Alaska—Adventure Untamed

Unbridled wildlife, rugged mountains, and fresh air—the wild frontier is calling. Alaska is not far away, but a world apart from the daily life that you know and live.

Cruising to Alaska with Hurtigruten

A voyage on a small ship expedition cruise with us allows you to experience countless delights as well as the hidden gems that make Alaska unlike anywhere else.  Together we will sail along the most spectacular, inaccessible, and remote coast of Alaska, and explore the maze of islands, mountains, glaciers, inlets and fjords.​ Hurtigruten Expeditions cruises will take you past the Aleutians, brave the waters of the mighty Bering Sea, and land at the seldom visited islands of St Paul and St Matthew.
