From Antarctica to Svalbard - Prepare to Plant Your Flag!

In 1911, Roald Amundsen planted the Norwegian flag at the South Pole. Now it's time for you to plant yours.

A Symbol of Achievement

Planting a flag in the wilderness is a symbol of achievement. For some, climbing Mount Everest is worth planting a flag, while for others just getting through a night in a tent in the back yard might be worth celebrating. With Hurtigruten's new Explorer fleet, you will have the chance to plant your personal flag in some of the most exciting and remote areas in the world.
