We are curious. We are restless. We are adventurers by nature. Experience it all on board the SKIRR Adventures High Latitudes expedition.

Under the power of sail, exploring pristine waters and imposing landscapes our journey to the high latitudes of the Arctic is pure exhilaration and not for the faint-hearted.

Your expedition voyage is divided into five legs. The 4,470 nautical mile round trip will take an estimated eight weeks during the height of summer, with crew arriving or departing at the changeover ports en route.

Adventure sailing is as much about your experience above and below deck as the destinations visited. You will be exploring some of the most remote, pristine waters on the planet, while honing your sailing skills on passage. As a member of the crew team you can also take on a key role such as helping prepare tasty, nutritious and hot meals, being team videographer, or navigating the stars under the magical night sky.

During each leg, while the yacht is moored, you’ll have the opportunity to explore closer to shore, and the extraordinary ice-scapes of the Icelandic and Greenland coasts.
