The MV Polaris 1 is an ex-MOD fleet tender that has undergone extensive conversion into a luxury expedition vessel. It can accommodate 12 passengers in 12 spacious en-suite cabins. The MV Polaris is ideally suited for small group expeditions to remote locations that are inaccessible to the larger cruise ships.

The main deck consists of the spacious passenger dining area, bar, and lounge. This area benefits from large picture windows, allowing guests to enjoy fantastic views while they dine and relax at the bar.

The lower accommodation is made up of 12 en-suite cabins, arranged as 4 singles and 8 doubles.

Experience close encounters with wildlife, explore magnificent landscapes, and discover the culture and history of Arctic destinations. If you are interested in expedition-style travel with a strong conservation bias, excellent photographic opportunities, and commitment to providing the fullest experience of destinations, then a voyage on the MV Polaris 1 is for you!

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
