The 37 itineraries include sailings to Alaska, Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland, North America, the Northwest Passage and Arctic Canada, and South America, featuring a long list of bucket list destinations and some of the most remote and untouched places in the world. The journeys range from eight days to 23 days for the longer voyages to Antarctica, the Falklands, and South Georgia, also known as the Ultimate Expedition.

As the world’s leading expedition cruise company, we are constantly looking at making our adventure trips more appealing to a wider audience, and we are pleased to now offer bilingual sailings on so many departures. This program has been a success among our Hurtigruten France guests for years and is a natural expansion,” said Kristin Erz, Sales Director, Canada, Hurtigruten Expeditions.

All 2022/23 French escorted sailings can be found here. Each sailing requires a minimum of 20 French-speaking passengers.
