Discover Your inner scientist

One of the jewels in Hurtigruten Expedition's crown is our onboard Science Center and Science Programme. Found on deck 5, the center is a hive of active research, analysis and learning. Throughout your voyage, there will be multiple opportunities to get involved with Citizen Science projects, and build a better understanding of the destinations we explore.

Get onboard with ORCA

Founded in 2001, ORCA has become one of the UK’s leading whale and dolphin conservation charities, dedicated to the long-term protection of these beautiful animals and their habitats in the UK and European waters. ORCA first joined us onboard in 2019 and since then their trained ocean conservationists have been a permanent part of our Expedition Team onboard MS Maud. Using the remote locations we visit to monitor whale and dolphin populations, the team also deliver workshops and lectures for all our guests onboard. There are multiple ways you can get involved to help support these beautiful animals and ultimately improve the health and well-being of our oceans.
