Nordika Travel is proud to offer fantastic expedition like voyages to the Southern Hemisphere with our partner Hurtigruten. Hurtigruten has been offering tours to Antarctica on the specially equipped ship MS Fram for several years. In 2016 another kids friendly ship MS Midnatsol was added, which brought Antarctica polar exploration to all ages. These are affordable, multi-generation friendly, diverse in activity levels, and full of fun and adventure. In 2018, Hurtigruten will add a brand new ship to its fleet: the MS Roald Amundsen. This state-of-the-art vessel will feature new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology that will reduce fuel consumption and show the world that hybrid propulsion on large ships is possible.
