Sailing expeditions


Hrimfare – an iconic 67’ yacht from the Global Challenge westward circumnavigation race heritage sailing "the wrong way" against prevailing winds and current. That means she was built in solid steel to be tough. The yacht class is entitled to a reputation as the safest yachts ever raced the oceans. Today's Hrimfare started off as "Hofbrau" in the race 1992/93 and came 3rd and as "Toshiba" in the race 1996/97 and came second. After that, she has sailed twice around the world. You are now welcome to sail this iconic racer, now extensively up-cycled to a modern research vessel together with us...and on new endeavors and expeditions.

Workshops onboard and on land

We carry advanced showcase equipment and materials onboard for pop-up educational sessions, workshops, and seminars on the docks. All are accessible to a local audience where we stop – children, teens, schools, business community members, influencers, and politicians. Our workshops are based on comprehensive studies, insights, and experiences from life on, in and around our coastlines. 

Think Tanks and Team-building

We are scientists and sailors and invite groups of up to 10 people to hop onboard and participate in unique living lab and think tank experiences. We provide safe, comfortable, private and well-established facilities onboard Hrimfare and suitable locations at our stop-overs. Informal and friendly team building experiences for management teams, board members, developing teams, or just a bunch of friends or colleagues searching for a unique experience with a built-in purpose.

Hrimfare has room for 12 people onboard overnight and when voyages and expeditions are settled we offer empty positions to crew members with a cost cover package. Look into our calendar or subscribe to our Hrimfare Expedition newsletter in order to see the available positions and stretches.
