As reported yesterday, Thór will then embark on a journey around the country with stopovers in various harbors to give locals the chance to take a look at the new Coast Guard cruiser.

The arrival of Thór marks a milestone in the safety of fishermen and patrolling of Icelandic waters in regards to protection of the country’s resources, fisheries supervision, legal supervision and search and rescue.
