The MS Spitsbergen and MS Fram will take you on a voyage beyond the ordinary.

The MS Spitsbergen is named after the crown jewel of Arctic Norway – the Spitsbergen archipelago. After complete reconstruction, MS Spitsbergen rejoined the Hurtigruten fleet in 2016. The ship features high technical standards as well as comfortable, modern public areas and cabins. 

The MS Fram was built in 2007 to honor the legacy of the original MS Fram, known for her great expeditions. The new MS Fram follows in this tradition. She is designed for icy waters and exploration, while keeping comfort and safety a priority.

Both ships have their own onboard Expedition Team and serve as a university at sea. Interesting lectures inside the ship as well as out on the sun deck make this an exciting and educational journey. Topics depend on the season and the waters we sail in. The dedicated Expedition Teams have one mission: to enhance your experience by engaging you and interpreting the nature, wildlife, and culture you encounter during the voyage.

View Itinerary

Embark on an epic expedition in the Arctic Circle that begins in Longyearbyen and continues by circumnavigating Svalbard with the MS Fram, taking in the sights of two national parks and a nature reserve through excursions on land and sea. With more polar bears on Svalbard than humans, we hope to spot one. Our journey continues to Jan Mayen, a remote island that very few have the privilege of visiting. Across the Norwegian Sea, Iceland is waiting to show off its fjords and flora. Our journey culminates in Reykjavik, the small capital with a big heart that mixes tradition and innovation.
