In 1911 Roald Amundsen planted the Norwegian flag at the South Pole. 
Now it’s time for you to plant yours.

Planting a flag in the wilderness is a symbol of achievement. For some, climbing Mount Everest is worth planting a flag, while for others just getting through a night in a tent in the back yard might be worth celebrating. With Hurtigruten’s new Explorer fleet, you will have the chance to plant your personal flag in some of the most exciting and remote areas in the world.

Join our explorers

We have challenged some great explorers to plant their flag for a cause they really care about. See who they are and how they are preparing to plant their flag on some of the most beautiful and extreme corners of the world.

The new age
of exploration

The future of shipping will be silent and emission free. MS Roald Amundsen is the first of two hybrid ships Hurtigruten will add to its fleet over the next few years, cutting emissions by sailing with electrical propulsion.
