Hurtigruten operates premium expedition cruises to Alaska, Antarctica, the Caribbean & Central America, Greenland, Iceland, North America, the Northwest Passage, Norway, South America, and Svalbard. These are unique destinations where the natural beauty is matched only by the stunning diversity of the wildlife, and often the friendliness of the locals. On each of the small, purpose-built ships in our fleet, you will find modern facilities and equipment designed specifically to sail in remote waters.
The Hurtigruten Difference
They care about the planet: As the industry’s leader in green technology, Hurtigruten strives to reduce impacts on the environments they visit around the world. That means guests can participate in once-in-a-lifetime experiences with confidence
in Hurtigruten's commitment to reducing emissions and increasing sustainability in all that they do.
They value and encourage scientific research and discovery: Guests on Hurtigruten expeditions do more than just travel the oceans, they study them. Adventurers can participate in such activities as reporting cloud conditions to NASA, assisting in water sample collections, and study phytoplankton under microscope. All in their efforts to better understand the world we live in and reduce our footprint.
They seek new and unparalleled experiences: At Hurtigruten, their mission is to bring adventurers to discover the natural beauty and wonder of some of the most remote destinations on Earth. Their itineraries are developed with this goal in mind, expanding their horizons far and wide each year.
Green Technology: In 2019, Hurtigruten introduced the world’s first hybrid electric–powered expedition cruise ship, MS Roald Amundsen, followed by MS Fridtjof Nansen launching in 2020. By 2021, at least six of our ships will be operating on clean biogas, battery power, and LNG.
Protecting Arctic Wildlife: Wildlife observation is carried out at a distance to preserve natural behavior and performed with the utmost respect for welfare and habitat.
Giving Back: Hurtigruten is dedicated to contributing to the local communities they visit, and to creating a positive impact everywhere they sail. By trading and sourcing services locally, they contribute to the welfare of communities along our routes.
Banning Single-Use Plastic: Plastic pollution is the biggest single threat to our oceans. Hurtigruten is proud to be the first cruise line in the world to ban all unnecessary single-use plastic.
Delicious Food, with Meaning: Do you prefer meat, fish, or plant-based dishes? Whatever your choice, rest assured that Hurtigruten's suppliers are held to high sustainability and animal ethics standards.
