M/S Stockholm

A VINTAGE EXPEDITION SHIP LOVED BY MANY

The M/S Stockholm is a classic ship built in 1953 for the Swedish National
Maritime Administration. In 1998 she was totally refitted and started her
career as a comfortable polar passenger ship. The M/S Stockholm carries
a maximum of 12 passengers in twin cabins with bunk beds. All cabins
have private facilities and small windows (portholes). M/S Stockholm is
a marvellous piece of maritime history with beautiful brass details and
wooden decks. It is no wonder she is loved by so many! After 20 years of
navigating the waters in Svalbard she has the experience and track record
of being able to access difficult to reach sites that are inaccessible to
other ships.

On board you will enjoy delicious meals in the company of
likeminded travellers, who are all fascinated by the Arctic nature, wildlife
and history. The food on board is of high standard and all beverages
are included in the price. With such a small party on board, this is like
travelling on a private yacht. The crew on board M/S Stockholm are also
great enthusiasts of the unique wildlife and unspoiled nature. Their
genuine curiosity is a prerequisite for expedition cruises of this kind. A
trip on board M/S Stockholm in these northern waters, with its unique
wildlife and pristine nature, is an experience of a lifetime! There are two
Zodiacs and two guides on board M/S Stockholm.

Our travelers' experiences

Every one of the crew worked very hard to give us the best trip possible. They went out of their way to look for bears and seals, to provide Zodiac excursions and to help make it like ‘home’ on the M/S Stockholm. Both our guides spent many hours either up in the crow’s nest, or awake during the night in the bridge, helping to look for photo subjects. We couldn’t have asked for more. Mary Ann McDonald
Jacob and I enjoyed the trip on board M/S Stockholm very much. It was truly an incredible experience. Our guide was very helpful and qualified. He was always pleasant and willing to answer questions for everyone. Blair & Jacob Briggs
We have just come back from Svalbard and have had the most wonderful time! It passed our wildest dreams. Thank you to everyone who helped us to organise it. The whole holiday from booking to going and being there has been excellent. David & Jackie March
Yesterday we received the fantastic log of our expedition to Svalbard. It bought back many memories of all the wonderful experiences and adventures we had on board and in the Zodiacs. The stunning views, scenery and wildlife encounters will never be forgotten. We thought that the whole trip was very well organised and the guides so professional, knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly. We had so many “Attenborough moments” which made this trip easily the best we have ever been on. Richard & Christine Shortt
The trip was absolutely amazing and I cannot commend the staff and crew of the Stockholm enough. The sightings and weather obviously takes care of itself but the Captain and his team made the experience truly next level. They are a very special group of people. Gerry Van der Walt
I want to thank you for the fabulous trip to Svalbard. It far exceeded my expectations of this polar region. We had wonderful sightings of polar bear, reindeer, walruses, an arctic fox, harp seals, bearded seals, humpback whales, many sea birds and arctic flowers. Peggy Gerick
