Hurtigruten is rolling out an expanded range of escorted small group and independent land tours that will highlight the best of Scandinavia.
There are six new itineraries that combine a Hurtigruten voyage with handpicked destinations. The collection includes new Expedition Cruise tours and the popular Follow The Lights escorted small group tour. Covering Northern Lights, Midnight Sun and Spring seasons, the tours offer the best of Scandinavia throughout the year.
“Our tours are a deeply immersive experience, from the best of coastal Norway on our expedition cruises and coastal voyages to city tours that offer an in-depth insight into culture, cuisine and history, as well as an unmatched focus on nature and wildlife experiences in the Nordics,” said Damian Perry, Managing Director Hurtigruten Asia Pacific.
“Our experiences are developed with our local Norwegian team highlighting wonderful journeys available in our own backyard. We’re delighted to be able to show our guests more of Scandinavia by combining our signature voyages with exclusive land-based touring options,” Perry said.
