• M/S Stockholm, Svalbard Expedition Ship

about the M/S Stockholm

about the M/S Stockholm

A classic ship constructed in 1953 for the Swedish Maritime Administration which was then refurbished and classified as an ice-classed passenger trip. With just 6 cabins, the MS Stockholm is intimate enough for a really personal experience – yet has the space necessary to keep ones mind at peace, almost like sailing in a private yacht. 

M/S sTOCKHOLM details


An old ship refurbished to accommodate up to 12 guests.


Sailing around the icy shores, fjords and coves that make up Svalbard, the most northern part of Europe. The exact setting will depend on which bear safari you chose and the wildlife of the moment!

Accommodation & Facilities

The 6 twin cabins are centered around the main mess area. The M/S Stockholm is unique in that it carries a maximum of 12 passengers providing for a uniquely superior Arctic experience. Each cabin has en-suite facilities and the ship is decorated with ornate brass furnishings and pine decks.


Throughout your expedition you have some sumptuous food which is made even more enjoyable by your beer, wine and soft drinks also being included in the trip costs! No better way to relax at the end of a day exploring this Polar wilderness.


Exploring Svalbard on the M/S Stockholm truly is like being on your own private ship. With only 12 people on board you experience a truly authentic trip and benefit from high quality guiding both from you’re on board guide and also Captain Per who has travelled this area for many years and knows it like the back of his hand. Your exact activities will depend on which bear safari you chose and the wildlife of the moment.
