Hurtigruten offer unforgettable voyages from pole to pole, on intimate ships that bring you closer to the communities and environments you visit.

With 125 years’ experience, Hurtigruten are the market leader in exploration travel and offer unique nature-based adventures to the far ends of the planet. With new ships and new destinations, they have something for everyone and their experienced and dedicated on-board expedition teams are on hand to make their trips truly remarkable.

From the magnificent Norwegian fjords to the ice-filled bays of Antarctica, Hurtigruten takes you beyond the realms of conventional cruises by offering voyages that allow travellers to immerse themselves in a vast range of nature, cultures and wildlife, whilst travelling through breath-taking natural environments. The voyages are very much destination focused with little in the way of on board entertainment, apart from educational lectures lead by the on-board expedition teams.
