A Hurtigruten voyage is the best way to experience the calm, sheltered waters of Norway’s shores, the country’s people, landscape and wildlife. In the late 19th century, seasoned Norwegian Sea Captain, Richard With, started a year-round steam ship service to link northern and southern Norway, and since then the Hurtigruten fleet has moved forward to also operate in Spitsbergen, Greenland and Antarctica, offering expedition voyages to the heart of these spectacular lands.

Set off in the springtime, when the sunlight rejuvenates life along the coastline, or discover the perpetual daylight of Norways’ summer above the Arctic Circle. Witness the brilliant colours of autumn, or experience the incredible Northern Lights when winter casts its magical spell on the landscape.


Dining onboard Hurtigruten cruises is distinctly local, with Norwegian style food served at all meals. Breakfast is buffet style, with a selection of cold meats, cheese, eggs, cereals and fruit, while lunch is the famous Cold Table, with a choice of fish dishes, cold meats, salads, a selection of hot dishes and desserts and fruit. Dinner offers you a three-course set meal, but occasionally the Cold Table may be served in the evening and the set meal at lunch time.

Lunch and dinner are open seating, while dinner has a set seating. During high season, there may be several sittings, but you will be informed of times before you depart for your cruise. All vessels are fully licensed.


Children are welcome onboard all of Hurtigruten’s ships, but there may not be recreational facilities on board all of them, and reservations for children are not advisable on longer voyages.
