Setting sail from Reykjavik

Capital of Iceland and gateway to this extraordinary volcanic island, modern Reykjavik is home to an impressive collection of interesting attractions and places of historic significance. Visit the impressive Hallgrímskirkja church, relax in a thermal pool, potter around the old harbour, and with 24 hour daylight in the summer months, you can play golf at midnight, or choose the perfect place to view the midnight sun such as the lighthouse at Grotta or on the waterfront by Sólfar - the Sun Voyager sculpture. If you're like us, you will find travelling out of Reykjavik by land or sea to be unforgettable.

Don't miss

Take a boat tour from Reykjavik’s Old Harbour to see the numerous whales of Faxaflói Bay: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, minke whales and humpback whales.

The Ship

Your home from home

Hurtigruten - MS Maud
Hurtigruten - MS Maud - Balcony Suite
Hurtigruten - MS Maud - Explorer Bar

The ship emerged from an extensive refurbishment in 2021, reborn as the biofuel-powered expedition ship MS Maud and sailing year-round from Dover.

What we love

Hurtigruten's commitment to sustainability is reflected in the fact that MS Maud will run on biodiesel, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 80% compared to conventional marine diesel. The ship will be perfectly suited to exploring the rugged coast of Norway, and the inviting suites and public areas represent a significant evolution of the Hurtigruten onboard experience
