A frequent typo of Hurtigruten is Hurtigrutten, the company runs a variety of Norwegian, Spitsbergen and Greenland cruises. The cruises focus on the natural wonders, phenomenal landscapes and wildlife of the regions that they visit. Our ships call at a variety of ports, giving guests the opportunity to explore remote villages and towns.
Some of the most popular types of Hurtigrutten cruises are those which visit the Northern Lights, which are also known as the Aurora Borealis. These cruises visit the remote northern regions Norway, where the natural phenomena are often seen illuminating the sky in dazzling strikes of green, yellow, blue and pink lights. However there is no way of predicting when the Aurora Borealis will appear. You chances of seeing the Northern Lights are increased if you are above the Arctic Circle, there is a new moon and you are away from artificial lights.
We also have a range of Hurtigruten Hurtigrutten cruises which visit the epic glaciers, icebergs and mountains of Spitsbergen. The region is the only place in Europe where you can see wild polar bears in their natural habitat. All of our expedition voyages include lectures about the wildlife, geology and nature of the regions you visit from onboard experts.
All Hurtigrutten cruises are informal, with the focus being on the natural and cultural attractions of the places they visit. All ships have a bar, an observation deck, a panorama lounge and a restaurant which serves fresh seasonal cuisine. During many of the voyages there are a range of optional activities available such as dog sledding, visiting the North Cape and Viking feasts.
