Did the 6-day Lost Fjords backpacking trip with Borea and couldn't be happier with that choice. Professional, safe, accommodating and cheerful, it was a fantastic experience to explore the beautiful Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. Borea has a welcoming basecamp in Hornvik too, which added some comforts to the trip. Wonderful memories that will stay with us from this trip!

We had an amazing 4 day kayaking trip with Borea in Hornstrandir! We've done kayaking trips around the world but this was one of the most professional and well-run operations we've ever seen

Our tour guide Ronya was amazing, the gear was top notch and the itinerary they had put together was truly special - especially their lodge in Hornstrandir is super charming and in such a picturesque, remote place! (+ foxes visited every day! :-)

From Borea Adventures

Borea is a fully licensed adventure guiding company  based in Ísafjörður in the heart of the Westfjords of Iceland.

The founders of Borea have always recognized the great potential of adventure tourism surrounding their home, yet little was being done to encourage it. They wanted to let people enjoy their home environment in the same way they had done since they were young.

Borea was created in 2006 and focuses on both short day trips for everyone and exclusive expeditions to remote corners in the Arctic.

The company is operated by sailors, climbers, skiers, and sea kayakers that find their inspiration in the unique wilderness that surrounds them.

All our guides are local Icelanders and good friends that have designed each trip to operate in full harmony with nature.

Borea Adventures is run by Rúnar Karlsson and Nanný Arna Guðmundsdóttir. They are both born in Ísafjörður and living there. They have years of experience in all sorts of outdoor activities in Iceland and know the Westfjords like the back of their hand. The company only hires guides with thorough knowledge in backcountry skiing, sea kayaking, hiking and that have great respect for the natural environment.
