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.
