Our ships

Since 1893, our ships have been a hallmark of the Norwegian coast & beyond. On all of the ships in today’s fleet you will find modern facilities carefully blended with true character.

About the fleet

For the discerning explorer at sea

Our fleet of expedition ships have been designed to give you the very best expedition experience, allowing you to delve into exploration and discovery, and enjoy the premium relaxation and wellness options on board.

Cleaner and greener

Hurtigruten Expedition’s ultimate goal is to operate our ships completely emissions-free. We stopped using heavy fuel oil over a decade ago. We were the first major travel company to remove single-use plastic from all our ships.

Exploration heritage

All our ships are named after legends of the Golden Age of polar exploration. This is no coincidence. Hurtigruten Expeditions traces its roots back to great polar heroes and has pioneered some of the most spectacular expeditions in human history.

A passion for science

The Science Center lies at the core of many of our expedition ships. Featuring high-tech equipment, a library and interactive computer screens, this is where your Expedition Team share their deep knowledge of nature.
