Ocean Nova

Built in Denmark, Ocean Nova boasts a reinforced hull to cope with the icy conditions, beautifully precise Scandinavian design, and the stature of being known as one of the best vessels for Arctic exploration. With an observation lounge and polar boutique, this ship was made specifically with comfort in mind, and makes light work of the difficult conditions that she often faces.

Ocean Nova travels solely to the Arctic and expeditions aboard her include trips to Norway, Spitsbergen, Iceland and The Arctic Islands.
