in Arctic

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.

Welcome to the land of forested hinterlands teeming with wildlife.

The edge
of the world

Imagine deep valleys, steep cliffs, sandy beaches and spectacular fjords. Imagine one of a kind wilderness adventures. Imagine rocky crags, drifting icebergs and whales steaming through the waves. Add charming cities and fascinating Viking history. You find all of this in Arctic Canada. 

Explore the narrow streets and hidden alleyways of St Johns, the capital of Newfoundland. This town has the perfect combination of big-city luxury and small-town charm – full of culture, history and personality. Cruise the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, where astonishing hiking trails await you. Dozens of wee fishing villages pepper the coast all the way up to Baffin Island, homeland of Inuit and a place where Viking artefacts have been discovered. 

Welcome to the land of stunning scenery, spectacular shoreline and forested hinterlands teeming with wildlife. Welcome to Arctic Canada.

“Being a parent is the best adventure so far”


Cecilie Skog is the only woman in the world to have reached The North Pole, The South Pole and the summit of Mount Everest. She has also climbed the highest mountain on each continent, known as “The Seven Summits”. The Norwegian adventurer has years of mountain and glacier guiding experience, as well as degrees in nursing and “friluftsliv”, but her greatest passion in life is her love for exploring.

Her husband Aleksander Gamme is recognized as probably the most versatile expedition profile in Norway. He has led and completed a variety of expeditions. For instance, summited Everest and several other high mountains, cycled through Sahara, completed the worlds longest skitrek, and flown up in the air with Heliumballoons. He has also published several books and articles about his adventures.

Together with their kids, they are preparing to plant a flag in Arctic Canada, representing their passion for “friluftsliv”.

The new age
of exploration
