Adventure travel company, Hurtigruten, has launched its new 20190/2020 brochure, featuring enhancements to its Norwegian Coastal Voyages.
For adventure-seekers and nature enthusiasts, the new brochure is a notable upgrade, as it allows them to customise their experience by choosing from an array of authentic adventures in Norway – from husky dog sledding and snowmobiling to cod fishing trips and mountain hikes.
The new 2019/2020 brochure includes a fleet of 12 ships and covers 34 ports along the Norwegian Coastline.
New excursion packages
Hurtigruten now offers the possibility to buy three special excursion packages of 4, 5 or 6 excursions. By pre-booking one of these packages, guests will earn onboard credit that can be spent on board for food, drinks, snacks, merchandise and even more excursions.
Northern Lights Promise
The flight-inclusive Coastal Round Voyage, which offers exclusive charter flights that depart from nine regional airports and fly directly to Bergen, has been made available to book 6 months earlier. This means that guests can now book for the 2019/20 Northern Lights season, in addition to the current 2018/19 season.
Furthermore, Hurtigruten guarantees guests who embark on the 12-day Classic Round Voyage or Astronomy Voyage, a free 6 or 7-day voyage – in case the Aurora Borealis fails to make an appearance during the journey. The Northern Lights Promise is valid on for departures from 1 October until 30 March in both the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons.
MS Roald Amundsen
In 2019, Hurtigruten will launch the world’s first hybrid-powered expedition vessel, MS Roald Amundsen. The ship which the company dubbed as “the safest and greenest” seeks to set a new standard in sustainable travel, being able to sail silently along the Norwegian coast using hybrid power technology, reducing overall CO2 emissions. Additionally, in July 2018, the company banned all single-use plastic products from its fleet with the goal of becoming the first plastic-free line.
