Exploring Norway in the hands of experts
Join us on a journey of discovery into the heart and soul of Norway’s beautiful coast. These unique Norway coastal expedition voyages are accompanied by a Hurtigruten expedition team; seasoned travellers, modern-day explorers, and kindred spirits in their love of adventure. Experts in their respective fields, these specialists will passionately present you with insights into Norway’s culture, wildlife, and nature; all to enhance your journey of inner and outer discovery.
On board one of our expedition ships, we will give you the opportunity to explore the region and local culture in a more active way, with excursions, an exclusive Hiking Pass and exciting on board activities that vary by season.
The expedition of a lifetime
Choose from a wide range of optional onshore activities which add special, unforgettable experiences to your trip. As there is so much to see and do, you won’t be able to do all the hikes of the Hiking Pass plus all the excursions on offer in one trip, but you can still pick and mix those that appeal to the explorer within.
The onboard programme consists of tastings of local fresh produce and daily lectures on a range of topics such as glaciology, natural phenomena, Viking history, Nordic folklore and so much more.
After a heady day of active adventure and hiking, what better way to finish the day than relaxing and sharing a drink with your expedition team at the bar or the panorama lounge. Exchange tales of exploration over photos, socialise with your fellow travellers, enjoy a cultural performance, and whet your appetite for the next day’s many exciting experiences.
Norway’s stunning coastline makes it a true paradise for avid hikers. Take advantage of the many guided hiking opportunities on your expedition cruise with our Hiking Pass – your ticket to hiking heaven.
A Hiking Pass gives you access to hand-picked hikes accompanied by your loyal expedition team. It consists of multiple hikes throughout the duration of your voyage, depending on the season and more if local weather permits. Hikes can last between 1.5 and 4 hours long and are for those ready for a physically demanding and rewarding Norwegian experience.
