Safe and Sustainable
Building on over 125 years of exploration experience, we know how to take care of you and, at the same time, the wildlife habitats and remote communities you’ll visit with us. Hurtigruten is committed to protecting the environment; in fact, we were the first cruise line in the world to remove all unnecessary single-use plastic from our ships and hotels.
A Heritage of Adventure
We have been at the forefront of maritime exploration since 1893, pushing boundaries and journeying to new horizons from pole to pole. This history is proudly embedded in the DNA of all our expedition cruises today. Join us as we explore the remote corners of the Earth, and experience being a part of a living legacy.
Authentic to the Core
The essence of a Hurtigruten expedition cruise is pure, unfiltered exploration. We immerse our guests in nature at its most pristine, bringing you up close to rare wildlife and into the lives of local people. Forget commonplace onboard entertainment; instead, expect insights, inspiration, and appreciation for our planet in all its glory.
Technology for the Future
Hurtigruten has invested in state-of-the-art hybrid electric engines to power greener expedition vessels. Designed in partnership with Rolls Royce, the sophisticated battery system and other innovative green technology solutions will substantially reduce fuel consumption and emissions. MS Roald Amundsen is the first of three pioneering ships, set to revolutionize ocean exploration for the better and usher in a new era of environmentally conscious expedition travel.
Your Expedition Team
For an extraordinary expedition experience, you need extraordinary expertise. Your expedition team is composed of modern-day explorers and top-tier subject-matter experts from around the world. Dedicated to keeping every expedition cruise safe and sustainable, the team also conducts talks on a range of topics to enhance your knowledge of each landing site and destination.
MS Roald Amundsen embarks on immersive expeditions across the globe, from the far Arctic reaches of the Northwest Passage down to the populous penguin colonies in Antarctica, and many places in between. Much of the waters and landing sites you will visit are barely inhabited by humans, giving you a glimpse into the lives of frontier communities and unique wildlife.
Aboard MS Roald Amundsen, you will enjoy a choice of three exquisite dining concepts: bountiful buffets, a selection of international fare, or sumptuous five-course meals featuring the finest Scandinavian flavors. Crafted by our skillful chefs, each dish is beautifully presented, a delight for both your eyes and your palate.
