Virgo

Intimate small-group expeditions

Virgo in the fjords of Northern Norway © Marcel Lesh

Virgo is an ideal ship for intimate small group expeditions to the Arctic and Northern Norway, offering bright and spacious inside areas and large deck spaces outside. She was originally built as a Swedish buoy laying vessel and has been completely refurbished in 2021 to prepare her for new adventures as a leisure expedition ship. The ships’ warm atmosphere and friendly crew will make you feel right at home.

Expedition ship Virgo can take up to 12 guests in 9 cabins. All cabins have a fresh new Scandinavian interior and private bathrooms. Located on the upper deck, are 2 spacious Superior Suites, a Twin Cabin and one Single Cabin. On the lower deck you’ll find five more comfortable Single Cabins. All have private bathrooms, a desk, storage space and at least one porthole window.

A great feature of MS Virgo is the spacious lounge with direct access to the front deck. The large windows of the lounge offer good viewing opportunities and plenty of space for photo editing, listening to lectures or just having a drink with fellow travelers. On board Virgo we have an open bridge policy. This means you are welcome to visit the bridge at almost any time. It’s the perfect place for whale watching or having a chat with the captain.

Lounge

One of our favourite features of Virgo is the spacious observation lounge on the upper deck. It has panoramic windows for an almost 360 degree view of the scenery.

During the evening hours, our guides will host lectures and talks in the lounge and it’s also the perfect place to have a chat with the other guests on board while you enjoy a nice drink.

Outside Decks

The multi level outside decks of Virgo make the ship especially suited for photography. From the bow to the stern, you will always find a good place to take the best pictures of the surrounding landscape.

We embark our zodiacs via a gangway on the side of the ship.
