About Hurtigruten

Since 1893, Hurtigruten has been an integral part of the Norwegian coast, a beloved household name cherished by locals for generations. The route pioneered by the cruise line connects the country, transports people, delivers goods, and supports communities. Hurtigruten has its roots on the Norwegian coast – sailing its fjords, navigating its islands, admiring its mountains, and braving its weather every day, every season, and every year for 130 years.

No one knows the coast better than Hurtigruten. And there is no one better to discover Norway with than them.
