50 Degrees North, a Nordic specialist tour operator and wholesaler, has a global partnership with Hurtigruten. We offer all of Hurtigruten's magnificent voyages along the long and rugged Norwegian coast as well as Hurtigruten's entire range of Expedition voyages to the Polar Regions.
There are many reasons why 50 Degrees North is the ideal travel company for booking Hurtigruten voyages. We have been selling Hurtigruten products for close to a decade and have personally travelled on their ships; we have live availability information, best rates available, and can provide instant booking confirmations; and we have unparalleled expertise of the Nordics, the High Arctic and now also Antarctica.
Furthermore, 50 Degrees North and Hurtigruten share the ethos of being a leader in sustainable and low impact tourism, and we are very excited about the way that Hurtigruten is transforming cruise travel as we know it. Indeed, Hurtigruten is leading a green revolution in sea travel through their introduction of three new hybrid exploration ships – starting in 2019 with MS Roald Amundsen – which will significantly reduce their emissions. The company is also leading the way in environmentally friendly travel through their ban of single-use plastic, recycling all waste, and daily food deliveries from local suppliers. They raise awareness of environmental conservation through on-board lectures and participate in local organizations, such as the Clean Up Svalbard eco-initiative that aims to keep Svalbard’s environment as clean as possible.
