About MV Strannik

Strannik is a Russian word, it doesn’t translate easily into English. It is sometimes translated as “Wanderer” on other occasions it is translated as “Pilgrim”.  A Strannik is a person travelling in search of knowledge and wisdom.


There is no better word nor way to describe our vessel and our company. Both have been born out of a natural curiosity and love of the natural world, history and travel. 

We invite you to follow our progress as we journey around the world, or come and join us for a leg if the opportunity presents itself.
