Quick overviewTOM

Single-use plastic banHurtigruten was the first major travel company to have removed single-use plastic from its entire fleet and our hotels.

Hybrid Explorer shipsHurtigruten has two hybrid-electric powered expedition cruise ships that offer a 20% reduction of fuel consumption.

Beach cleanupsHurtigruten Expedition Teams encourage guests to take part in beach clean-ups, which results in several metric tonnes of trash every year being removed.
