A voyage along the Norwegian coast or the rugged coastline of Spitsbergen is sure to awaken the intrepid explorer in any traveller's soul. In 2015, the hugely popular MS Nordstjernen returns to the Hurtigruten portfolio.
This summer, the hugely popular ship, MS Nordstjernen, will be making a one-off voyage from Bergen to Spitsbergen before embarking on a series of special voyages along Svalbard's north-western reaches. Join her as she goes in search of the elusive polar bear, incredible glaciers, and settlements on the fringes of the encroaching Arctic sea ice.
Since 1893 Hurtigruten has explored the Norwegian coast and the polar waters of remote shores. We are still exploring and introducing new fjords and excursions along the long and rugged Norwegian coast, where 22 of the 34 ports that we call at on a daily basis are north of Arctic Circle!
Throughout our voyages there is an exciting range of excursions on both the northbound and southbound sailings. All are designed to give you the opportunity to experience the best that our various destinations have to offer. Choose between informative city tours, visits to cultural sites, bird watching trips or more active adventures such as dog sledging, RIB safaris and snowmobiling.
Booking your excursions before you travel is highly recommended. Many of our most popular trips have limited numbers meaning they can sell out before you get on board. Make sure you don't miss out!
Come and join us on a magical winter adventure - whether it's on a short break, an Astronomy voyage or a classic winter voyage.
There is no better way to experience the Northern Lights than by sailing along Norway's sheltered coast aboard a ship from our fleet, far away from artificial light. Our winter voyages are very popular, so book your winter adventure today. As the current 'solar maximum' reaches it's peak, winter 2014/15 will still be a great time to go in search of this phenomenon. We would love to guarantee sighting of the lights, but we can only improve your chances of seeing them by taking you to the right places at the right times.
Hurtigruten is the best way to explore Greenland's Arctic wilderness. We are happy to present these two new Explorer voyages where we go further north with new exciting landings and excursions. Both voyages have almost the same itinerary, but the 14-day journey gives you more time to explore the Oqaatsut surroundings. These voyages will give you an authentic experience of Greenland.
