Imagine – a world without polar bears.
A world where pristine beaches are littered with garbage. A world where there is more plastic than fish in the ocean. Where the big corporations exploit the local communities they rely on.
We can’t. And we won’t accept these possibilities.
That’s why we established Hurtigruten Foundation.
Working closely with guests, partners and organizations, Hurtigruten believes we can make a difference – by minimizing our operational impact and maximizing the positive contribution we make to local communities.
The focus of Hurtigruten Foundation efforts support three main pillars:
In addition, Hurtigruten Foundation spans activities onboard and ashore, such as beach clean-ups, citizen science, water sampling, oil spill monitoring, and other science related projects. We educate guests and create ‘ambassadors’ for every destination on every voyage. Through lectures, discussions and other engaging activities, Hurtigruten Foundation is a platform for guests and crew to take a stance, volunteer in worthwhile causes, and make a genuine difference – together.
