With one week to go to Polar Bear's departure for the Arctic, Boogie and Marlies are working closely with the Polar Front team to get the boat ready and as self sufficient as possible for their 4 month trip up north!
The team did sea trials last week and finished some great improvements yet again to this fantastic yacht. Boogie and Marlies are very excited to take the yacht up north on some amazing Arctic sailing adventures. Their first stop will be the Shetland islands, where they will do some exploring, before continuing on North to Norway and cruise the world renowned Lofoten Islands.
From there they will sail to Jan Mayen, a volcanic island in the Arctic Ocean where the guests will go for a mountaineering trip and will be enjoying the local hot pools. Next stop is iconic Iceland, for some more exploring, a crew changeover and stock up on essentials. An important stop as from there Polar Bear will set sail to East Greenland (via Jan Mayen)!
Four weeks of adventure cruising in the breathtaking scenery of East Greenland will see them circumnavigating Milne Island and find new anchorages in this wild and mostly untouched part of the world.
