Explore the M/V Hondius

The M/V Hondius will be your home away from home while you make unforgettable discoveries in the Arctic Circle. This 150-passenger vessel is the first civilian ship to ever receive a Polar Class 6 designation, making it the most advanced and innovative ice-breaking vessel in the polar regions. Optimized for navigating tumultuous waters, it seamlessly exceeds the latest eco-friendly requirements of the Polar Code, allowing you to enjoy this untouched wonderland while impacting it as little as possible.

The Hondius is also staffed by a friendly, English-speaking crew who will be eager to welcome you aboard, and features spacious cabins as well as comfortable common areas. These include a cozy guest lounge, an inviting indoor bar, and a topside Sun Deck where you can admire breathtaking scenery.
