Experience state of the art technology in unparalleled destinations
Featuring Hurtigruten’s revolutionary battery hybrid powered propulsion system, MS Fridtjof Nansen will be a near identical twin to her sister ship MS Roald Amundsen.
Combining state of the art technology and 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.
On board MS Fridtjof Nansen
The stunning scenery will be reflected in a rich and comfortable interior design. Natural Scandinavian materials such as granite, oak, birch and wool will be used to create relaxed and stylish cabins and public areas. All cabins are Ocean View, 50% will have private balconies, aft suites will feature private outdoor Jacuzzis with spectacular views.
The core of the on board experience is the Nansen Science Center, an edutainment venue to guests and crew meet to create a deeper understanding of the areas they explore. Nansen Science Center will also be the on board HQ for the Expedition Team.
MS Fridtjof Nansen’s three restaurants will host a variety of dining options, with menus drawn from Hurtigruten’s rich Norwegian and Nordic traditions, as well as international cuisine and local inspiration.
Whether enjoying your meal at Aune, the main dining room, Fredheim, the informal international meeting place or the speciality restaurant Lindstrøm, you will indulge in low key yet refined modern Norwegian Nordic cooking – where Hutrigruten’s honest and delicious reflects the destinations.
After a day of exploring new destinations, guests can relax and rejuvenate in the elegant Explorer Lounge a large gym and wellness centre or enjoy the scenery and sunsets on the massive in and outdoor Observation Decks with the aft infinity pool and Jacuzzis as one of the highlights.
Each expedition voyage is accompanied by a handpicked team of specialists and modern day explorers. Highly experienced, passionate and knowledgeable, the Expedition Team will be guides and guardians on your voyage of exploration, instructing you on safety, sustainability and science.
MS Fridtjof Nansen will feature a variety of custom built expedition equipment, including kayaks, a fleet of Blueye underwater drones and Expedition Boats for safe landings in remote areas.
In the footsteps of a great explorer
The newest addition to Hurtigruten’s fleet will honour the heritage of her namesake – the Norwegian explorer, scientist, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Fridtjof Nansen. Known for his innovations in Arctic expeditions, Nansen led the first crossing of Greenland on cross country skis. He is perhaps most famous for his attempt to reach the geographical North Pole during the Fram Expedition (1893 – 1896).
Interestingly, after Nansen’s Fram expedition, the ship was passed on to another great explorer who secretly planned an expedition to the South Pole, Roald Amundsen.
