Description

For us, Isafjordur is the jumping stone into Icelands wilderness. Sailing into the Isafjardardjup it is very likely we will be met by some flukes from the many Humpback whales feeding on the rich plankton waters. Depending on the weather, Hesteyri could be our first stop. This abandoned village used to house over a hundred people, most working in the nearby whaling/herring factory. Then we sail to Nordurfjordur, which marks the end of the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve. In what better fashion could we rejoin civilization as to enjoy a refreshing visit to the hot pool.
The Puffin Island of Drangey is the next highlight of our voyage. We sail around the Arctic circle and the island of Grimsey. Akureyri is our last port of call. It has a buzzling little town and convenient airport. It makes it a good place to explore Iceland even further, by car bus plane or boat!

The Location

The Tecla was build in 1915 as a Ketch herring drifter. A fishing vessel that would roam the North Sea for weeks on end to fill her hull with barrels of herring. These Loggers were being build by the dozen in the early 1900’s. A design to carry as much fish as possible and still be the fastest of the fleet. The Tecla is known as one of those fast ones with authentic looks and a crew that knows her every inch. Sailing the Tecla means sailing a real classic beauty, but she is dressed for her time and game.
