Book any of our Hurtigruten cruises and discover why the Norwegian coast is one of the most spectacular journeys on earth, with epic landscapes contrasting with small, quiet villages and is often described as "the world's most beautiful voyage".
Hurtigruten ships have been a feature of the Norwegian coast since 1893, and today operate an all-year schedule with daily departures from Bergen heading up the coast to Kirkenes, calling at 34 ports. In summer months you get the chance to see the Midnight Sun, and in winter the Northern Lights are proudly on display.
Each ship is slightly different, but across the Hurtigruten fleet, there are the same standards of accommodation, which whilst high can be seen as basic on some older vessels. All ships have Norwegian inspired décor and boast restaurants serving fresh, healthy food, all included in your fare. On deck there are Jacuzzi's which are ideal for hardy travellers to watch the world go by from; for those seeking more comfort, there are panoramic lounges, a bar & café.
The exploration ships of Hurtigruten venture far afield, from Iceland, Greenland and Spitsbergen to exploring the Americas and Antarctica. The newest Hurtigruten hybrid ships are named for renowned Norwegian polar pioneers, MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof Nansen and have state-of-the-art hull designs.
These new ships boast large observation platforms, ideal for uninterrupted views of nature and wildlife whilst a majority of cabins come complete with their own balcony. On deck, you will find infinity pools, Jacuzzi baths and bars while in the main restaurants you can find food inspired by your destinations.
Let Hurtigruten take you to the coldest continent, and allow it to melt your heart. The elements rule here, where fearless wildlife face a background of vast, white expanses of solitude. Your polar voyage with Hurtigruten begins in South America before venturing to the edge of the world - Antarctica.
