Hurtigruten offers unique expedition cruises to some of the most remote and pristine waters of the world. As with all expeditions; nature prevails. Weather, ice and sea conditions set the final framework for all Hurtigruten’s operations. Safety and unparalleled guest experiences are at all times our top priorities. All our indicative itineraries are continuously evaluated for adaptions, whether this is due to constraints the elements unexpectedly present – or exciting possibilities nature and wildlife offer. That is why we call it an expedition.

Sail through the Bering Strait Sun 23 Aug 2020

ms Roald Amundsen

Sail through the Bering Strait, before heading into the Chukchi Sea. Your Expedition Team will start their lecture program preparing you for the days ahead. Reach Point Barrow, the northernmost point of the USA, and enter the Beaufort Sea. Be sure to keep a sharp eye open here for Bowhead and Grey whales and you may also start seeing sea ice. Continue into the Amundsen Gulf, where you can hope to observe the remarkable Smoking Hills – an amazing sight, with smoke billowing from the cliffs on the east coast of Cape Bathurst. Local Lignite – a combination of shale and pyrite – spontaneously ignites when exposed to air, due to the erosion of the hills, causing this photogenic phenomenon

★Northwest Passage★ Mon 24 Aug 2020

ms Roald Amundsen

Sail into the heart of the Northwest Passage. Since the late 15th century, the search for this fabled seaway through the Canadian Arctic was a holy grail for hardy adventurers. There are records of almost 40 expeditions that sailed these waters. The first recorded attempt was the voyage of John Cabot in 1497. The most famous journey here was James Cook’s failed attempt to sail the Passage in 1776, and of course the ill-fated Franklin expedition of 1845. The first to conquer the Northwest Passage by ship was Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen on an expedition that lasted from 1903 to 1906. During your sailing, you will attempt to land on several sites including Ulukhaktok, Cambridge Bay, Gjøa Haven, Fort Ross, Beechey Island, Dundar Harbour and Pond Inlet. In addition, you will be sailing in amazing straits with unique nature and hopefully enough ice to make it for excellent wildlife spotting
