Hurtigruten Expeditions

Ever since the first Expedition to Svalbard in 1896, Hurtigruten Expeditions have believed that exploring and learning about our beautiful planet should go hand-in-hand. Embarking on an Expedition cruise, you’ll be travelling to some of the most remote and pristine places on the planet. These are areas where nature reigns supreme and where wildlife live free.

With diverse and unique Expedition cruises to 15 global destinations and stopping at over 230 ports and landing sites from major cities to isolated islands, Hurtigruten Expeditions helps guests unleash their inner explorer by offering exhilarating experiences.

Hurtigruten Expedition cruises feature a group of hand-picked experts who make up the Expedition Team, and they’ll deliver fascinating talks and lead guests on shore landings, kayaking excursions, expedition boat adventures and much more.

Why Cruise with Hurtigruten Expeditions?

Hurtigruten Expeditions have been sailing polar regions for almost 130 years. Over the decades, the Captains, Expedition Teams and returning guests have witnessed the impact of climate change on these vulnerable areas with their own eyes.

This is why Hurtigruten Expeditions have committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, putting them at the heart of who they are and what they do.
