Navigating the icy landscape of Prins Christian Sund
Chances of observing wildlife
Explorers have no certainties, but the ability to adapt and the will to discover. Dealing with uncertainty and learning to take advantage of it is the very essence of any expedition.
Sailing off the beaten track in waters seldom visited, even modern expedition ships have to face challenges that ancient explorers had faced for centuries. Coasts without natural harbours, anchorages exposed to wind and swell, beaches washed by surf, or sudden changes on the weather conditions, determined in the past and still determine the course today, the landings and achievements of the expedition.
On our Exploration Days, flexibility and adaptation to the ever-changing circumstances of the environment are the order of the day. That’s when explorers get the best out of themselves, when Hurtigruten’s years of experience in remote waters combine to generate extraordinary plans at the pace imposed by nature.
Trust us, enjoy the feeling of uncertainty, and experience a day of pioneer-style exploration!
Please note: Navigating Prince Christian Sund is dependent on sea ice conditions.
