In late winter the sun appears in all its glory, painting the landscape a dazzling white - freshness and warmth to invigorate the traveller.

On the open sea we stop the ship and move onto the ice. The feeling aroused by the deep, quiet sea under the ice below your feet is indescribable with words. The bolder amongst us can try ice swimming in the black water dressed in a water-tight thermal suit - extraordinary to look at, but completely safe!
All those who participate in the cruise receive as a memory of their trip a certificate of their involvement in icebreaking operations under Arctic conditions. A rare diploma of which you can justly be proud
