Hurtigruten Expeditions expands its summer 2023 Arctic season with 7 new adventures taking passengers closer to the local people and communities visited, as well as deeper into the north's wilderness.

Spanning 11-19 days, the new departures from June through September (2023) will take in spectacular areas beyond/above the Arctic circle onboard the small-size expedition ship MS Maud.

The new itineraries are scheduled to depart from either Dover UK or Reykjavik (Iceland) and will take travelers to the British Isles, the Faroes, Greenland, Svalbard, and Iceland.

With the addition of Maud to the Arctic in summer 2023, Hurtigruten will offer a wider than ever selection of Arctic expedition voyages with 5 different vessels.

  • A 20-day Greenland Summer Expedition explorers Greenland’s west coast including north of Disko Bay.
  • Two 11-day Iceland Circumnavigation voyages (roundtrip from Reykjavik) take guests to some of the country’s most incredible sights, and both cross the Arctic circle.
