Updated On Board Safety Measures


With over 127 years of experience, Hurtigruten have established strict procedures to protect you from infection. Since the Coronavirus pandemic, the cruise line has taken various actions to keep guests safe during their time on board. As their normal service resumes, they will be reducing the overall number of guests on their ships, adding more seating sessions to restaurants so fewer guests dine at the same time, instead of self-service buffets, chefs will serve food directly to your individual plate and the kitchen will continue to uphold its usual high standards of hygiene and quality.

Alongside this, every crew member will undergo a health check and have completed WHO’s official COVID-19 course for hygiene procedures and infection management. To discover more about your experience on board, view Hurtigruten’s updated healthy and safety procedures here.

About Hurtigruten

When the Norwegian government decided to create a connection between the north and the south, Richard With and his friend, Anders Holthe, took on the challenge of thoroughly mapping the seas along the coastline. In 1893, Captain Richard With’s steamer, DS Vesteraalen, was brought into regular service along the coast of Norway and Hurtigruten were established. Over 120 years later, Hurtigruten is still a key part of Norwegian life.


Hurtigruten cruise ships

Known as the ‘greenest fleet in the world’, Hurtigruten is leading the way in innovative technology for green and clean exploration. With the introduction of hybrid powered ships, biodegradable hydraulic oils and lubricants as well as the promise to ban single use plastics with Hurtigruten, the future is green.

Each ship is designed to allow you to fully appreciate the spectacular scenery through which they sail. Comfortable cabins, panoramic lounges and a friendly atmosphere comprise the core of the on board experience. Informality is key, leaving you free to relax and enjoy the landscapes at will, whilst the modest size of the ships encourage passengers to interact with like-minded and interesting people.

The cruise line will dazzle you with their specialised destination focused itineraries. Travel with Hurtigruten and experience an ever changing landscape of sapphire fjords, snow-capped peaks, quaint farms and bustling fishing villages hugging the Norwegian coast line – not forgetting, of course, the Northern Lights.
