Hurtigruten was born on the Norwegian coast almost 130 years ago. It has sailed the fjords, navigated its islands, admired its mountains and braved its weather, every day, every season and every year.
No one knows the coast and its attractions better. Hurtigruten’s heritage is rich with sustaining remote coastal communities and protecting the spectacular nature they sail through.
As you pass home and farms; go in and out of ports, you will see the locals wave to the ships – a sure sign of affection that is part of the local culture as much as the fjords themselves.
For decades, Hurtigruten has cultivated strong relationships with Norwegian suppliers, big and small, old and new, to ensure the highest standards and best practices. Just take a look at the optional seasonal excursions and the mouth-watering delicacies made with locally sourced ingredients from Norway’s Coastal Kitchen.
Throughout your journey, you will meet enthusiastic coastal experts who will regale you with wonderful stories and share their wealth of knowledge of local customs and history.
