Hurtigruten Cruises

Hurtigruten
  • Overview
  • Dining

Founded in 1893, Hurtigruten is a cruise line specialising in remote coastal voyages to magnificent Norwegian towns, along with sailing through the Fjords.

The largest ships in Millennium Class hold just 1000 passengers, and boast 24-hour cafeterias along with swimming pools and jacuzzis. Due to the smaller sizes of the 14 stylish ships, you get to see places larger ships can’t get to. Fresh cuisine is in abundance on board, and is complimented by a relaxed, intimate and casual atmosphere that often inspires people to create new friendships with fellow passengers. There is a huge selection of tours available for those wanting to visit local museums, go kayaking or even just explore the natural beauty of Norway.

Northern Lights trips are ever popular, along with sailings to the Fjords and the constantly evolving scenery of the Antarctic Peninsulas. They also do journeys to the rest of Northern Europe, Iberia, the Mediterranean, Svalbard, Iceland, Greenland, Transatlantic & South America.

If getting up, close and personal to some of the most breath-taking scenery the world has to offer is what you’re after, Hurtigruten could be the perfect cruise line for you.
