It comes with the possibilities of a strong wind, big waves,
low temperature, and offshore passages for a couple of days.

of the challenges are: two offshore passages, fogs while approaching the border of the cold current, and navigating between the icebergs.
Not the easiest stuff, but nothing too tiring.
