Ship Charters and Corporate & Incentive Travel

For over 125 years, Hurtigruten has been cruising along the beautiful and awe-inspiring coast of Norway. Today, we offer the widest selection of Expedition Cruises in polar waters, and several other unforgettable destinations around the world. A Hurtigruten Expedition Cruise is an unrivaled, fully customizable incentive experience.

Our Expedition Cruises are designed to provide a true adventure, with a premium onboard experience, and activities both on and off the ship. When selecting a cruise line to partner with on your charter and incentive programs, it's essential to choose a company you can trust, with a solid track record for delivering exceptional guest experiences. Hurtigruten’s dedicated Corporate & Incentive team will work with you to customize and tailor every aspect of your program, from the pre-planning stages all the way to escorting you on board to ensure your program runs without a hitch.

Here are just a few reasons why you should choose one of our cruises:

  • Incomparable Expertise: As the world leader in exploration travel, Hurtigruten has unmatched experience since 1893 making landings in some of the most difficult-to-reach places in polar waters and beyond,  providing authentic, immersive, and engaging experiences for all guests.
  • Up-Close Experience: Our small, purpose-built expedition ships are designed for just 200 – 500 plus guests, and are available for full-ship, half-ship, and block charters to fit the size of your program. 
  • Life & Atmosphere On Board: A Hurtigruten expedition is best experienced in a warm sweater, not a black tie. Guests traveling aboard our ships can relax and connect with their group in a casual and friendly atmosphere, in remarkable comfort. 
  • Unique Itineraries: Hurtigruten offers an exciting array of destinations, with several options conveniently accessed from the U.S., including in-depth Alaska sailings and intriguing circumnavigations of Iceland or Svalbard, the realm of the polar bear. Whether your guests are setting foot on awe-inspiring Antarctica or enjoying a special cruise highlighting the west coast of the U.S., we offer unique itineraries at a variety of voyage lengths.
  • Exceptional People: Each of our voyages are guided by a handpicked, expert team of passionate expedition team leaders, eager to share their knowledge of the region’s landscapes, history, and wildlife, ensuring an authentic and immersive experience, no matter the destination. Moreover, the friendly and devoted onboard crew are committed to delivering on all of your group's needs.  
  • Leader in Sustainability, Green Technology, & Environmental Protection: At Hurtigruten, we seek to leave behind a footprint we are proud of—and that your guests can be proud of, too. Since July 2018, we have removed all single-use plastic from our entire fleet, and set new industry standards by building and operating the world’s first hybrid electric-powered expedition ships in 2019 and 2020. Learn more about our sustainable development goals.
