Hurtigruten is the world's leading expedition cruise company with a focus on science and learning while you travel. Our small ships (around 500 guests) explore some of the most unique and fascinating destinations in the world: Antarctica, Alaska, the British Isles, the Caribbean, the Galapagos, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Russia, and Western Africa.
With Scandinavian design throughout, our ships also feature a state-of-the-art Science Center, and we encourage guests to participate in our Citizen Science programs. Project focus depends on the destination. For Antarctica, for instance, it includes surveying the penguin population, studying leopard seals, or research seabird distribution, among many other programs.
