All the vessels are made for use in ice and can handle the amounts of ice we sometimes experience in Svalbard. Some of the vessels are more extreme than others.

No matter what, the main purpose with using any of our ships is to give the customer a great experience from the High Arctic around Svalbard. We are one of the most experienced Svalbard tour operators in this category.
