Press release -

Save up to $4000 this Wave season with Hurtigruten to explore one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines

Hurtigruten, the undisputed expert on Norway and its stunning coastline, is offering discounts of up to $4,000 off per person during the so-called Wave season taking place during the first quarter of 2024.

All three popular products – the Original Coastal Express that celebrated 130 years of operation this summer and the brand-new Svalbard Express and North Cape Express itineraries launched this year – are all available with discounts.

The new Svalbard Express and North Cape Express differ from the Original Coastal Express by spending more time in ports with the refurbished MS Trollfjord. The Svalbard Express is the only sailing linking the Norwegian mainland with the Svalbard archipelago and is timed around the Midnight Sun, whereas the North Cape Express sails during the popular Northern Lights season. As the Sun heads towards solar maximum in 2024/25 – a peak in solar activity that occurs every 11 years and sees an increased number of charged particles released into space, it means that the 2023/24 and 2024/25 seasons offer some of the best-ever viewing opportunities of this natural phenomena.

The Svalbard Express is up to $4,000 off for sailings from May through September 2024, while guests can save up to $3,000 when traveling on the North Cape Express between December 2024 and April 2025. On the Original Coastal Express, savings of up to $2,000 are available on sailings between April and December 2024. All trips must be booked by March 31, 2024.

“With our 130-year legacy of sailing the Norwegian coast, no one knows Norway better than Hurtigruten, and no one does Norway better than us. We offer a distinctively different cruise experience where you travel like a local on small ships, explore gorgeous fjords, visit small, otherwise hard-to-reach towns along the coast, and enjoy lectures onboard to learn more about Norwegian traditions, history, and people. On top of that, you will indulge in delicious food, of which 80% is locally produced, including the world’s best cheese, or can order sparkling wine that has been submerged in the Arctic Ocean for six months, served exclusively onboard our ships,” said Carly Biggart, VP of Sales & Marketing for Hurtigruten Americas.

Nidelven Blå, produced by Gangstand Gårdsysteri, was named the World’s Best Cheese at the 2023 World Cheese Awards, which recently took place in Trondheim, Norway.
