These two expeditions take place during the magic of Arctic summer, when the sun never sets, and the wildlife is at its fullest and most energetic. The MS Nordsterjenen is our expedition ship with an aura of nostalgia. Originally built in 1956, and extensively modernized in 2013 for exclusive Arctic sailing, it exudes maritime charm and history. This graceful, beautiful ship sails exclusively in Spitsbergen and along the Norwegian coast. With only 130 passengers at full capacity, you'll have a truly unique and intimate experience on the MS Nordstjernen and get extra close to untouched nature.
On these voyages we will take you to some of the most spectacular highlights of the Arctic. As well as an untouched wilderness, Spitsbergen is the epitome of biodiversity, where the tundra and towering glaciers herald a staggeringly rich array of natural and cultural treasures. Part of the Spitsbergen
experience is visiting diverse and fascinating settlements with a pioneering history and pioneering mentality such as Barentsburg, Longyearbyen, and Ny-Ålesund, each of which has a completely different atmosphere.
