Hurtigruten cruise ship in Norway


For nearly 130 years, Hurtigruten’s original coastal voyage service has linked towns and villages along the Norwegian coast, carrying mail, passengers and vital supplies. This is a unique service, and to be a part of it is a special experience.

Every single day of the year, winter and summer, one of the Hurtigruten fleet departs from Bergen for the far reaches of northern Norway. Travellers can join for the full 12 day trip, or take a shorter leg. Hurtigruten also now operates expedition vessels further afield, to destinations including Antarctica, Greenland and Svalbard.

Our Insight

Why Hurtigruten

The classic Norwegian Coastal Voyage on one of Hurtigruten's purpose-built vessels is a journey like no other. When you join this trip, you take a ringside seat to see the spectacular changing scenery of Norway and amazing wildlife as you travel to the Arctic Circle and beyond, as well as getting an interesting perspective on what life must be like for coastal communities perched at the edge of civilisation, dependent on the arrival of the ship for their very survival.

Summer journeys are extraordinary as you visit the land of the Midnight Sun, and you can enjoy 24-hour daylight if you travel in the weeks on either side of midsummer. In the winter, dark falls early - all the more opportunity to witness a stunning display of the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights.

Visiting Norway on Hurtigruten is a unique experience, quite different from taking a conventional cruise in the area. And you can take a shorter leg to combine your trip with time ashore - we particularly recommend the rail journeys from Tromso to Oslo and over the roof of Norway from Bergen to Oslo.

Hurtigruten have now expanded their offering further afield, with a growing number of purpose-built expedition vessels taking you to destinations including Antarctica, Greenland, Spitsbergen, Iceland and northern Norway. Expert lecturers on board, naturalist guides, zodiacs to facilitate trips ashore and ice-strengthened hulls for the highest safety levels, all combine to give you an extraordinary expedition experience. Hurtigruten are also committed to reducing the environmental impact of their fleet, as demonstrated by the recent launch of their new hybrid-powered ships, MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof Nansen.
