wanting to see the Northern Lights on board the Tecla.

This ocean crossing between two amazing islands is ideal to combine sailing with some breathtaking stops in Greenland and the Reykjavik area. Northern lights are not guaranteed, but very likely!

Tecla sailing the Arctic

Sailing in Iceland, there is one place that is a must to visit. In her exploration of Iceland the Tecla has discovered Hornstrandir to be more then just amazingly beautiful. Hornstrandir is a nature reserve full of life, full of growing, melting, developing nature, that is so close you can almost touch it. Dropping anchor at the bottom of a high cliff, you will be able to go ashore with the dinghy and explore the glacier, walk past waterfalls, look at nesting birds and be amazed at the Arctic foxes that will keep playing with each other, even with you close by.

Just imagine waking up, taking a cup of coffee outside and when you look around, you are surrounded by nature, calm water, hardly a sound to be heard.

Most of the Iceland voyages the Tecla will make, will bring you to Hornstrandir. With bays at just a day sailing away and several anchorages close together, there is so much to explore!

But not just walks is what makes your voyage so amazing. The sailing, the quiet, the wind, the somtimes cold – sometimes sunny days and the new friends you can make on board, make it complete.
