At Hurtigruten, we believe seeing a destination and experiencing it are two very different things. We don’t do traditional ‘cruises’; we do expedition cruises. We aren’t about ‘passive passengers’; we’re about EXPLORERS. Our ships aren’t huge and impersonal; but cosy and intimate. And our entertainment isn’t on board our ships; it’s right in the heart of the destination you visit with us.
HURTIGRUTEN HORIZONS Our golden age of exploration has expanded to horizons at the top of the world – Norway, Spitsbergen, Iceland, Greenland, Canada – and due south at the other end of the earth – the Amazon, Brazil, Patagonia, and Antarctica. We also have voyages across Europe and down to North Africa, and transatlantic routes from Morocco to Brazil.
EXPLORATION IN EXPERT HANDS With 123 years of bringing you journeys of discovery, Hurtigruten is the largest voyage operator in the Arctic and Antarctica. Our experienced crew has logged 200 expeditions, 51,000 hours, 489,000 miles, and guided more than 50,000 guests to polar regions sustainably. Ships in our fleet sport advanced safety technology, top-of-the-line navigational equipment, and ice-class A propellers.
ACTIVE ADVENTURE The allure of a voyage with Hurtigruten isn’t about our onboard entertainment. The true entertainment for your inner explorer is off the ship, uncovering the heart and soul of the places we visit. We have hundreds of excursions to whet your adventurous appetite, each designed to help you get closer to the supreme scenery, the unique wildlife, and the local culture.
FRESH FLAVOURS The delectable dishes we serve on board our ships are traditional, fresh, and homely. We take great pride in sourcing our ingredients straight from the surrounding sea and landscape, and our menu changes from season to season, and route to route. Flavours are skilfully preserved, enhanced, and presented by our talented team of chefs, be it the buffet or the refined à la carte dining option.
YOUR INNER EXPLORER Still, the most vital element you will need on your journey with Hurtigruten is a sense of adventure and exploration. We invite you to jump in, feet first, to see, taste, and experience new things, to meet fellow explorers and locals alike, and to immerse yourself in the culture and activities of our rarely-travelled-to destinations. Awaken your inner explorer and come aboard with us!
