Cruises and conferences

Combine business and pleasure with Hurtigruten's incentive programmes. Enjoy the midnight sun in summer or the northern lights in winter on a cruise along the coast of Arctic Norway.

Fabulous fjords (three days)

Hold a business meeting in an extraordinary setting: invite your team to see the famous Norwegian fjords on board a Hurtigruten ship.

Day 1: Evening in Bergen
The journey begins with a lovely dinner and a nice evening on board Hurtigruten. Participants can arrive from 04:00 pm and the ship sets sail at 10:30 pm.

Day 2: Ålesund
After a good night’s sleep you are ready to kick off your meeting in the conference room. At noon, the ship stops for three hours at Ålesund, where you may join a guided tour of the city which is famous for its Art Noveau architecture.

In the afternoon, you can continue your business meetings on board.

The evening is spent admiring the dramatic fjord landscape accompanied by the sunset and Hurtigruten’s freshly prepared dinner.

Day 3: Trondheim
Hurtigruten arrives at Trondheim at 06.00 am, but do not worry – you will have plenty of time to check out and have a final business meeting if required.

Of course you are also free to join one of Hurtigruten’s excursions in Trondheim, for example visit the medieval Nidaros Cathedral or the Ringve Music Museum, or go on a trip to the island of Munkholmen, which has an intriguing history going back to the Viking Age.

Price example (may be subject to change)
From NOK 1,500 per person per day, including one night’s accommodation (double room), breakfast, lunch and a three-course dinner, access to meeting rooms and two coffee breaks.

Natural wonders in Lofoten and Helgeland (four days)

A four-day spring incentive (1 April to 31 May) suggestion with Hurtigruten from Tromsø to Trondheim, with a string of spectacular nature attractions on the way.

Day 1: Tromsø
The adventure starts with dinner at a fine local restaurant before the Hurtigruten ship arrives at 11:45 pm.

Day 2: Vesterålen and Lofoten
Spend a productive day in Hurtigruten’s conference rooms. It is recommended that any meetings are concluded by 04:00 pm, when the ship passes through the stunning Raftsundet Sound, so that everyone has a chance to admire the view of the snow-capped mountain peaks. At Raftsundet there is a possibility to go on a sea eagle safari and get astonishingly close to these rare birds of prey.

Day 3: The Arctic Circle and the Seven Sisters
The gorgeous Helgeland Coast is a great incentive for getting up early the next day. A little later, you will pass the Arctic Circle, the UNESCO-listed Vega Islands and the mountain range the Seven Sisters (De Syv Søstre). During the day, there is plenty of time to continue your business meetings without having to worry about missing anything – you will be notified as the ship approaches the natural attractions. In the afternoon, you will enjoy a farewell dinner against the backdrop of the mythical Torghatten Mountain with the peculiar, round hole that goes right through the rock.

Day 4: Trondheim
Arrival at Trondheim early in the morning, conclusion and travel home.

Price example (may be subject to change)
From NOK 1,500 per person per day, including one night’s accommodation (double room), breakfast, lunch and a three-course dinner, access to meeting rooms and two coffee breaks.

After Honningsvåg, the ship continues to Finnkjerka, where a local fisherman delivers fresh king crabs that will be included in a delicious seafood dinner later in the evening.

Day 3: Kirkenes
When Hurtigruten arrives at Kirkenes by the Russian border, you are further east than Istanbul and St Petersburg. Before the return journey, you may continue your business meetings or take the opportunity to join Hurtigruten’s excursion.

About Hurtigruten's incentives

Hurtigruten offers inspiring incentives with the added bonus of having meeting facilities, accommodation, food and excursions in the same place.

Meeting facilities and incentives in one and the same place

Turn your business meeting into an extraordinary experience with Hurtigruten’s incentive programme. Exciting excursions in the surroundings of the beautiful Norwegian coastline can work wonders to get the creative juices going. Watch a sea eagle catch its prey, drive a dog sledge or feel the adrenaline flowing on a trip in a RIB-boat, and in between meetings, participants can go out on deck for some refreshing sea air and return with a clear mind.

In the winter, you have excellent chances of seeing the northern lights and in the summer you are blessed with the glow of the midnight sun.
