Anne-Margaretha:
Tromsö (NO) - Bear Island (NO) - Longyearbyen (SJ)

02 June - 13 June 2021

Course: Svalbard! Board Anne-Margaretha in Tromso and sail to the famous island of Svalbard (Spitsbergen), stopping along the way on remote Bear Island. Weather permitting you might be able to earn your “Nude swimming in Arctic water” certificate. On the next leg to Svalbard you might even see whales, and once you reach the island there’s a chance to see polar bears, reindeer and arctic foxes. Depending on the conditions you should be able to visit a couple of places before sailing to Longyearbyen. The plan is to get there on the 12th or the 13th, but it’s best to book your flight for the evening just in case. Or better yet – book Longyearbyen Camping spot right at the airport and spend the unforgettable night with a view before flying out the next day. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years (younger Windseekers on request, when accompanied by an adult).

Ports

Only 2000 km from the North Pole Tromsö is the capital of Norway’s high north, home to 70 000 inhabitants who live on the edge of the Arctic. This well operated cruise destination is positioned in a spectacular setting between islands, iconic fjords and mountain peaks, midway between the North Cape and Lofoten Islands.

Longyearbyen is a capital of Norwegian Svalbard archipelago, located on the Spitsbergen island. If you want to experience the arctic climate, although tempered by a warm current, Spitsbergen is the place to visit. Look for seabirds, reindeer and marine mammals but watch out for polar bears! Don’t be fooled by the town’s remote location and small size: you can find there two museums, art galleries and a cinema.

    "IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO STEER FOR HOURS WHEN THE WIND WAS BLOWING AND EVEN WHEN IT WAS COMPLETELY DEAD. I LOVED TO SEE THE SEA, I LOVED THE SILENCE OF THE OCEAN."

    "When anchored at sea in the sun, I had not a care in the world"

    "The nicest moment was arriving to Cadiz, when we sat on the mast with the entire team, wearing our team shirts and singing loudly to let people know we're coming."
