About Hurtigruten

Hurtigruten is a daily passenger and freight shipping service along Norway’s western and northern coast between Bergen and Kirkenes. We also offer Explorer voyages in Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland, Spitsbergen and across the Transatlantic.  

Destinations include Iceland, Greenland and Antarctica. Hurtigruten’s eleven coastal ships still carry freight and guests along the coast of Norway to 34 daily ports of call. Our captains have extensive maritime expertise and experience and bring guests and goods safely from port to port. Every day one of our ships departs Bergen heading north to Kirkenes. The full round trip lasts 12 days and is of many called “the world’s most beautiful voyage”. Today, as they have been more than 120 years, our ships are the best way to explore the Norwegian coast, its nature and culture.
