Hurtigruten FAQ's

Do I need to bring my Passport or ID?

Yes, so it is important to send your passport details immediately after booking. All guests checking in on board or at the Hurtigruten terminal must present a valid passport or government approved ID. If you are on an Explorer voyage, only passports valid 6 months after the voyage can be accepted.

Are your ships wheelchair accessible?

Yes, travellers who are not fully mobile are welcomed and can be fully accommodated, with wheelchair-accessible cabins and facilities available.

Is Wi-Fi available on all ships?

Yes, Wi-Fi will be included in your cruise if you have booked a Select or Premium package. However, fast Wi-fi is also available to access on all ships at a fee.

Will I have my own bathroom and toilet facilities on the ship?

With the exceptions of MS Vesterålen and MS Nordstjernen, where guests may have to share facilities with other passengers, all other ships and cabins provide individual WC and bathroom facilities.

Are pets allowed on board your ships?

Hurtigruten’s Explorer ships (MS Fram, MS Spitsbergen, MS Nordstjernen and MS Roald Amundsen) do not have pet cabins, so are unable to facilitate pets. However, apart from MS Nordlys, MS Midnatsol and MS Kong Harald, all of the Norwegian coastal ships can accommodate pets in pet cabin facilities.

If I’m travelling alone, will I have to share a cabin with a stranger?

No, you don’t have to worry about sharing a cabin with a stranger if you’re travelling alone. When you book, you are not booking a bed; rather a whole cabin, meaning you will have the entire cabin to yourself.

What is the best time to travel to see the Northern Lights?

The best time to see the Northern Lights is in winter, between the months of October until the end of March, above the Arctic Circle.
