Sail with the Experts

Hurtigruten has unmatched experience in Svalbard – dating back to 1896.  On this voyage we visit the northwestern coast of Svalbard, a stunning region of pristine nature.

Kingdom of Wildlife

As we explore, watch for seals, countless seabirds, Arctic fox, reindeer and of course, keep a sharp eye out for Svalbard’s polar bears. There’s a good chance we’ll encounter the King of the North – after all, there are more polar bears than people on the archipelago. 

This Svalbard expedition cruise offers great optional excursion opportunities such as hiking, kayaking and more on land and water.

Arctic Spring

During spring, beautiful colors and contrasts frame dramatic glaciers, majestic mountains, deep fjords, buzzing bird cliffs and endless Arctic tundra. The Midnight Sun makes it possible to fill your days and nights with unforgettable experiences.  

Svalbard feels like home to us, so we are dedicated to preserving its pristine environment for generations to come. On this Spitsbergern cruise, you can join in our “Beach Clean Up on Svalbard” activities. Hurtigruten is a proud member of the “Clean up Svalbard” team, part of our commitment to taking nothing but great photos and leaving nothing behind but footprints in the amazing areas we explore.




Hurtigruten offers unique expedition cruises to some of the purest and most remote waters of the world. As with all expeditions, nature prevails. Safety is always our top priority. We continuously evaluate our cruises to adapt to unexpected weather, ice and sea conditions, and exciting nature opportunities. That’s why we call it an expedition.
