Hurtigruten was founded in 1893 out of a need to reduce travel time within Norway. Back then, Hurtigruten took on the responsibility of moving mail from one port to the other and still provides this service today. This means we can travel the Norwegian Coast throughout the year!
Although not considered an EXPEDITION CRUISE, we include mention here of “The Classic Roundtrip Voyage” from Bergen to Kirkenes to Bergen – a top bucket list voyage for most Canadians. Best time for this cruise is from September to April — experience 24 hour daylight and the Northern Lights!

Hurtigruten has maintained its position as a leading expedition cruise line and has continuously renewed its fleet to deliver a wide range of services – to the local who hops on for a short ride and to the tourist who seeks excellence in cuisine and accommodation. The company places much stress on the quality and qualifications of its staff and crew, and more recently has undertaken a lead position on green technology and sustainability.
Daniel A. Skjeldam, Hurtigruten CEO on green technology: … [use of] green fuels to lessen our emissions and banning single-use plastic to help save the single biggest threat to our oceans.”
