Hurtigruten has been travelling the length of Norway’s scenic coastline for 123 years. In this age of exploration, we are now bringing the spirit of authentic, active adventure and discovery to Norway’s coastal route. A custom made program containing lectures and presentations, special on board activities both inside and out on deck, as well as several excursions and hikes, are available on seven of our ships in 2017.
The Expedition Team members are not simply enthusiastic hosts, but seasoned travelers and modern-day explorers, passionate about sharing insights that will enrich and enhance your journey. The teams are carefully picked for their local knowledge and specific expertise in fields like biology, history, geology and the eras of human exploration. We want to take you on a unique voyage and show you a side of the Norwegian coast that is rarely seen or experienced.
The Expedition Team will take you on landings and hikes and inform you on how to make the most of your stay in Norway without disturbing the fragile wildlife and nature. All of the Expedition Team members have extensive knowledge on how to operate environmental friendly tourism in Polar areas. Norwegians are known for their outdoor obsession, and Hurtigruten offers hikes and outdoor activities to all guests.
Norway is consistently voted one of the most beautiful places on the planet, and few things can compare to the coastline’s sparkling fjords and dramatic mountains. Take advantage of the expedition cruise’s many guided hiking opportunities with a Hiking Pass. The pass can be bought on board, along with Hurtigruten’s many optional excursions that offer everything from city tours and visits to cultural sites, to bird watching trips and adventures like kayaking, dog sledding and snowmobiling.
