7 nights on board the schooner in made up beds with shared facilities, 2 nights hotel in Reykjavik.
All breakfasts, 7 lunches and 7 dinners included.
The trip is not challenging unless you want it to be. You can simply unwind and relax surrounded by the beautiful landscape. There will be opportunities to do some easy to moderate walks (always accompanied by a leader) in various areas, and if you wish to you can also help the crew on board while sailing. No specific preparations or skills are required for the trip itself, all you need is good spirit and a love of nature and adventure!
Although a good level of fitness is not required for this trip, you do need to be able to climb up and down the stairs and walk on the deck of the schooner confidently, as well as go from the boat onto the zodiac easily.
We offer this sailing trip in conjunction with our local partners, and Exodus participants will join an international group, not all of whom have booked through Exodus.
Normal group size and age
Min. 1, max. 12 Minimum age 18.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
Designed for people who are in good health, enjoy the outdoors and want a relaxing trip packed with interest.
Exodus is always looking to improve our current itineraries and to offer something different. With many new trips this year, there is something unique and different to try every year.
Polar Expedition: At the ends of the earth and far from the madding crowd, the Polar Regions are perhaps the last pristine wildernesses left on the planet.
Wildlife: Trips may be wholly wildlife focused, or contain an element of wildlife viewing within a less specific itinerary.
Wilderness: Visit the deserts, jungles, plateaux, tundra and mountains of all seven continents, including Antarctica.
Expedition Voyages and other cruise itineraries. These holidays can feature expeditions to the Polar regions, voyages down great rivers such as the Nile or discovering the secrets of Darwin’s Enchanted Islands.
