Hurtigruten Expeditions will increase expedition teams on all vessels to provide a wider range of activities for guests

Cruise line Hurtigruten Expeditions will offer new cruises, itineraries and guest activities during its 2023-2024 season.

During the season, the operator will provide a total of 32 expedition cruise packages taking guests to various destinations, including rarely visited places in West Africa, such as Cape Verde and Bissagos Island. The schedule also features new cruises to North America and the Caribbean and more small-ship Caribbean and Central American expedition cruises.

In addition, Hurtigruten Expeditions will add sustainable features  to its green hybrid ships.

“Exploration is not solely about geography; it’s a mindset,” said Asta Lassesen, CEO of Hurtigruten Expeditions. “We receive clear feedback from guests that they want to experience new ways to explore, and in more places. This is the reason why we continue to launch and expand our offerings to immerse in nature, culture, history, and science across the whole planet.”

The twin hybrid ships  Roald Amundsen and Fridtjof Nansen will offer six North American expedition cruises, where guests will be encouraged to partake in Citizen Science projects that includes lecture programmes for guests to be involved in scientific research.

“We offer travel with learning and personal development,” said Lassesen. “Our guests want their journey to have meaning and depth while they explore unparalleled destinations leaving the lowest possible climate and nature footprint."

Hurtigruten Expeditions will also increase expedition teams on all vessels to provide a wider range of activities for guests including kayaking, hiking and science projects: “Bigger expedition teams mean more of everything – more experts, more knowledge, more activities and more options for our guests,” said Lassesen.
