Entertaining

An explorer voyage with Hurtigruten is rigged towards maximizing your experiences of the places we are going to. On days when we are not landing we encourage you to spend as much time as possible out on deck. Join our educational talks and lectures at different locations on board.

A travel experience is often much richer if you have knowledge and understanding about the nature, wildlife, culture and history of your destination.

Our Expedition team will make sure you are well prepared for the experiences ahead of you. They will also re-capitulate and answer questions in hindsight. You will not find bingo, arcade games and entertainment theatres often found on conventional cruise ships.

Our aim is to get you closer to unique environments and to allow you to share the experience with your fellow travellers. Occasionally there may be some light entertainment on board in the evenings.

Artworks

Art has, in our 125-year history, always been important for Hurtigruten. We have thousands works of art aboard our vessels, and probably have one of the most extensive art collections in private ownership in Norway. Art is an important part of our proud history, and our guest experience. It is with pride that we can call us Norway`s largest seaborne art gallery
