New Arctic itineraries have been revealed by Hurtigruten for their 2019 season.
The new itineraries include a Northwest Passage on the new Roald Amundsen and multiple voyages in Svalbard.
CEO of Hurtigruten, Daniel Skjeldam, commented: “While others sail through the Northwest Passage with older ships and heavy oil, we will use the Roald Amundsen, the world’s greenest vessel. We will be the first in the world to conquer the Northwest Passage with battery packs and hybrid propulsion. Both us and our guests are committed to preserving the areas we explore.”
The Arctic remains one of the world’s uncharted regions allowing guests to broaden their horizons. Guests will have the opportunity to venture ashore with Hurtigruten’s expert expedition team who will take you on landings and hikes to explore the polar region without disturbing the fragile wildlife and nature.
Hurtigruten are also offering voyages that sail along Norway’s coast in 2019 on the Roald Amundsen and Fridtjof Nansen. These voyages are always very popular as you can even catch a glimpse of the stunning Northern Lights.
For cruises that depart Tromso, there will now be ports of call at Murmansk and Frans Josef Land.
Daniel Skjeldam, also added: “Frans Josefs Land is one of the world’s most spectacular, yet at least visited destinations. The Arctic regions of Russia have enormous potential and are perfect for Hurtigruten expeditions.”
