The M/V Polar Star has a tough icebreaker hull allowing for freedom of movement even in polar regions. Our ship’s small size gives you the opportunity to go where many others can’t. You’ll experience remote and magical places that larger ships can only steam by. To get you even closer, our fleet of 10 sturdy, inflatable motorised boats (Zodiacs) gives access to small or shallow areas and landings.

The ship is also equipped with outside deck spaces for wildlife viewing. It’s possible to move about the ship entirely outdoors, so you can follow that dolphin, whale or albatross without ever having to go inside.
