4. Hurtigruten is not your normal cruise operator.

When you sail with Hurtigruten, you are on an expedition with likeminded adventurers who value personal growth and exploring over luxury. You won't find waterslides, casinos or any sort of dress code.

However, you will find a casual and relaxed atmosphere, great food and all the quality equipment you need to explore new destinations. 



5. We are adding two new ships to our fleet in 2019.

Modern, hybrid, and inspired by our Scandinavian heritage - this week we welcome MS Roald Amundsen to our fleet. Next year, she will be joined by MS Fridtjof Nansen.

Named after two of Norway's most famous explorers, these state of the art ships will follow suit and explore some of the most remote destinations in the world. 


6. Committed to sustainable travel.

We operate in some of the world’s most pristine and vulnerable natural landscapes. This is a responsibility we take seriously, which is why we educate our guests on how to reduce our environmental footprint.
