When Do You Want To Go?

Join Hurtigruten on a 22-day expedition cruise starting and ending in Dover to the coast of Norway and all the way north to the Svalbard archipelago. Sailing from Dover, you’ll head straight for the Norwegian coast where you get to explore dramatic and enchanting fjords like Trollfjord, Hjørundfjord, Sognefjord and Lysefjord. You'll visit remote villages and historic cities to learn more about Norway, its history, the people and their culture and marvel at impressive mountains and glaciers serving as perfect backdrops along the way.

Your ship, the MS Maud will cross the Arctic Circle, where days grow shorter and nights longer, improving your chances of seeing the magical Northern Lights. During your exploration of the Arctic region, you’ll see a range of birdlife on Bear Island and look out for polar bears at Hornsund. Isfjord boasts dramatic landscapes while Bellsund has fascinating hunting and trapping history.

  • Spot polar bears in the Svalbard archipelago
