FREEDOM SALE: Hurtigruten celebrates Australia’s reopening with huge cruise discounts

The latest Hurtigruten sale will be music to the ears of anyone who loves sustainable exploration cruising.

For more than 125 years, Hurtigruten Expeditions has transported adventurous travellers to some of the most remote reaches of the world. Australians have boarded their sustainable ships to seek out the shores of Antarctica and the Arctic, learning from onboard experts as they go.

The Norwegian company is a pioneer in cruising and a leader in terms of sustainability. It was the first cruise company to have hybrid propulsion in its portfolio, with the launch of MS Roald Amundsen and MS Fridtjof Nansen. This is an exceptional and important achievement, considering Hurtigruten journeys to some of the world’s most fragile ecosystems.

From far-flung Svalbard to Antarctica, rugged West Africa to Iceland and Alaska to the Americas, Hurtigruten is a true pole to pole expedition company. The company specialises in stunning wilderness areas with equally spectacular animals – polar bears and penguins included. And this Hurtigruten sale is no exception.

The Hurtigruten sale includes several bucket-list worthy destinations such as Antarctica, the Arctic, West Africa or Iceland.

These are the best ones to book before they all sell out.
