Hurtigruten Cruise Line Health & Safety Protocols

At Hurtigruten, safety always has been, and always will be, the number one priority. With over 127 years of experience, strict procedures have been established for protection against infectious diseases onboard.

Hurtigruten Excursion Safety

You have the opportunity to go ashore at several places, and the number of people who board and disembark the ship at any given time will be regulated, to control the flow of people getting on and off the ship.

Hurtigruten Staff Safety

All staff follow national guidelines from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health at all times.

Along the Norwegian coast, land and access to the onshore health service is never far; meanwhile Hurtigruten's expedition ships always have a doctor and at least one assistant nurse as part of the crew. Should there be a case of COVID-19 on board, infection tracking protocols will be immediately carried out, together with the Norwegian authorities.
