Who goes on Hurtigruten cruise ships?

You'll meet a real cross section of society on a Hurtigruten voyage. Norwegians use the local coastal service as a means of transport and often only stay on for a couple of ports. Other travelers treat the Bergen-Kirkenes-Bergen round trip as a regular cruise and come from all over the world but particularly the U.K. and Germany.

On the expedition ships, again, there will be multiple nationalities, including more North Americans. Expect to meet the kind of people who care about sustainability and value learning and adventure over luxury. You'll find some families onboard the Norwegian voyages and even the expeditions, which tend to attract an older audience.

Do I have to dress up on a Hurtigruten cruise?

Not really. There's no formal dress code, although you should not arrive at dinner in shorts. The non-expedition ships are slightly dressier than the expedition fleet.

Is everything free on Hurtigruten cruises?

No, and the pricing structure is complicated. On the Norwegian coastal voyage, you can opt for a Basic, Select or Platinum package, all of which have different inclusions. The Basic package is very basic indeed -- you don't even get included tea or coffee; the others have varying inclusions related to beverages, Wi-Fi and dining. None of the packages include excursions, though you can purchase excursion bundles to save money.

On the expedition cruises, soft drinks, wine and beer with meals, and tea and coffee and limited Wi-Fi are included. Some excursions by Zodiac are included but others cost extra.

Gratuities are not expected, but tip boxes are available for anybody who wants to reward a crew member.

What are Hurtigruten’s most popular activities?

The most popular activities for cruisers choosing Hurtigruten are the land-based shore tours, and with several port calls in one day (on the Coastal Voyages), there are plenty of opportunities for passengers to get out there and see Norway's vast wilderness. Among the most popular choices are hiking, kayaking and cycling and in winter, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and husky driving. On northern lights sailings, staying up late to try and see the lights (or requesting a wake-up call) is also quite popular.

On the expedition voyages, you'll rarely see anyone skip a shore excursion, and onboard the lectures always draw a crowd as well. Many cruisers also enjoy participating in "citizen science" projects.

Why go with Hurtigruten?

  • The classic Norwegian coastal voyage is arguably one of the most scenic in the world
  • Selected winter voyages in Norway offer a Northern Lights Promise -- or a free cruise
  • State-of-the-art, sustainable expedition program explores the poles and the tropics

Best for: Adventurous types who enjoy cultural immersions

Not for: Luxury travelers or anyone seeking lots of onboard activities

Challenging to book what I wanted

I had to phone the customer centre in Norway to book my four nights, and booking this way means that the price is broken down so you pay for the travel, then the cabin, then meals, choosing whether you pay for one, two or three meals each day.Although the Nordlys is part of the Hurtigruten group and used by local people in Norway to travel between small ports up and down the coast, in the UK the website seems intent on only allowing you to book an 11 night sailing (Bergen to North Cape and return).Read More
