This expedition involves an exciting offshore passage deep inside the arctic circle. The journey to mainland Norway from Svalbard will take approx 6 days, sailing through the day and night in a watch system. We may encounter some challenging conditions on the crossing as well as some wonderful wildlife. But this expedition won’t just be about the sailing. As one of our ‘Clean Up The Arctic’ expeditions you will not only be taking on the challenge of a life time but playing a vital part in arctic ocean research. Conducting surveys of marine life, ocean debris and microplastics in a part of the ocean so remote that it is rarely visited never mind surveyed. Arriving in Norway you will have the satisfaction of both having completed a sailing passage that few people have achieved as well as the knowledge that you have help increase our understanding of this critical part of the ocean system.
