What is an Expedition Cruise?
Find out what makes an Expedition Cruise one epic adventure.

Embarking on an expedition, you’ll be travelling to some of the most remote and pristine places on the planet. These are areas where nature reigns supreme and where wildlife live free.
Itineraries on expedition cruises are not completely set in stone. This gives the flexibility of responding to challenging elements and to grasp new opportunities for exploration as they arise. The option to divert from course is an essential and exciting aspect of expedition cruises.

The Destinations

Go beyond the usual highlights and iconic cities, going further to remote communities and hidden vistas few get to see. Encounter rare and exotic wildlife all around you, from elks to eagles, penguins to polar bears, and walruses to whales.
An expedition cruise with ventures to places many have only ever dreamed about: Antarctica, Alaska, Norway, Lake Titicaca, the Northwest Passage, Machu Picchu, the Caribbean, the Gálapagos Islands, Svalbard, the British Isles… the list goes on.

Hurtigruten Expeditions Fleet: A World of Intimate Luxury and Exploration

Expedition fleet ranges from small and agile ships to medium-sized, hybrid-powered vessels. At home on your haven at sea, you’ll experience an informal, welcoming atmosphere, comfortable cabins, luxurious suites, and stylish interiors made from natural materials.
All are modern ice-class ships suitable for polar sailing, combining advance technology with efficient engines and light fuels. Onboard Science Centers act as the heart and hub of the ship, featuring advanced microscopes with an impressive array of biological and geological slides.
