Sail in Scandinavian Style

Innovative, light-filled spaces where comfort meets discovery.

  • The Nordic Spa

    Experience the ultimate healthy Scandinavian traditions from the Sauna and Snow Grotto to a relaxing massage.

  • Badestamp

    Following Nordic tradition, our onboard badestamp, a traditional wooden-sided hot tub, is perfect for relaxing after a day of exploration. Try the longstanding Scandinavian practice of alternating between hot and cold when bathing to relax and rejuvenate.

  • The Living Room

    Located to maximize views through the floor-to-ceiling windows, with a library that informs even the best-read explorers. The ideal setting for relaxation and conversation.

  • Explorers’ Lounge

    Inspired by the trade routes of Vikings, the Explorers’ Lounge is the ideal place for guests to share their discoveries over an aquavit or a craft beer while sampling fine Scandinavian fare. Located high on the ship with floor-to-ceiling windows, the Explorers’ Lounge provides guests an ideal space to take in the magnificent scenery, share discoveries with fellow travelers or to enjoy a drink.

  • The Pools

    A sanctuary of three different temperature pools (caldarium, tepidarium, frigidarium), including an “inside-outside” pass-through swimming experience from which guests can admire the surrounding scenery of vast wilderness—from polar ice fields to coniferous forests.

  • Aquavit Terrace®

    Offering mulled wine, hot chocolate or ship-matured aquavit, the Aquavit Bar is an ideal place to relax with new friends in this Viking-inspired, light-filled space while taking in the stunning beauty that surrounds you.

  • The Library

    Located next to the Explorer’s Lounge Upper Level, the Library is specially curated by London bookshop Heywood Hill and Cambridge University (Scott Polar Research Institute) to enrich and enhance your Expedition experience. Feel free to browse and borrow any of the selections; we only ask that you please return them at the end of your cruise.

  • Finse Terrace

    An outdoor lounge area just above sea level with recessed, heated couches and lava rock “firepits,” the Finse Terrace was designed to allow our guests the comforts of the ship al fresco while enjoying the dramatic scenery. Named after the Finse Plateau in Norway, where some of the greatest polar explorers, including Nansen and Amundsen, did their expedition training in preparation for their North and South Pole expeditions.

  • The Aula

    A stunning panoramic auditorium inspired by the University of Oslo’s famed ceremonial hall, the former venue for the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony. Used for lectures, daily briefings, documentaries and films, this spectacular venue features a 4k laser-projected screen that retracts to expose floor-to-ceiling windows and 270° views.
