About MS Fram
The M/S Fram is Hurtigruten’s expedition vessel, specifically designed for sailing in polar waters. Stay in one of 127 cabins with seven different categories to choose from - from inside cabins all the way up to outside Grand Suites with their own sitting area and outside balconies. As well as boasting numerous lounges in which to relax, on deck Jacuzzis provide a superb spot to watch the dramatic scenery pass by. The spacious outside decks also include access to the very front of the ship – a great place to observe marine wildlife. To enable both waterbased exploration and landings in otherwise inaccessible areas, small Polarcirkel boats ensure a safe trip from ship to shore.
The on board Expedition Team is comprised of an Expedition Leader, an Assistant Expedition Leader and several lecturers and experts. Being on an Explorer voyage means travelling in remote regions where weather and ice guide the route. Voyages run to fl exible schedules, and safety is always the first priority. During the fi rst evening you will learn about the ship and get the latest prognosis from the Captain on the weather and ice situation. Your Expedition Leader will provide regular updates on points of interest, wildlife sightings and the progress of the ship, and while on land the team will explain what to see and do and how to explore without disturbing the
nature and wildlife.
