The S/V Linden

The original Linden was built in 1920 — this faithful replica was constructed 26 years ago, and is the largest 3-mast wooden schooner sailing Europe today.

The S/V Linden is fitted with an ice-strengthened hull and 350 square meters of sail, to safely power through frozen seas at over 12 knots.
Svalbard is a remote, extreme place of permafrost and midnight sun — aboard the Linden, it’s hard not to fall under its spell.

The S/V Linden, October 2019

Photography by Bryan Derballa

On our recent adventure in Norway, we joined the crew of the S/V Linden, the largest 3-mast wooden schooner still in operation in Europe. Under the watchful eye of Captain Rasmus Jacobsen and his crew, we spent four days on the ship, plunging through the stormy seas of Svalbard. The violent winds and icy fjords provided a dramatic backdrop to the trip, sparking the crew’s passion for the Arctic — a passion that’s tangible to everyone who joins one of their extraordinary voyages.
