Hovercraft Pack Ice Tour
You meet the guide and get a briefing of the tour and the archipelago over a cup of warm beverage. We put on our intercom and get into the hovercraft. The exact way out depends on the ice-conditions, but our main goal for the day is the pack ice fields of the outer archipelago. Here the wind pushes the ic etogether into piles of broken ice – icebergs. The scenario differs from week to week, but sometimes we have more than 10 meter high walls of ice. By the Island of Brändöskär we step out to take a walk on the ice and have a look into the old Chapel on the Island. Here, on the Island, we also serve a light meal with warm beverage to enjoy. If we are lucky we also have a fair chance to spot seals or sea eagles during our trip.
