    "Peter I" yacht is passing by icebergs in the waters of the island of Greenland as part of the expedition of the Rusarc's Expedition.

    The Rusarc company was established in 2009 to increase the popularity of maritime tourism in Russia, attract public attention to Arctic environmental problems and develop the sport of yachting.

    The company used to launch expeditions in the High Arctic, as well as cruise excursions near the coast of Norway and seems to be the most experienced of its kind.
    The 18-metre-long "Peter- I" yacht, constructed in 1992, is sailing along the coastline of the world's largest island and exploring the wonders of the Greenlandish towns of Nuuk, Nanortalik, and Ilulissat.
    Greenland is very famous for its icebergs which consist of heavily compacted snow that fell on its ice cap several thousand years ago.
