RELEASE YOUR INNER EXPLORER ON A HURTIGRUTEN CRUISE, THE ORIGINAL NORWEGIAN COASTAL CRUISE COMPANY AND POLAR SPECIALIST.
OUR HURTIGRUTEN CRUISE AMENITIES & EXCLUSIVE OFFER:
- Free one-night pre-cruise hotel stay on select Norwegian voyages.
With a fleet of 13 small ships, Hurtigruten specializes in classic Norwegian Coastal cruise itineraries through the Norwegian fjords, or Explorer voyages to the far reaches of the earth including the Arctic and Antarctica. And Hurtigruten is now building the first hybrid propulsion expedition ships, due in 2018 and beyond, that reduce fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions.
Since 1893, the original Norwegian Coastal cruises operate year round through Norwegian fjords, visiting cities and smaller towns along the way. Half the voyage is above the Arctic circle, offering unique celestial opportunities such as Northern Lights and Midnight Sun. And on voyages of 7 nights or more, Hurtigruten offers its guarantee you'll see the Northern Lights.) These voyages focus on history, nature, wildlife, scenery, and culture -- all wrapped up in one voyage. Lecturers by noted expedition leaders enhance the experience.
Unlike other cruise operators who may visit a handful of ports, Hurtigruten visits 34 ports on the Norwegian Coastal Voyage. To help you plan your time ashore, Hurtigruten offers shore excursions that can be pre-booked. These excursions offer travelers soft and moderate adventure and unique activities. (Consider the transfer to the airport from Kirkenes by doglsed>)
Additionally, Hurtigruten operates a series of Explorer Voyages to some of our planet's most remote regions, including Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland and Sptizbergen, as well as itineraries in Europe. (You can even sign up to be one of 12 lucky travelers to camp overnight ashore in Antarctica, if you're so inclined.)
