It’s been almost 130 years since we first pioneered expedition cruising. Join us as we continue to explore the planet, visiting some of the world’s most beautiful and pristine regions – you’ll be expanding your horizons in more ways than one!

Fantastic Adventure
Hurtigruten provides its guests unparalleled experiences in Antarctica’s polar waters, safely taking you on exciting small-boat (RIB) adventures and amazing
landings to explore the most remote continent on Earth.

Close to nature
We offer the opportunity to get close to beautiful icebergs, visit isolated scientific stations, and encounter amazing wildlife, such as penguins, seals, and whales.

Unmatched wilderness
No travel adventure can match an expedition cruise to Antarctica: the windiest, driest, and most pristine continent on the planet. Our voyages into this protected wilderness are truly unique and offer extraordinary travel experiences. We promise Antarctica is different from any other destination you’ll ever visit.
