Why we like the M/S Sjøveien

  • With 12 passengers onboard this feels like a private charter 
  • Two guides and two zodiacs onboard means just 6 passengers per boat, none of the larger ships can come close to that ratio
  • Being so small really does grant access to areas others can't reach
  • Refurbished in 2017 with some beautiful and classic details in the well appointed cabins
  • A strong focus on food ensures that you really won't go hungry while you're on the ice
