August 2022

Sail to the Edge of the World

Celebrate 130 years of Hurtigruten being Norway’s coastal lifeline on two iconic voyages, The Svalbard Express and The North Cape Express. One revived from history, the other poised to make history.

The Norwegian Coast - Hurtigruten's Home Since 1893

Life aboard has transformed since Hurtigruten first started sailing the Norwegian coast in 1893, but the expansive wilderness, spectacular wildlife, and magical light at the edge of the world endure.

Both the Svalbard Express and North Cape Express venture deep into the Arctic Circle to immerse you in the lives and flavors of Norway’s coast, deliver vital supplies to coastal villages, and create memories that last a lifetime – all beneath the magical northern lights.

Together, they encapsulate Hurtigruten's pioneering heritage and herald a future of authentic, sustainable, and meaningful travel that would make their founding father proud.

The Iconic Svalbard Express

Hurtigruten founded the first regular summer sailing to the remote Arctic archipelago of Svalbard in 1968, becoming a lifeline for its community until 1982. Back then, the route was one of the most reliable links the remote settlements on Svalbard had to mainland Norway.

Now, The Svalbard Express is your chance to experience the far-flung feel of the High Arctic, aglow in the magical midnight sun.

Svalbard Express Highlights

  • Embark on a nostalgic cruise along the Norwegian coast up to the edge of the world, all the way to the Svalbard archipelago in the High Arctic, then back 
  • Enjoy life aboard the exceptional MS Trollfjord, freshly renovated in 2023 with the finest materials and craftsmanship 
  • Visit a range of charming coastal communities on mainland Norway and on Svalbard, and take your pick from authentic, locally run optional excursions  
  • Experience variations of summer along the entire length of Norway, including 24 hours of daylight from the glorious Midnight Sun at the height of the season

The Iconic North Cape Express

As the northern lights begin their winter’s dance in the skies above, Hurtigruten sails from Oslo, Norway’s vibrant capital.

For the first time, Hurtigruten takes guests on a voyage along the full length of the country’s incredible coastline, spending up to six hours at each port to better showcase the iconic flavors, adventures, and pristine beauty of Norway.

Immerse yourself in the culture of modern cities and traditions of secluded villages. Be still in nature, savor local foods and flavors, listen for the splash of a breaching whale while you experience history in the making.

For an authentic connection with the heritage, stories, and wild beauty of Norway’s coast, choose The North Cape Express.

North Cape Express Highlights

  • Sail the Norwegian coast, one of the world’s longest coastlines. Travel from Bergen to North Cape in Arctic Norway, at the top of Europe, and back south to the capital, Oslo.
  • Come aboard the exceptional MS Trollfjord, freshly renovated in 2023 with the finest materials and craftsmanship
  • Learn about the communities that stretch along the coast and join in on exciting optional excursions that change according to the season
  • Sail in fall, winter, or spring. Experience a warmer climate in the south, snow-covered mountains, and maybe even the Northern Lights in the Arctic.
