Servicing the lighthouses of Norway until February 2019, VILLA is a rugged yet luxurious vessel perfect for exploring the Arctic. Her crew is made of experts who have cruised these waters for decades, ensuring your safety and comfort as you embark on a real expedition. Her resilient exterior features an ice strengthened hull, allowing her to venture deep into the ice of the arctic. Despite her rugged exterior, VILLA boasts a luxurious interior which was recently refitted in 2020. She features six unique cabins that sleep up to twelve guests on exciting Arctic voyages. Her interior is predominately finished in wood, creating a rustic and utilitarian aesthetic. Not too lavish, her interior exudes the charm of a traditional expedition vessel whilst ensuring that you want for nothing whilst onboard. Share stories of the day’s adventures in the spacious dining room and look out for wildlife from the bridge where 180 degree view windows allow panoramic vistas over the ice. Focusing on combining comfort with functionality, VILLA is the perfect vessel for luxury expeditions into arctic waters.
