Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express

Known across the globe as 'The World's Most Beautiful Voyage', Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Express has been sailing Norway's waters since 1893, pioneering a route that forever changed the future of the coast and its communities.


Our Commitment

We’ve begun our most ambitious sustainability initiative ever in our 130-year history: to develop zero-emission ships tailored to the Norwegian coast by 2030. We are partnering with SINTEF, one of Europe’s largest independent research organisations, to explore solutions in energy efficiency and battery electric power. Prior to this by 2024, we will have transformed all seven of our ships with major green upgrades, in one of the largest environmental ship upgrades in Europe. Our entire fleet will be more energy efficient, cutting CO2 emissions by 25% and NOx by 80%, and three ships will be upgraded to hybrid power. On a voyage with us you won’t just see the Norwegian coast; you’ll taste it too. We are proud to support 50 local farms, bakeries, and producers from across Norway. In our onboard restaurants, enjoy the likes of melt-in-your-mouth cod from Vesterålen, award-winning cheeses from Lofoten, and quality craft beer from Bergen. Sourcing our food locally isn’t just about fresh, farm-and-fjord-to-table flavours. It’s also about achieving the lowest footprint possible and making sure there is minimal food waste.
