Combining state-of-the-art technology and a premium on board experience with Hurtigruten’s 125 years of experience and unparalleled destinations, the two Norwegian built ships introduce the next generation of adventure travel.

MS Fridtjof Nansen is the latest addition to Hurtigruten’s fleet of custom-built ships – and represents the next generation of expedition ships. She will explore some of the most spectacular corners of the globe. She will feature underwater drones, kayaks, and small explorer boats for landings. Guests will be able to work out in the onboard gym or running track, swim in the pool, and enjoy the scenery through panoramic windows or from a hot tub. MS Fridtjof Nansen's three restaurants will host a variety of dining options, with menus drawn from our rich Norwegian and Nordic tradition, as well as international cuisine and local inspiration. Whether enjoying your meal at Aune Main Dining, Fredheim – the informal international meeting place, or the specialty restaurant Lindstrøm, indulge in low-key yet refined, modern Nordic cooking – where our honest and delicious cuisine reflects our destinations. The core of the onboard experience is the Nansen Science Center, an edutainment venue where guests and crew members meet to foster a deeper understanding of the areas we explore. The Nansen Science Center will also be the onboard headquarters for the expedition team.​

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
