Why Explore with Hurtigruten?

Experts in Polar Waters

Top-of-the-line navigational equipment and technology, specially designed ships, ice class A propellers, and lifesaving protocol and equipment are some of the safety features that are vital when taking explorers to the polar regions. But the fact that our captain and crew are great mariners with extraordinary experience is perhaps the most important factor.

My ‘office’ is located in some of the most remote wilderness in the world, and it is filled with vast landscapes, wildlife, ice, and glaciers.
