About MS Roald Amundsen
In 2019, Hurtigruten added a brand new ship to its fleet: the MS Roald Amundsen. The state of the art vessel features new and environmentally sustainable hybrid technology that will reduce fuel consumption and show the world that hybrid propulsion on large ships is possible.
MS Roald Amundsen∘ is the first of two hybrid ships Hurtigruten will add to its fleet over the next few years, cutting emissions by sailing with electrical propulsion. Hybrid technology, combined with the advanced construction∘ of the hull and effective use of electricity on board will reduce fuel consumption∘ and CO2-emissions on the ships by 20 percent. The build of these two ships represents the largest single investment in the history of Hurtigruten.
The future of shipping will be silent and emission free. MS Roald Amundsen will lead the way towards an even more sustainable∘ way of traveling. Sailing on electrical power is not only a great benefit for the environment, but it will also enhance the impact of experiencing nature∘ for the guests. The ship will be specially constructed for voyages in polar waters and serve as a comfortable basecamp at sea – bringing adventurers from all over the world to the most spectacular destinations in the most sustainable way.

We offer a rich and varied program of optional shore excursions. We offer included excursions at many ports that can be reserved for no additional charge. In many cases, the included excursion can be combined with other optional excursions. Most excursions can be pre-booked, but may also be bookable onboard if there is enough capacity.
We advise that you book well in advance to avoid disappointment when the excursion is fully booked. Please note that registration is binding. Once on board, the expedition team will advise you of booking deadlines for excursions that are still available. Our excursions have English-speaking guides, unless stated otherwise. Other languages cannot be guaranteed, unless otherwise specified. Excursions are subject to change and possible cancellation due to weather conditions. They are also subject to a sufficient number of participants.
All expedition shore landings and small-boat cruising during our time in Antarctica are included the program. Along with the optional excursions available to book, the expedition team also arranges a variety of activities during the cruise. These vary according to location and season, but may include hiking, small-boat cruising, kayaking, snowshoeing, or camping. A limited number of kayaking slots are available for booking prior to select cruises, but all other activities are booked on board and subject to availability.
