Agurtxane, Hurtigruten

Hurtigruten, Arctic & River Cruises

The Nordic region and Russia lends itself well for a coastal or river voyage. We have brought you a selection of new and classic routes on board new ships, and traditional older boats lovingly converted to match modern standards.

50 Degrees North, as a Nordic specialist incoming tour operator, celebrates our global partnership with Hurtigruten. We offer a range of magnificent voyages along the long and rugged Norwegian coast. Today the Hurtigruten fleet is equipped with modern facilities, yet a voyage on board one of these coastal steamers holds its traditional charm. The ships continue to service the numerous small coastal villages of Norway, transporting mail, goods and people just like it has done since 1893.

Ships have played a big role in the history of expeditions, sailing to the unknown and uncovering the secrets of nature. Our professionally run expedition cruises honour the seafarer heritage and take you to places often unreachable by land, to discover rare wildlife and extraordinary sceneries.

All the voyages showcase the way our forefathers travelled, without rush, taking their time to journey slowly and soak in new experiences. We hope to bring the magic of old-world voyages back to you with this exclusive selection of the most intimate vessels sailing on beautiful routes through the Nordic region and Russia.
