No one takes you deeper into the Norwegian fjords than the experienced captains and crew on Hurtigruten. And no one takes you closer to the people who live there, their culture, traditions and way of life. So if you are looking for a voyage filled with real cultural insight, active experiences and delicious food from Norway's Coastal Kitchen, then you should look no further. Welcome on board the original coastal voyage with Hurtigruten.
Fred. Olsen offers guests perhaps the most authentic way to discover this uniquely-blessed region, home to some of the most incredible scenery on Earth. We take advantage of our long Norwegian heritage, smaller ships ready-made for navigating labyrinthine fjords, and Norwegian Intercoastal Pilots who know these waters intimately.
The winter months in Norway are something truly special, and adventure is most definitely in the air above the Arctic Circle. Stand amazed as the graceful Northern Lights weave its rainbow of colours across the starlit sky. Although this spectacular display can't be guaranteed, the best time to catch it is from October to March, and from the deck of a Hurtigruten ship, far from artificial ambient light.
Travelling in Norway with Hurtigruten offers you an active experience, with a choice of more than 70 excursions in 2018/19. You will have the opportunity to take part in lectures by our on-board expedition teams and truly gain insight into the local way of life.
We invite you to connect with your inner explorer and discover the seldom-visited shores of Spitsbergen, Greenland, Iceland, Antarctica, South America and Canada. Each adventure is a voyage through pristine environments only accessible by ship encountering incredible wildlife, beautiful icebergs and experiencing fascinating cultures.
