MV Freya

Explore the Arctic in style aboard our small expedition ship, the MV Freya. With a recently upgraded interior and a solid ice strengthened hull, this vessel is perfect for traversing Arctic waters, whilst retaining first class comforts. Originally used as a lighthouse-building vessel, MV Freya boasts spacious cabins and multiple viewing decks to immerse yourself in the wonders of the Arctic.

MV Freya will be exploring the shores of Svalbard and East Greenland (Scoresby Sund) during the Arctic seasons 2024 and 2025 (April to October).
