VESSEL INFORMATION

Our Vessel was built in 1953 for theSwedish maritime administration as a working vessel in the Baltic Sea and thus she was originally constructed for heavy ice conditions. In May 1997 she was refitted for passenger traffic in the Arctic territories. She has a charming nostalgically appearance and is equipped with the latest in navigation and safety. On the bridge, where everyone is welcome, you can see GPS-equipped computers next to the original compass in shining brass and out on deck you see the old wooden lifeboat (now retired) side by side with the latest model of life rafts. The restaurant on main deck takes all passengers and expedition staff in one single seating and the open bridge policy contributes to the relaxed atmosphere on board. Here you are treated to delicious meals in between landings. The vessel has one Zodiac that is perfect for landings and shuttling (and one Polarcirkeln boat fore safety and sometimes shuttling). The boats are easy accessible via a short ladder from the upper deck. In the lounge on upper deck you can enjoy the surrounding landscape. Here you can listen to the expedition staff giving entertaining lectures about the area you are travelling in. In the lounge you also find the bar and a small library with fact books, novels, board games, music CDs and DVDs. The ship's main observation deck is located on the upper deck and behind the bridge on bridge deck. From the observation decks you can comfortably and safely observe the wildlife and the scenery. During certain weather conditions and situations the outer decks might be closed for safety reasons. All cabins have bunk beds, are en suite, located on the outside and have portholes.
