Explore the Arctic under the Midnight Sun

Five brand new expedition cruises showcasing the wonders of Greenland, Svalbard, Iceland, the British Isles and remote North Atlantic archipelagos.

Natural wonders & ancient cultures – a world apart

The eastern North Atlantic is a diverse region that encompasses everything from immense Arctic landmasses to remote clusters of islands seemingly lost in the vastness of the ocean. Come with us and discover places that have been lost in time, whether that’s craggy islands alive with nesting seabird colonies, awe-inducing vistas of snowcapped mountains and lonely volcanoes, or lands where folklore is alive and the ancient imprint of the Norse settlers remains. 

Our much-loved expedition ship MS Maud has been picked for this adventure of a lifetime, taking you to a place where nature reigns supreme and the faint whisper of a bygone world can still be heard on the breeze.

Several destinations in one – discover more 

With so much to discover we’ve decided to combine multiple destinations into single trips, giving you the chance to explore more. Some areas are so remote there’s only one way to explore them – expedition style. So, working with the elements and nature, we’ll take you to the largest fjord system on the planet, or the wild empty silence of Svalbard, and we’ll do it all during the beautiful and mellow Arctic summer when the sun will be our constant companion.

First-class facilities

Keep in shape at the indoor gym, where you’ll find a range of fitness equipment for your use, or perhaps just relax and admire the outdoor scenery from the panoramic sauna or whilst sitting in a hot tub on MS Maud’s top-deck observation platform. 

Join our excursions

Explore our destinations even further through a wide range of optional excursions. Join in an exciting hike up a mountain ridge or step across the boundary between the far north and south in our Arctic Circle Crossing Ceremony.

Pre- and post-programmes

Extend your Hurtigruten adventure by adding a Pre- or Post-programme before or after your cruise. We offer many opportunities to explore our destinations even further, with excursions, city tours, and multi-day land programmes.
