Wild Pacific coastal beauty 


Discover the pristine beauty of Alaska’s rugged coast, as well as Canada’s Inside Passage and the Aleutian Islands. In Misty Fjords National Monument and on remote islands you’ll see where nature reigns free. As we go, keep an eye out for brown bears on Kodiak Island and in Katmai National Park, and scout for whales, fur seals and birds including Bald Eagles and rarities like the Kittlitz’s Murrelet as we voyage south. 


Discover a living history  


Meet people belonging to Indigenous Tlingit and Unangan cultures, hunt for petroglyphs in Wrangell and follow in the footsteps of gold prospectors and explorers on your expedition cruise. You’ll visit the picturesque ghost town of Unga and uncover ancient stories on mossy totem poles at Chief Shakes Tribal House, and you’ll go home with a profound sense of knowing the culture, ecology and history of this beautiful region. 


Highlights


• Expedition cruise from Nome, Alaska, through Canada’s Inside Passage and onto the Aleutian Islands and the islands of the Bering Sea.

• Experience spectacular scenery, scout for bears and enjoy some of the best birdwatching in Alaska on the islands of St. Paul and St. Matthew.

• Discover the history of gold prospectors and explorers as we encounter indigenous Tlingit and Aleut cultures on this epic North American adventure.

Enjoy British Columbia’s largest city Our expedition cruise starts with an overnight stay in the beautiful city of Vancouver at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Vancouver's neighbourhoods buzz with restaurants offering delicious international cuisine. Don’t miss Gastown, Vancouver’s Victorian neighbourhood. Here you'll find Vancouver Lookout, offering 360º panoramic views over the city. If you have time, why not arrive early and join our optional Pre-Programme, taking a luxury train trip through the Rockies. What better way to begin your adventure.

Explore British Columbia’s largest city

After an enjoyable breakfast at your hotel, we’ll take you on a city tour showcasing the main highlights of fabulous Vancouver.   

When the tour is over, you’ll be dropped at the pier where your expedition ship MS Roald Amundsen awaits you. Settle in and take your time to get to know the ship, before listening to the safety briefing. 

Your knowledgeable Expedition Team will lead the way on excursions and landings. Get to know them and sit down to enjoy a welcome dinner — your grand Alaska adventure is now underway.   

Up close to nature as we explore islands and channels The Inside Passage coastal route takes us through great North American Pacific Fjordland, a protected stretch of water over 930 miles long. Unlike other cruises which pass through at night, we'll visit during the day. This sublime scenery is something you’ll want to make the most of. Our smaller expedition ship allows us to explore the lesser-travelled channels, so we can get closer to the beautiful and fascinating scenery. Keep your cameras and binoculars at the ready, as you catch sight of dolphins, porpoises, orcas and humpback whales. As always, there’s plenty to see and learn in the Science Center, with insightful lectures from your Expedition Team.

Alaskan wilderness where wildlife thrives all around Part of the Tongass National Forest, Misty Fjords is a pristine wilderness of evergreens, waterfalls and snow-capped peaks. Influential mountaineer John Muir described it as one of the most beautiful places he’d ever seen. Weather permitting, you'll join the Expedition Team to tour Misty Fjords on small expedition boats or take kayaks out for an optional excursion. Look out for mountain goats, bears and moose. In the water, you'll find Pacific salmon, along with otters, sea lions, harbour seals, orcas and Dall porpoises. And look skywards for hummingbirds, herons and Bald Eagles.

Visit one of Alaska’s oldest harbour towns Your cruise continues to Wrangell. Nearby is the incredible Petroglyph Beach, where you'll find around 50 ancient rock carvings. Bring paper to make some stone rubbings. Visit the local museum to learn about Wrangell's fascinating past. Now part of the US, it was once governed by Britain, Russia and Tlingit people. Cross to Shakes Island, where the Chief Shakes Tribal House and totem poles tell the story of the indigenous Tlingit. Surrounded by the alluring scenery around Stikine River and Mount Dewey, you'll enjoy the nature trails. Alternatively, join the included activity, taking small expedition boats through the breathtaking scenery and glaciers of the waters around Wrangell.

Stunning scenery and a unique mix of cultures Surrounded by Tongass National Forest, Sitka is only accessible by sea and air. Get out on deck for stunning views of the Sisters Mountains and Mount Edgecumbe Volcano. Discover Sitka's fascinating history with our Expedition Team. Inhabited by the Tlingit for 10,000 years, it was occupied by Russia in 1804, before being sold to America after the Crimean War. Today, Sitka blends all three cultures. Visit the Russian Orthodox cathedral and Russian Bishop's House. Sitka National Historic Park is a real highlight, where you'll see ornate Haida and Tlingit totem poles. Or enjoy a walking trail through the forest to the ocean.

Wildlife watching in glacier-fed waters You'll experience an amazing expedition day in Icy Bay today. Three glaciers – Guyot, Yahtse and Tyndall – regularly calf into the bay. If conditions allow, the Expedition Team will take you ashore on the 34-mile-long, 8-mile-wide Guyot Glacier or you can explore in kayaks on an optional excursion. Wildlife abounds in the Gulf of Alaska, offering unrivalled photography opportunities. Humpback whales, orcas, Stellar sea lions, sea otters and harbour seals lazing on floating chunks of ice, can be seen in these waters. Our onboard photographer is ready with expert tips on how to get the best from your camera.

A day of discovery, wellness and birdwatching at sea Our cruise continues across the Gulf of Alaska. It's the ideal time to enjoy onboard facilities like the infinity pool and hot tubs or sauna. Hit the gym, go for a run, or enjoy a massage in the spa. In the Science Center, the Expedition Team invite you to join lectures about the region’s wildlife, geology, glaciology, history and culture, preparing for our next landings. Relax in the Explorer Lounge and share a drink with your fellow shipmates or just enjoy the view. See if you can spot all three species of North Atlantic albatross. Laysan and Black-footed Albatrosses are fairly common but Short-tailed Albatrosses are a rare sight.

Home of the Alutiiq people and Kodiak brown bear Spruce forests and grasslands earned Kodiak Island its nickname: ‘the Emerald Isle’. It's the second largest island in the US, which means there's plenty to see. You'll discover the island’s rich indigenous heritage at the Alutiiq Museum. Visit the 1808 Baranov Museum, the oldest standing building in the state. Your included excursion today takes you to Fort Abercrombie State Historical Park, with its strategic WWII 1939 naval fort and bunkers. The island’s most famous inhabitants though are the Kodiak bears. Around 3,500 of these mighty creatures live in Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge, which covers two thirds of the island.

Grizzly bears and volcanoes in Katmai National Park The bear spotting continues today in the four million acre Katmai National Park, with over a dozen active volcanoes. Katmai is home to communities of brown bears, and more than 2,000 protected grizzly bears – the largest concentration in the world. Accompanied by an experienced bear guard, we'll be safely scouting for grizzlies from on deck or in small expedition boats. The bears might be foraging for berries, diving for clams, or catching fish in the stream. Depending on conditions, we'll either visit Geographic Harbor, Kinak Bay or Kukak Bay. Keep your eyes open for sea otters, seabirds and humpback whales too.

Explore rugged scenery in an untamed wilderness

The Alaska Peninsula is an untamed wilderness and a haven for wildlife. The region is characterised by its raw coastal landscapes, towering mountains and secluded bays.  

Join your Expedition Team for close exploration of hidden bays and inlets along the shoreline, offering the opportunity to scout for bears, Bald Eagles, and marine species like sea otters and humpback whales. Learn about the geological evolution of the region, appreciating how natural forces have sculpted the unique topography around you. 

Explore Unga – an Alaskan ghost town Wild and deserted, Unga Village is a picturesque, abandoned Alaskan town on the southern end of Unga Island in the remote Aleutian Islands. It was settled by Aleuts in 1833 but was abandoned in 1969 as subsistence fishing proved insufficient to support living here. Today, the handful of wooden buildings that remain are the only evidence that people once lived here. Pink lousewort, a carpet of wildflowers, and fireweed surround the abandoned shacks as nature has gradually taken over. If weather permits, we'll explore that nature on our included landing.

Diverse history and rich wildlife in a vibrant fishing hub With a volcano as its backdrop, America's largest fishing port Dutch Harbor is a fascinating place to visit. You'll be able to explore to the full with your included hop-on, hop-off shuttle ticket. Learn about the local indigenous Unungan people at the Museum of the Aleutians. Visit the Russian Orthodox Cathedral, or tour the WWII Museum commemorating the 1942 battle that took place here. Scout for Bald Eagles and puffins in the skies. Foxes, lemmings and wild horses thrive on land and whales, sea lions and porpoises in the waters. Dutch Harbor is where reality television series ‘The Deadliest Catch’ was filmed, following crab fishers at work under extreme conditions.

Enjoy the moment as we cruise along the coast Part of being on an expedition is taking time out to connect with the sights and sounds of the world around you. A day at sea lets you do just that. Sit back and take in the panoramic views from our Explorer Lounge, or enjoy the scenery glides by from the infinity pool or the outdoor hot tubs. Keep scanning the seas and skies for puffins, auklets, and murrelets, especially closer to the coast. If you’re lucky, you might glimpse the Red-legged Kittiwake, only found in this part of the world. You'll learn more about the region's geography, climate and birdlife from the Expedition Team in the Science Center and in their daily lecture programme.

Look out for wildlife on the largest Pribilof Island

The windswept island of St Paul is home to the largest Unangan community in the US, numbering around 480. You can visit the historical remains of barabaras here – traditional dwellings built half-underground to protect against the sea winds.  

St Paul is also designated an Important Bird Area, and around 300 species of migrating birds use it as a resting point. Scan for Horned and Tufted Puffins, the Pribilof Sandpiper and the rare Red-legged Kittiwake.  

On the shore, you may find northern fur seals waddling and playing – half the world's population of these charming animals live on these islands. 

Deserted settlements and rare birds on this remote island Part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge, 200 miles from the nearest village, St Matthew Island is wild, remote and isolated. A few hardy souls have tried – and failed – to make a home here. You can see traces of abandoned buildings between black sand beaches and wildflower-dotted tundra. Today, the only inhabitants are birds, including thousands of puffins, murres and cormorants. If you’re lucky on our included nature landing, you’ll catch sight of the rare McKay’s bunting, which breeds almost exclusively here. And listen out for the sound of the singing vole, named after its unusual warning cry.

International Date Line – where tomorrow meets today As we cruise the Bering Sea, you'll have Russia to the east and the United States to the west. We'll also cross the International Date Line, where ‘tomorrow’ is on your right, and ‘today’ is on your left. Natural wonders abound here so keep an eye out for humpback whales, and spot seabirds wheeling through the skies. This is your last full sea day so relax and enjoy your time on board. The Expedition Team will recap the highlights of your Alaskan adventure, and you can continue your journey of discovery in the Science Center.

Learn about Nome’s golden past

Prospectors first came to Nome in 1898, and people still hunt for gold here today. You'll see evidence of the Gold Rush all around, including abandoned dredges, turn-of-the-century steam engines and old railroad tracks, lending the town a unique atmosphere. 

Nome was the end point of three of Roald Amundsen's great polar expeditions, including an attempt by air to reach the North Pole in 1926.  

Naturally, Nome is a fitting place to bid farewell to our own MS Roald Amundsen, before flying back to Seattle, where you’ll enjoy an overnight stay. 

End your adventure in the Emerald City

Your Alaskan adventure comes to an end in Seattle. 

If you have time before your onward journey, why not head to the Seattle Aquarium to see sea otters and a giant Pacific octopus. Or for incredible views of Puget Sound and the surrounding mountains, take a stroll through the nine-acre Olympic Sculpture Park, admiring the work of renowned artists as you go.  

For a feast of the senses, visit the famous Pike Place Market. Operating for over a century, this lively farmer’s market boasts everything from buskers and bars to salmon-throwing fishmongers!

Vessel Type: Expedition

Length: 140 m

Passenger Capacity: 530

Built: 2020

MS Fridtjof Nansen is the latest addition to Hurtigruten’s fleet of custom built ships – and the next generation expedition ship. She will explore some of the most spectacular corners of the globe. Featuring Hurtigruten's revolutionary battery hybrid powered propulsion system, MS Fridtjof Nansen will be a near identical twin to her sister ship MS Roald Amundsen. Combining state of the art technology and premium on board experience with Hurtigruten’s 125 years of experience and unparalleled destinations, the two Norwegian built ships introduces the next generation of adventure travel.

Cabins and public areas

The stunning scenery will be reflected in a rich and comfortable interior design. Scandinavian materials from nature, such as granite, oak, birch and wool will be used to create relaxed and stylish cabins and public areas. All cabins are outside, 50 % will have private balconies, aft suites will feature private outdoor hot tubs with spectacular views.

Science Center

The core of the onboard experience is the Nansen Science Center, an edutainment venue to guests and crew meet to create a deeper understanding of the areas we explore. Nansen Science Center will also be the on board HQ for the Expedition Team.

Restaurants

MS Fridtjof Nansen's three restaurants will host a variety of dining options, with menus drawn from our rich Norwegian and Nordic tradition, as well as international cuisine and local inspiration. Whether enjoying your meal at Aune Main Dining, Fredheim – the informal international meeting place, or the specialty restaurant Lindstrøm, you will indulge in low key yet refined, modern Norwegian Nordic cooking – where our honest and delicious cuisine reflects our destinations.

After a day of exploring new destinations, guests can relax and rejuvenate in the elegant Explorer Lounge, a large gym and Wellness center, or enjoy the scenery and sunsets on the massive in- and outdoor Observation Decks with the aft infinity pool and hot tubs as one of the highlights.

Everything you need for an expedition cruise

Each expedition voyage is accompanied by a hand-picked team of specialists and modern-day explorers. Highly experienced, passionate and knowledgeable, the Expedition Team will be your guides and guardians on your voyage of exploration, instructing you on safety, sustainability and science. MS Fridtjof Nansen will feature a variety of custom built expedition equipment, including kayaks, a fleet of Blueye underwater drones and Expedition Boats for safe landings in remote areas.

In the footsteps of a great explorer

The newest addition to our fleet will honor the heritage of her namesake – the Norwegian explorer, scientist, humanitarian and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Fridtjof Nansen. Known for his innovations in Arctic expeditions, Nansen led the first crossing of Greenland on cross-country skis. He is perhaps most famous for his attempt to reach the geographical North Pole during the Fram Expedition (1893-1896). Interestingly, after Nansen's Fram expedition, the ship was passed on to another great explorer who secretly planned an expedition to the South Pole - Roald Amundsen.

Built: 2019

In 2019, Hurtigruten adds 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.

Facilities on board

One of the most eye-catching exterior design features of the ships will be the two-level indoor/outdoor Observation Deck wrapped around the top of the ships’ raked bow. In a vast area behind it, you’ll find the core of the onboard experience: Amundsen Science Center.  

Packed with state of the art technology and high tech gadgets such as touch screens and science equipment, the immersive edutainment area will be the place guests and staff/crew meet, mingle and create a deeper understanding for the areas they explore. The flexible venue will feature lecture spaces, a small library, and speciality areas for workshops in photography, biology, and more. The area, featuring large windows, will also be the onboard HQ for Hurtigruten’s hand picked Expedition Team.  

The stunning scenery will be reflected in a rich and comfortable interior design. Scandinavian materials from nature, such as granite, oak, birch and wool will be used to create relaxed and stylish cabins and public areas. All cabins are outside, 50 % will have private balconies, aft suites will feature private outdoor Jacuzzis with spectacular views. 

MS Roald Amundsen will feature three restaurants inspired by Nordic and Norwegian heritage:

Aune Main Dining, named after the Norwegian ship chandler and polar expedition supplier Tinus Aune.

Fredheim - the ships’ informal and social meeting place – named after a 1900s hunting station on Svalbard.

Lindstrøm, a speciality restaurant named after Adolf Lindstrøm, the favorite chef of the Norwegian polar heroes.

Artwork on board

When the world’s first hybrid powered expedition ship embarks on her maiden voyage, every piece of art on board will be handpicked by HM Queen Sonja of Norway’s art foundation - the Queen Sonja Print Award. Read more about the exciting collaboration here.
