Norway Cruise

Hurtigruten’s Norway: Sled Dogs, King Crabs and the Northern Lights

When most people think of a cruise ship vacation, they probably envision white sand beaches, frozen rum drinks and of course, catching a great tan.

For the luxury cruise line Hurtigruten, cruising the world isn’t always about fun in the sunshine. Relaxation is great, but those cruising Norway with Hurtigruten are in for the arctic adventure of a lifetime.

A Cottage in Norway

Where else can you spend a week sailing Scandinavian fjords, leading a team of sled dogs across a glacier and experiencing the majestic Northern Lights in all their glory?

A new itinerary from Hurtigruten challenges guests to step outside the boundaries of a traditional cruise to experience the Norwegian Sea’s raw beauty.

Cruising Norway in Style

The itinerary takes guests on tour of Norway complete with overnight stays in an ice hotel, a king crab safari expedition, sleigh rides to frozen fjords, and more. There are more than 200 activities when you cruise with Hurtigruten, so there’s something special for everyone.


Northern Lights

The trip begins in the Norwegian town of Bergen, a place settled by vikings nearly 1,000 years ago. From there, a 6-day cruise North treats guests to spectacular views of the Northern Lights, a phenomenon so bright, it can be seen from space. There’s nothing like it on Earth.
