MS Nordstjernen

MS Nordstjernen on a beautiful spring evening

Nordstjernen shares its beautiful name with the star that the vikings called the leading star. The star which always shows the way north, and lights the way that MS Nordstjernen will head this summer, as she once again heads to magical Svalbard.

Both beautiful and historic, Nordstjernen takes us back to the time when Hurtigruten was the lifeblood of the Norwegian coast. Newly renovated, she is ready to return to the beautiful Arctic waters, and we look forward to sharing this experience with you.

MS Nordstjernen is a small ship, and on our Svalbard cruises we will be taking a maximum of 108 guests. The size of the ship, and the group, will enable us to reach areas other ships can't, and to make more stops along the way.

MS Nordstjernen boasts an international expedition team, and all departures will feature Scandinavian, German and English speaking guides. In addition specific departures will be available in French and Italian.
