After your trip, a compiled version of your voyage’s Photography Channel video footage will be available on Hurtigruten’s social media pages such as Facebook and Vimeo/YouTube as an open source for your use.

Free digital downloads - Build your own visual story of 'exploration'

Professional still photos and video footage taken on your voyage by our professional nature and wildlife photographers are available as an open source for all guests to download. This is an amazing way to augment your own photos for social media sharing and personal photo books. Photos and videos are available online along with other information such as wildlife lists and daily programmess – even daily de-brief sessions conducted by the Expedition Team - to help you create, preserve, and share the experiences and spectacular images of your adventure.

Explorer voyage photo book - Easy and personal

If you prefer, we can build your entire photo book for you with photos taken by our professional onboard photographers. Or, use the collection as a base and customise the photo book with your own photos. Either way, you’ll be able to access Blurb, our post-trip, web-based photo book tool, which provides both hard copy and e-book photo book options.
