Elegant, Modern, and Environmentally-Friendly
Take in the scenery from open decks or through panoramic windows. Enjoy an active, comfortable, and truly memorable voyage on the Spitsbergen.
The Spitsbergen is named after Norway’s Arctic pearl — the largest island in the Svalbard archipelago. After a complete reconstruction, Spitsbergen joined the Hurtigruten fleet in 2016. Featuring changes that minimize the ship’s environmental footprint; comfortable, modern facilities; and equipment that enables travel in remote areas, the Spitsbergen features a fresh Scandinavian design with a color palette inspired by the sea. The ship’s optimal size and maneuverability make her highly suitable for exploring polar waters.
The Spitsbergen also has her own onboard expedition team that is dedicated to enhancing your experience by engaging you and interpreting the diverse and stunning nature, wildlife, culture, and history you encounter during your cruise.
The ship accommodates a maximum of 335 passengers.
THE HURTIGRUTEN STORY
Hurtigruten began providing steamship service between Southern and Northern Norway in 1893. This tradition continues to this day in tandem with cruises of exploration in Norway and beyond, where knowledgeable expedition teams provide insight into the stunning diversity of wilderness, flora, and fauna.
