Expedition cruises to remote, beautiful and dramatic coastlines north and south
From the magnificent fjords of Norway to the awesome ice-filled bays of Antarctica, Hurtigruten is renowned for its comprehensive collection of voyages to remote, beautiful and dramatic coastlines.
With more than 120 years of maritime experience and as fleet of 14 intimate and comfortable ships, including Midnatsol, pictured, Hurtigruten cruises allow closer encounters with environments, wildlife and people along shorelines near and far.
In the Norwegian coastal waters, Hurtigruten ships have been part of the country’s very lifeline for more than a century.
Beneath the Midnight Sun or the mystical Northern Lights, daily departures across the Arctic Circle from Bergen to Kirkenes, cruise to the heart of coastal Norway.
Calling at 34 ports, most never visited by commercial cruise liners, ships deliver freight, post and passengers to remote communities, some of which are home to just a few hundred people on friendly and unpretentious voyages which are truly Norwegian.
Spitsbergen, Greenland, South America, Antarctica
Nordic influence and distinctive maritime heritage have inspired Hurtigruten to explore regions of exceptional natural beauty and offer voyages to some of the most desirable places on Earth.
There are regular shore excursions and on board lecturers to help an international mix of passengers to encounter, discover and develop an understanding of the shorelines and wildlife that lie far beyond our natural horizons – Spitsbergen, Greenland, South America and Antarctica.
