Flam means "forward" and raises expectations for the journey ahead. MS Flam was built in 2007 with the aim of bringing guests closer to nature, wildlife and unforgettable experiences. A spacious outer deck provides access to the front of the ship and is a great place to observe marine life.
Built for polar expeditions
The vessel will feature higher ice classes, chart drawing tools, bathymetry database, expandable forward sonar, iceberg searchlight, autonomous positioning system, oversized oil containment system for self-sufficiency, and a complete vessel. Specially built as an expedition vessel. An "expedition tool deck" is equivalent to a vehicle deck that can accommodate 25 vehicles. We believe explorers need a comfortable 'expedition base camp' that combines 'all sea capabilities' with safety, flexibility and environmental friendliness. This is the Fram. The best expedition ship imaginable.
A local Arctic artist helped transform MS Fram into a modern masterpiece. There is also a permanent exhibition of artifacts from the original frames used by famous polar explorers Nansen and Amundsen.
It is not customary to tip Hurtigruten ships on coastal voyages. However, tip boxes are installed in restaurants along with envelopes if it is deemed necessary to reward the crew for excellent service.
