Why We Like Polarfront


    The Polarfront’s secret sauce is that she is the only 12 passenger vessel with a large hot tub + sauna on the aft deck. The sauna has a large window allowing you to gaze out over the polar land and seascapes while staying toasty warm.


    Her spacious decks are ideal for observing wildlife on the ice while minimizing any disturbance. It’s a wonderful place to take in the views with a warm cup of cocoa in between landings.


    A real luxury in a polar environment, heated towel racks mean warm towels when you come in from the cold + drying your gear faster in between excursions.

  • GYM

    Very few ships of this size have a gym on board, but no extra has been overlooked on this French lady! The gym is simple but functional, allowing you to keep fit even when at sea just a few hundred nautical miles from the North Pole.
