Hurtigruten Expeditions is expanding its 2023 Arctic Summer season with the addition of seven brand new adventures.
Spanning 11-19 days, the new departures from June to September 2023 will take in some of the most spectacular areas beyond and above the Arctic circle on board the small-size expedition cruise favourite MS Maud.
“We are thrilled to further expand our Arctic expedition cruise offering by introducing MS Maud on a series of best-of-the-best itineraries, handcrafted by our team of experts and based on our almost 130 years of Arctic experience,” says Hurtigruten Expeditions’ CEO Asta Lassesen.
“Working closely with the local communities, our small-ship expedition cruises take you where the big ships can’t, closer to the people and nature of the north.”
The ship will complement three of Hurtigruten Expeditions’ other ships already scheduled for the Arctic summer next year.
The new itineraries will depart from either Dover, United Kingdom, or Reykjavik, Iceland, and will take guests to Greenland, Svalbard, the British Isles, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland.
“From engaging encounters with the local communities to the vast wilderness and rich wildlife, our small-ship expedition cruises unlock one-of-a-kind experiences in some of the most unique areas of our planet,” says Lassesen.
“While exploring, our guests and crew not only create local value, but contribute to science projects that are vital to understanding and preserving the areas for future generations of explorers.”
