Do you want to work as an analyst in one of Norway's most exciting and innovative companies?

Hurtigruten Group is the world’s largest expedition cruise company, with Hurtigruten Expeditions operating eight expedition vessels, three of which are battery-powered hybrid-electric cruise vessels, and Hurtigruten Norway operating seven vessels. Hurtigruten Group believes its product offerings in Hurtigruten Expeditions, Hurtigruten Norway, and Hurtigruten Destinations differs significantly from the offering of other expedition cruise and adventure travel operators.

The customer offering has been purposefully designed to reach a wide range of customer segments. Hurtigruten Group offers its guests the opportunity to get closer to nature in beautiful areas off the beaten path in order to experience local wildlife, culture, and activities – with a minimal environmental footprint. Operating smaller, custom-built vessels, Hurtigruten Expeditions and Hurtigruten Norway’s vessels can go where others cannot and their crew and staff are very familiar with the waters they sail in, which are among the most challenging in the world.

In Hurtigruten Expeditions, the day-to-day itineraries and programmes are adjusted based on weather and local conditions, ensuring optimal sightings of nature and wildlife, cultural events in several ports of call, and other experiences. Hurtigruten Norway voyages lets the guest immerse in the everyday life along the rugged Norwegian coasts visiting small villages, admiring beautiful landscapes, and experiencing the Norwegian culture and wildlife through a wide range of excursions. Hurtigruten Destinations brings the guest to the northernmost settlement in the world on the Archipelago of Svalbard to experience the Arctic frontier like no other place on earth. All of Hurtigruten Group’-s business segments allow the guests to experience being a part of the destination – rather than simply viewing it from the ship.
