Norwegian Know-How

Many operators boast about their ‘ultimate’ expedition ships. But only Hurtigruten expedition vessels contain two critical features that deliver adventure in a safer and more comfortable way.


While your Hurtigruten Polarcirkel boat may become your trusted ally as it takes you on exciting excursions each day, the method of deployment from ship to landing craft is just as important. Other expedition operators make the best of the complications of top deck Zodiac deployment, but there is just no equal to onboarding from a mid-level deck. Other ships must deploy lighter, Zodiac-style crafts using cranes from their top-deck, which is utilized primarily as working space. Our top decks are free to be fully utilized as the best observation points on the ships.
