Albatros Expeditions’ itineraries enable guests to explore remote, uncrowded destinations

Ocean Albatros has 50 per cent less carbon emissions than traditional expedition ships, according to Albatros Expeditions. The vessel has the highest Polar code of 6, and Ice Class 1A. It has four diesel and two electric motors, which are all electronically controlled to improve both fuel economy and speed. 

“Since 1986, with the establishment of Albatros Travel Group, our goal has been to create life-changing memories for our guests,” said Søren Rasmussen, founder and chairman of Albatros Expeditions. “With these modern, eco-conscious vessels, we are able to offer small-ship expeditions inspired by our Nordic heritage that are truly once-in-a-lifetime journeys. While we usually only traverse between Antarctica and the Arctic, we are looking forward to welcoming the Ocean Albatros to our hometown and celebrating with our family, friends, and partners.”
