ON A JOURNEY WITH THE SCHOONER ACTIV
Navigating the unexplored waters of Greenland up to the northern part of the East coast, where no ship has ever gone, the Activ strives to sail where no one has ever sailed, whether it be the icy coasts of the North, or the tropical beaches of the southern hemisphere. This top gallant schooner carries a crew of scientists, artists and sailors, that come together and exchange new ideas and different perspectives.
To lead the Activ there is Captain Jonas Bergsøe, on board since 2002. During his time on the ship, he has sailed towards both deserted exotic islands, as well as under the northern lights in Greenland, setting new world records and creating a dynamic refuge that eventually generated artworks and science data. “We do it, not because it is easy, we do it because we can. Life is about extraordinary experiences.”
“WHAT CAN MAKE LIFE EXTRAORDINARY IS WHEN YOU MANAGE TO NOT FOLLOW THE BEATEN TRACK BUT MAKE A PATH FOR OTHERS TO FOLLOW, TO GO WHERE IT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT TO GO.”
Those who embark with the Activ are those who have the urge to think out of the box, to explore new ideas and to not only collect destinations, but also to live deeply in the experiences. "The mind is telling you this is insane, what are you doing. Eventually you learn that you can trust. If you trust yourself, then you can be up here."
