Spitsbergen, Jan Mayen, Iceland – Arctic Islands Discovery (Westbound) on MS Fram
We start from Svalbard in the High Arctic, scanning the coasts of the national park for polar bears under the summer sun. Then we journey to the isolated island of Jan Mayen, which is dominated by the northernmost active volcano in the world. Finally, we explore various sites around beautiful Iceland, admiring its many green mountains, waterfalls, and variety of birdlife.
The original Fram was the most famous explorer ship of its time, and the achievements of her expeditions are unparalleled. MS Fram honors the heritage of the original Fram, using the most advanced technology and making her exceptionally well suited for expedition voyages in polar regions.
Fram means ‘forward’ – lifting expectations of the voyage at hand. MS Fram was built in 2007 with one mission in mind – to bring her guests closer to nature, wildlife and unforgettable experiences. The spacious outside decks include access to the very front of the ship – a great place to observe marine wildlife.
MS Fram was refurbished in 2020 and now holds upgraded cabins, suites and public areas with relaxed, comfortable and stylish setting – including new restaurants and Hurtigruten's signature, Science Center.
