Hurtigruten ASA provides real experiences in unique waters. The company is a travel industry company with its roots in the coastal express route between Bergen and Kirkenes. Their cruises are more expedition voyages with trained destination & nature specialists on board the ship. For more than 115 years, Hurtigruten have been a part of the coastal areas of Norway. They have since expanded their horizons to include voyages to Greenland & the South Pole with Antarctica. Though comfortable & stylish, their ships lack many of the typical cruise liner trappings: casinos, entertainment, etc. In Hurtigruten's own words, on their voyages Mother Nature provides the entertainment, and interaction with fellow travelers and spectacular scenery is the main draw.
Fellow Passengers: Hurtigrutens guests are well-travelled, older and sophisticated, with very few families on board. They are looking for an enhanced vacation experience and are perfectly content simply enjoying the spectacular scenery and picturesque communities.
