In 1999, we preferred a polar motor boat to the sailboat that we had been using for 4 seasons. The wind conditions in “Spitsbergen” and in the “Lyngen Alps” are indeed generally weak and 80% of the movements were carried out with the engine. On the other hand, when “it blows”, it is far beyond what “pleasure sailing” requires and a sailboat is often damaged … Therefore, we opted for an old Danish polar boat, rich in history, designed and built to work in the maintenance of lighthouses and buoys in Greenland. All the constraints of condensation, water saving, overcrowding, heating, etc., inherent to the sailboat, are now forgotten. We also wanted to stay in a good compromise between comfort and prices.
For Spitsbergen The boat is really at the service of our objective: to make you discover the most interesting sites of Spitsbergen and make as many animal observations as possible. Adapted to navigation in ice, “Isbjørn II” allows us to approach glaciers more closely or to “rub shoulders” with drifting pack ice if it does us the honor of descending to the coast. Its modest size allows access to the most intimate sites.
