Fram arrived in Hamburg soon after dawn. Passengers disembarked in the cool, but it soon became a scorching hot day. Sailing back out of the city this afternoon, the deck was the place to be, not only for the breeze, but to see the properties along the banks, pleasure craft and locals enjoying the beaches along the Elbe River.
The new arrivals have their blue jackets, have done safety drill and enjoyed dinner. All are settled in for 'The Rivers of Western Europe' a journey south visiting ports in France, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, and the Canary Island of Lanzarote.
MV FRAM is the most modern expedition cruise vessel belonging to the Hurtigrutenfleet, roaming the polar waters and taking people to remote places where only few people go. In order to give you the chance to travel with us, even if only on your screen, we created this blog. Here you can see what we have seen and read what we have done. And - maybe - you will be onboard with us one day.
The expedition team consists of lecturers from various fields and backgrounds: ornithologists, mammalogists, historians, and geologists, ready to tackle all your questions. Together with the crew onboard we make your time on board REALLY worthwhile!
