Archilux: A cruise ship for Finnish lakes, archipelago and coastal region
The cruise business is booming and increasingly, large numbers of expedition cruises take passengers to the most remote locations on Earth. So why is Europe’s largest lake district with pure water and the natural beauty of the world’s largest archipelago still missing from the cruise maps?
In response to this question, the Archilux takes its guests on an adventure through sensitive nature in Finland. Environmental friendliness has been taken into consideration in every detail, from power production and lightweight structures to all the activities that happen onboard.
The concept for the ship was originally designed for Finland’s 100th anniversary, as part of a showroom for Finnish inventions. The ship encourages Finns to look at what is close to them and also raises awareness of their environment.
