Hurtigruten

Find an Expedition Cruise

Comfortably explore new cultures, ecosystems and historic sites with Hurtigruten. For over 100 years, the experienced line has offered sailings in Norway. Its most popular expeditions sail along the 1,250-mile western coast of Norway above and below the Arctic Circle, stopping at small fishing villages and major cities, and taking in views of snowcapped peaks and spectacular fjords.

In recent years, Hurtigruten has expanded its expedition program, venturing to destinations like Greenland, Antarctica and others. The line also offers theme departures focusing on astronomy, photography and Viking history.

Hurtigruten ships are designed for comfortable, year-round service, and most are equipped with stylish and spacious public areas, exercise rooms, saunas and elevators. Unlike traditional cruises, there is no entertainment on board, as Hurtigruten prefers to let nature's beauty be the star attraction.

  • Hurtigruten offers voyages in Norway, Greenland, Iceland, Spitsbergen and Antarctica.
  • Cruises are classified according to the quality of the vessel and its accommodations, the number of included amenities and activities both on and off the ship, and the level of service delivered. Hurtigruten specializes in first-class travel, and its trips typically range from $265 to $400 per person, per day, plus airfare.
