Imagine being on deck surrounded by a group of people bursting with excitement in anticipation of what the day will bring.
Enjoy the sight of crystal-clear waters stretching out down the fjord, surrounded by majestic mountain peaks. Then, the expedition leader welcomes you ashore, and your adventure begins. With Hurtigruten, you can now join expeditions along Norway’s rugged coast on seven of our ships. On each of these ships you will find skilled expedition team members who are dedicated to giving you the most exciting experiences. They host lectures and presentations, lead special activities and guide you on excursions and scenic hikes.
Our hikes, activities and lectures are always offered in English. Before lectures, written summaries will also be provided in Norwegian, German and French.
Before going on a hike, you should plan your equipment based on the season and the weather forecast. As a year-round rule of thumb, you should pack high-quality walking shoes or boots suitable for rainy and muddy conditions. A hooded windand waterproof jacket, hiking pants, gloves, a hat, a water bottle and sunglasses are also recommended. It’s also a good idea to bring a pair of lightweight binoculars and a camera.
