The company mission of Hurtigruten is focused on sustainability with innovation, technology and concrete measures. In addition, the cruise company’s sustainability ambitions are linked to sustainable cities and communities, responsible consumption and production, climate action and life below water. Further, they value quality education, gender equality, peace and justice.
The earth’s vulnerable ecosystems and wildlife are threatened by climate change, plastic waste, and unsustainable mass tourism. As a counter-measure, they are investing in hybrid electric-powered expedition cruise ships and they were the first major travel company in the world to remove single-use plastic from their entire fleet. It is important for Hurtigruten to contribute to the livelihoods and welfare of small coastal communities by using local suppliers for excursions and sourcing ingredients of local produce. On its journey along the Norwegian coast, Hurtigruten will not leave visible or lasting signs of their visits.
On board Hurtigruten, you can find an expert expedition team that is eager to share their knowledge of the culture, history, wildlife, ecosystems, and more of each destination visited.
