Why Cruise with Hurtigruten
At Hurtigruten we give you the opportunity to travel with meaning. Building on our explorer heritage dating back to 1893, our explorations are grounded in the likings of people who value learning and personal growth over luxury. We are world leader in sustainable explorer travels in Polar Regions. We offer unique experiences and impart knowledge in a way that leaves the smallest environmental footprint possible.
Our unique heritage, combined with highly skilled crews and a diverse fleet consisting of nimble, intimately-scaled expedition ships, enables us to offer you unique nature-based experiences at remote corners of the world.

Whether you’re eager to meet a few friendly penguins or longing to search for the elusive polar bear, we offer it all. Our expeditions to destinations like Antarctica, Svalbard, and Iceland are, simply put, unmatched: our ships are floating base-camps-at-sea, built specifically to cruise amongst extreme conditions and access remote regions. They also come with tools to assist you in fully exploring your surroundings, like kayaks, trekking poles, and snowshoes.

Norwegian Coastal Cruises
Our cruises along the Norwegian coast—nicknamed 'The World's Most Beautiful Voyage' by Lonely Planet—have earned their place on lists of iconic traveler routes, along with other classics like the Orient Express, the Nile River, and Route 66.
Experience Norway's beautiful fjords, charming ports, and rare wildlife under the Midnight Sun or spectacular Northern Lights. Our daily departures take you on cruises where no other ships go; no matter the season, our journeys along the Norwegian coast are filled with amazing scenery and unique experiences.

Expedition Cruises
Our history of exploring polar regions traces back to 1896, making us one of the most experienced travel companies in the world. Hurtigruten offers breathtaking experiences in remote corners of the world, expeditions that appeal to those who value thorough exploration of seldom-visited destinations.

Get up close and personal with wildlife, culture and incredible scenery - from pole to pole. With our explorer voyages, we take you from the polar bears of Svalbard in the north to the penguins of Antarctica in the south with our fleet of advanced, intimately-scaled expeditions ships.
