Hurtigruten is the original coastal voyage, dating from 1893.

Our DNA and our history go back to Richard With. Together with Norway’s Polar heroes, Nansen and Amundsen, he was one of the nation’s maritime pioneers. His creation combined the need for communication along the Norwegian coast with an innovative tourist product.

The coastal voyage opened new opportunities for both local people and visitors. In a coastal nation characterised by high mountains and long fjords, the sea offered the only way to tie the land together.

Hurtigruten represented a communication revolution along the Norwegian coast, and provided a service for everyone – freight transporters, local people and foreign tourists. Richard With contributed to the economic base of local communities and the interaction between them. Just as we do today, he also welcomed visitors to explore, see and learn about Norwegian nature and local culture.

Since 1893, Hurtigruten has been impossible to replace – impossible to copy.

Our DNA makes us real. This will characterize our business, our choices and our actions, as it has done since 1893.
