Our Exclusive Northern Lights Promise
Northern Norway is one of the best, and most reliable, places in the world to see the northern lights. We sail in the auroral zone above the Arctic Circle, an area of intense northern lights activity around the North Pole. That means more chances to see the aurora multiple times in multiple locations. The northern lights season lasts from 1 October to 31 March within this region. We are so confident that the lights will appear on your voyage with us in this period, that we make our guests this exclusive promise. If the lights don’t appear, we will give you a six- or seven-day Classic Voyage free for another chance to see them.
Follow the Lights
Anyone who has witnessed the majesty of the aurora borealis will tell you it’s an experience that stays with you. No wonder it’s one of the primary reasons many people want to head into northern winters. Our 18-day small group journey through Norway, Finland and Estonia explores cities, charming hamlets and the Flåm Railway before sailing north from Bergen towards the Barents Sea. As we get closer to North Cape, prepare yourself for Mother Nature’s ultimate light show. Back on land, there’s also the opportunity to spend the night in a glass igloo from where you can watch the illuminated night sky. Hurtigruten’s Follow The Lights tour departs regularly from September to March, and there’s also a 14-day southbound option.
Are you a Hurtigruten Ambassador?
If you’ve ever travelled with us before, you’re eligible to be part of our 1893 Ambassador loyalty program. Generally, you’ll sign up when you book your voyage, but if that was a long time ago we may not have your details. But you’ll want us to have them. Why? Because you’ll get the latest news on itineraries and updates to our fleet, as well as any special offers. Plus, you can receive a 5% discount on a number of different voyages, including Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Voyages and Explorer Voyages, as well as free bicycle hire, a welcome basket in your cabin and a discount on selected excursions. If you’re wondering about the significance of that date, 1893 was the year Richard With started a weekly cruise service along the Norwegian coastline. More than a century later lots has changed, but we’ve kept alive the traditions of excellent seamanship, authentic experiences and a dedication to exploration.
