The icebreaker

Welcome aboard Argus

Argus, the icebreaker, is named after the giant in Greek mythology. The ship is a maneuverable, robust and reliable icebreaker modified to make passengers’ stay on board as comfortable as possible.

Argus is the perfect vessel to go into the narrow icefjords of Greenland, sail past icebergs and power through the ice.
