M/S Origo / Malmö / Freja

The ultimate in polar exploration, this boutique Svalbard polar bear cruise offers something unique to the modern day explorer.

The M/S Origo / Malmö / Freya are three sister ships initially built as research vessels for the Swedish Maritime Administration. They have been rebuilt for the purpose of cruises and ice-strengthened in order for the ship to explore difficult-to-reach areas. These fantastic micro expedition vessels small enough to navigate to places few other ships can get to - which happen to be prime polar bear territory. Classic and intimate expedition ships with a warm and friendly atmosphere. 

There are four twin cabins with two lower berths and a private bathroom. These cabins have an optional upper berth which can also be used as triples.
