The Arctic

The interest in sailing the waters in the Arctic has risen rapidly in recent years. Considering the possibilities for transit through the Northeast and the Northwest Passage, as well as the huge commercial potential there is in future extraction of raw materials and the development in the region at large, the interest in the area is of no surprise.

However, shipping in the Arctic is still relatively limited reserved to a few specialised pioneers and shipping companies specialising in ice navigation.
