Hurtigruten cruises

Building on an explorer heritage dating back to 1893, Hurtigruten voyages appeal to those looking for an adventurous and inspirational alternative to traditional cruising.

Intimate expedition ships and working vessels (which still provide crucial services to remote coastal regions of Norway) take passengers deep into the Norwegian fjords and the frozen wildernesses of Antarctica, with friendly, experienced crew to help you understand local culture, customs and traditions.

Norwegian coast cruises

Hurtigruten has been taking travellers up and down the jagged Norwegian coast for 125 years. The main route, between Bergen and Kirkenes, has been named ‘The World’s Most Beautiful Voyage’ – and it’s no surprise. Spectacular fjords, dramatic mountains and cliffs, rocky islands and quaint ports are all on the itinerary, as well as the Midnight Sun in summer and (hopefully) the Northern Lights in winter.

Along the way, you’ll stop off at dozens of small ports, where vital supplies are delivered to remote communities dotted along this wild coastline – a fantastic chance to get a glimpse of life in rural Norway.

Expedition cruises

Hurtigruten is best known for its cruises along the western and northern coasts of Norway. But it also offers expedition cruises in Antarctica – the ‘Great White Continent’ – and Svalbard, an archipelago of unspoilt Norwegian islands up in the Arctic Circle.

Taking adventure travel into the next century, Hurtigruten’s mission is to take passengers on sustainable nature experiences at the polar edges of the world. ‘Explorer Voyages’ can show you polar bears in Spitsbergen or penguins in Antarctica, all from the comfort of an advanced, intimately scaled expedition ship.

From the ice-filled bays of Antarctica to the sublime beauty of Norway’s fjords, you know you’re in for a treat if you’re sailing on one of Hurtigruten’s iconic white, red and black fleet. But that doesn’t just extend to the scenery. A voyage with Hurtigruten is also a culinary journey, sourcing delicious, fresh ingredients from local suppliers at every port. 

This is farm-to-table dining at its very best, from ultra-fresh seafood to excellent cheeses, and free-range venison. And that’s just day one.
