Join us in Norway, onboard the expedition sailing vessel Barba, days away from departing to sail back into the Arctic and the icepack. This will be challenging adventure exploring ice, orcas, humpback and blue whales. Last year, S.V. Barba sailed 6000 nautical miles (10 000 km) from Stavanger, Norway to the pack ice around the North Pole and back, stopping in London on the way. The purpose of the expedition was to explore the polar Atlantic ecosystem, assess its current health and highlight its vulnerability to climate change and pollution.
