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, Devon Island 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
Today, cross the Davis Strait, named for the English explorer John Davis, who led three expeditions in the area between 1585 and 1587

MS Roald Amundsen is the first hybrid ship to join the Hurtigruten fleet. With new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology, she reduces fuel consumption and cuts CO2 emissions by sailing with electrical propulsion. Electrical propulsion is a great benefit to the environment and also enhances the impact of experiencing nature meaning you can travel to the most spectacular destinations in the most sustainable way.
Hurtigruten recommends pre-booking shore excursions. This can be done up to four weeks prior to departure (two weeks if paid by credit card) at the rates presented. Shore excursions are also available to book on board but spaces may be limited. Please note: all excursions booked on board will be charged in Norwegian Kroner.
There is no official dress code on board but some guests choose to change to casualwear for dinner. The weather in Norway can vary during the course of each voyage (or even during the day!) so we recommend reading our climate zone packing guide to ensure you’re ready for every possibility.
Norwegian cuisine is served on board. Chefs use only the very best locally sourced, seasonal ingredients which are collected from port each day and used to prepare a range of delicious dishes.
Specific diets can be catered for if requested in good time. Passengers on strict diets may find that there is limited choice. A 3-course vegan menu is available in the evenings on voyages of 12-days.
Most Hurtigruten ships along the Norwegian coast have an Expedition Team who undertake special activities on board such as lectures and presentations, on-deck guiding as well as hikes and outdoor activities in many ports. The majority of activities take place both inside the ships and out on deck and are designed around the season you’re sailing in. Hurtigruten aims to get guests closer to unique environments.
Visa, American Express, MasterCard and Diners Card are all accepted as payment options on board. Norwegian Kroner (NOK) is the on board currency.
Laundry rooms with washing machines, dryers and irons are available on all ships. Tokens can be purchased at reception.
The official languages on board are Norwegian and English, though some service crew also speak German. The majority of shore excursions are guided in two or three languages.
Yes, wireless internet is available on board for a small fee, unless already included in your Select or Platinum fare.
It is not common practice to tip on Hurtigruten ships on the coastal voyage. If you feel that crew members should be rewarded for providing exceptional service, tip boxes are placed in the restaurant together with envelopes.
