Hurtigruten Cruises

Enjoy authentic experiences and stunning natural scenery on a Hurtigruten cruise. The experienced company has operated sailings in Norway for over 100 years. Its most popular expedition cruises sail along a 1,250-mile stretch of Norway’s western coast. Traveling to destinations above and below the Arctic Circle, these itineraries stop in small fishing villages and major cities, offering views of snowcapped peaks and spectacular fjords.

In recent years, Hurtigruten has extended its expedition program, venturing to remote regions such as Greenland, Iceland, Spitsbergen and Antarctica. The line also offers theme departures that focus on topics such as photography, astronomy 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 cruises 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.
