Norwegian Cruise Norwegian Cruises Coastal Cruises

Norwegian Coastal Voyages - More than Just Destinations
Norway's dramatic 1,250-mile west coast is one of Europe's great attractions and for more than 100 years it has been the popular journey of a Norwegian cruise. This destination offers travelers a unique combination of history, culture and incredible vistas. On Hurtigruten's Norwegian Coastal Voyages our fleet of modern, first class cruise ships makes 34 ports-of-call between Bergen and Kirkenes. We travel above the Arctic Circle, from tiny fishing villages to major cities - allowing secure but easy on/off access, usually in the center of town, for independent exploring or to partake in a variety of included and optional excursions. Hurtigruten explorers have the opportunity to choose from adventures that include a dog sledding safari; Svolvaer's Ice Gallery; a visit to the North Cape; or an evening of Norwegian folk songs, hymns, and classical music in Tromso's Arctic Cathedral. We offer a variety of Norwegian Coastal Cruises with air-inclusive programs for travelers who prefer the flexibility of doing their own sightseeing and dining in major cities but appreciate the convenience of a pre-packaged program. We also offer fully escorted Norwegian cruise vacations, packed with unique holiday experiences.

World Cruises Norwegian Coastal Voyage Norwegian Cruise Vacations

World Cruises Filled with Wonder
If you have a grand sense of adventure and a generous amount of leisure time, then one of Hurtigruten's World Cruises is for you. Our southbound voyage cruises depart from Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland and end 66 days later in Argentina. You will sail the seas of the Arctic, Atlantic, Caribbean, Pacific and South Pole. Along the way you will experience the autumn foliage of New England, enjoy Pt. Canaveral and other Eastern seaboard destinations during the lovely days of October, and enjoy the breathtaking Chilean fjords in spring. In addition, you will bask in the warmth of the tropics for a number of glorious sun-drenched weeks. Enjoy fascinating excursions along the western Atlantic seaboard and the eastern Pacific coast, featuring PolarCirkel landings and expert guides. Our World Cruises include all this and more and start at $17,499.

If you are adventurous, but only have a couple of weeks or a month to spare, then our Antarctica to Arctic segment cruises might be the voyage you've been looking for. With these northbound segments starting at $4,199, you will begin in the southernmost part of the world, departing from Ushuaia, Argentina and finding your way to Iceland's unique capital, Reykjavik. However you choose to experience these educational journeys, you will travel on the MS Fram, the newest, most luxurious expedition cruise ship in the Hurtigruten fleet.

Antarctica Cruise Adventures
Penguin lovers should pay particular attention to our air-inclusive Antarctica programs on board the MS Nordnorge and the MS Fram, departing Buenos Aires and Santiago, November-February. These expedition voyages feature naturalist guides, noted expert guest lecturers and numerous PolarCirkel boat landings on "The White Continent." Sail across the Drake Passage to the Antarctic Peninsula, taking in the glaciers and icebergs, gentoo penguins, humpback and killer whales, elephant and fur seals as well as Chile's fjords, snow-capped mountains and fishing villages. Our shorter itineraries concentrate mainly on the Antarctic Peninsula, while the longer itineraries add stops in South Georgia and the Falklands Islands. New for the 2008-2009 season is a cruise taking guests as far south as Marguerite Bay, rarely visited even by Antarctic standards. Optional excursions range from the high-energy Tango Show at the Esquina Carlos Gardel to the breathtaking Torres del Paine. Pre- and post programs include Easter Island, Macchu Picchu and Iguazu Falls.

Spectacular Spitsbergen Cruises

Zodiac and PolarCirkel boat landings, knowledgeable expedition guides and lectures create an intimate learning experience.

Greenland Exploration Cruises
The 310-berth MS Fram, named after Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen's Polar ship, was built exclusively for our new Greenland Expedition Voyages and was launched in May, 2007. These expeditions bring you to the world's most active glaciers, calving of icebergs and close contact with the local Inuit population while providing cultural and historic insight through excursions and lectures.
