Welcome aboard S/V Linden! She is a classic sailing vessel well equipped to take you on an adventure in the high Arctic. This schooner is built with love and funding from thousands of supporters in Åland in 1993 as a replica of the original Linden of 1920. She is the biggest wooden schooner in Europe. Linden is made for sailing the cold Baltic Sea, and her ice-strengthened hull enables her to take on the sea ice in Svalbard waters.
Inside Linden, there are two lounges with plenty of windows, so you can watch the nature and spot wildlife even at mealtimes. We gather in the bar lounge for meals, briefings and lectures. It comfortably fits guests and crew; this is a perfect place to hang out with your fellow passengers. There is also a library lounge on board, where the bookshelves are filled with polar literature.
You are guaranteed an exclusive experience; Linden offers 5 twin cabins with private bathroom and 2 single cabins with shared bathroom for overnight sails. All rooms are inside cabins. An efficient ventilation system provides good options for drying your expedition gear.
Having been built in Finland there is, of course, a good size sauna on board. This is the perfect place to warm up after hours on deck or after a dip in the sea.
