Explore Norway: 2017/18 bookings open

Connect with your inner explorer for authentic, active experiences along the world's most beautiful coastline in 2017-2018

No one takes you closer to the Norwegian fjords than our experienced captains and crew. No one takes you closer to the people who live there, their culture, traditions and way of life. For a voyage filled with real cultural insight, active experiences and delicious food from Norway's Coastal Kitchen, then look no further. 

In 2017 we are offering more variety in experiences than ever before, both on-board and ashore.

The success of the Expedition Teams will be introduced to seven of the ships sailing the Norwegian Coast – having a team of guides and storytellers that enhance the experience of nature, wildlife and culture through lectures, on-deck activities, gatherings and on-shore outdoor activities. We’ve also introduced a Young Explorers Program for 7-13 year-olds on selected ships as well as a unique concept for MS Vesterålen – a working ship – bringing you closer and giving you more insights into the Hurtigruten operation.

In addition to this, the excursions portfolio is larger than ever before, with great variety covering all interests and activity levels. In 2017, we're also introducing a new pricing structure, offering you more options and greater flexibility. 

Bookings for 2017/18 Norwegian coastal voyages are now open!

Norwegian Coastal Expedition sailings

Travel on one of our coastal expedition ships and see Norway through the native eyes of the expedition team - a concept ideal for active adventurers who love hiking. Our expedition team will meet you on board, from where you can take part in fascinating historical lectures, exciting hikes and other active excursions.

Our seven expedition ships - four of which are being renewed in 2016 to reflect the breathtaking nature we pass every day - will add a new dimension to your voyage at the heart of coastal Norway.

Cultural Sailings

We're pleased to continue with our Cultural Sailings concepts on board select Hurtigruten ships in 2017/18 - sailing that take you on a journey through the landscapes that shaped Norwegian art, music and history. 

With many on board activities and events included, and many special excursions - you will obtain in-depth knowledge and authentic experiences of the Norwegian culture that no one else can offer.

Experience our ships' unique beauty 

Every Hurtigruten ship posseses it's own character and charm, with MS Lofoten and MS Vesterålen no exception.

Guests travelling on MS Vesterålen will have the opportunity to get a "behind the scenes" look at our maritime and coastal operations.
