There’s no better gift than a trip of a lifetime for your mum with Hurtigruten Expeditions’ special Mother’s Day Sale. This is your chance to spoil her and take her on a unique holiday with prices slashed by up to 20 per cent on select itineraries to Alaska, Iceland, the Americas, Antarctica, Greenland and Europe in 2021, 2022 and 2023. But hurry, this offer is for a limited time only.
Save up to 20 per cent for a 14-day itinerary to Alaska from $428pp per day and explore the vast wilderness of Alaska from Anchorage to Vancouver. It is often said that Alaska truly is bear country. North American bears simply flourish here – from grizzly, brown to black bears, you will be able to spot them all. And if you head further north, the polar bears await you.
This is the Last Frontier. Departing 31 May or 24 June 2022 onboard MS Roald Amundsen, the world’s first hybrid expedition ship, Hurtigruten will sail into Prince William Sound, see some of the most spectacular glaciers at College Fjord, Icy Bay and spot humpback whales, bald eagles and playful otters. MS Roald Amundsen will then cross Holkham Bay and you will feast on the magnificent views of Tracy and Endicott Arm, two pristine fjords with waters so calm they shimmer like a mirror. Weather permitting, you can also explore the fjords in a kayak. You will then journey to Sitka, a town with both Russian and Tlingit influence, then learn a little about Little Norway in Petersburg before taking in the impressive totem poles in Wrangell and Alert Bay. The holiday ends in the bustling city of Vancouver filled with unrepeatable memories.
You can also circumnavigate Iceland, the land of elves and volcanoes and a paradise for bird and whale watching on a 11-day itinerary onboard MS Fram from $581pp per day departing 28 July and 7 August 2022.
Your holiday starts at Reykjavik, Iceland’s quirky capital, also known as “Smoky Bay” because of the rising steam from surrounding geothermal geysers and hot springs. You will sail past well preserved houses at Stykkisholmur, the deep blue waters and crisp air of northwest Iceland and arrive at Akyreyri, the northern capital with its array of wonderful eateries. Your ship will stop at Husavik, overlooking Skjalfandi Bay which is regularly visited by white-beaked dolphins, Humpbacks, Minkes and the elusive blue whales.
Hurtigruten Expeditions is offering up to 15 per cent off select Antarctica and Greenland cruises. Part of the offerings is a 16-day expedition exploring the pristine west coast of Greenland with prices starting from $606pp per day onboard MS Fridtjof Nansen, departing on 25 June and 9 August 2022. Following the same route as the Vikings, your expedition will cross Denmark Strait, stopping at colourful Qaqortoq and exploring Maniitsoq, nicknamed the Venice of Greenland. You will be taken aback by the beauty of the Ilulissat Ice Fjord and the enchanting Evighed Fjord before sailing to Nuuk, Greenland’s photogenic capital. Throughout the journey, you will watch with wonder at the sight of musk oxen, Arctic foxes, walruses, whales and the white-tailed eagles.
For a change of pace, Hurtigruten Expeditions has up to 10 per cent off prices on select Europe voyages. A 15-day itinerary onboard MS Fridtjof Nansen from Lisbon to Portsmouth departing 23 April 2022 starts at $334pp per day.
During this journey, you will explore the vibrant, cultural cities of Lisbon and Hamburg, experience the gastronomy of Galicia, Basque and Breton and savour the wonderful wines of Porto and Bordeaux as your ship cruises along the coasts of Spain and western France.
You will call at charming medieval towns, picturesque fishing villages and cosmopolitan Hamburg, often called Venice of the North.
Bookings for these wonderful itineraries during Mother’s Day Sale are available until 23 May 2021.
