Incredible landscapes, sailing, waterfalls, geysers, and glaciers! We will see Iceland from the sea and explore it from the shore!
Iceland is a magical land. There is a feeling that you are on another planet, and not in the north of Europe! We want to repeat it again! Here is the third expedition to the country of glaciers, lava fields, waterfalls, and geysers.
It is possible to have a family expedition. We conduct it on yachts for the sixth year in a row, we know from experience that a sea voyage on a yacht with active training and participation in the life of a boat is a complete change in the usual routine for adults and children, a replacement for boring package tourism. Family regattas are an opportunity to live a new emotional experience of traveling together with a child. There are no passive roles here.
The voyage will be comfortable for children 6 years and up.
We offer three options for traveling around the country:
HOW DO WE LIVE?
Children and parents live on boats in comfortable double cabins.
For 5 cabins there are 3 bathrooms with showers and hot water (depending on the model of a boat). Each boat has its own kitchen, where we cook breakfasts and dinners with the freshest products purchased in shops and local port markets. We have dinners in picturesque restaurants onshore.
WHAT IS IN IT FOR YOU?
By the end of the trip, parents and children will know what the work of a sailor, a boatswain, a skipper, a radio operator, an assistant captain is, as well as what is the bowline, how to knit fenders, give and receive moorings and shout “the anchor is clear” when we start sailing. In addition to a new experience and vivid memories, you will make new friends. And not only children but their parents will have them! Yachting unites entire families around the world who are happy to visit each other and meet at new regattas!
